DB Schenker has implemented AutoStore in order to optimize logistics solutions for e-commerce customers • Logistics center in Gothenburg offers unique flexibility for sustainable omnichannel solutions.
DB Schenker has successfully implemented AutoStore, an automated goods-to-person system, in order to improve logistics for MQ Marqet, a leading retailer for high-quality fashion in Sweden. The automated online order fulfillment and returns handling solution, which operates in Gothenburg, sets the bar for sustainable and agile logistics and will strengthen DB Schenker’s position in e-commerce.
The automated storage and retrieval system uses warehouse robots to deliver and retrieve bins for operators. It runs on intelligent software that is linked to DB Schenker’s warehouse management system. The overall solution also includes a sorting plant and a section for hanging garments – i.e. for e-commerce and store-replenishment operations at MQ Marqet.
AutoStore is part of DB Schenker’s e-commerce portfolio, which is targeted at customers with extensive online business operations that are looking to achieve significant efficiency gains. Investment in the automation of inventory management underscores DB Schenker’s ambition to shape the future of modern omnichannel retail operations both online and in-store.
