The Fnac retail group is investing in its logistics processes in Spain. In the Madrid metropolitan area, a Ferag Denisort is reducing replenishment times for the stores, with the company’s e-commerce business to follow soon.
Swiss intralogistics experts Ferag are responsible for the automation project in the Madrid metropolitan area, and have decided to introduce the Denisort sorting system. The installation is more than 120 m long. The Swiss-made sorting solution is particularly sought after by retailers that offer a broad range of products, as its tilting trays can handle items of all shapes and sizes – thereby making order picking for the stores, and in future e-commerce customers, easier. In Rivas-Vaciamadrid, the system serves 230 different sorting destinations.
It can also be used to process returns. In total, its sorting capacity can reach up to 7200 product units per hour. The solution also includes management software that is fully integrated into Fnac Spain’s IT system. Shift leaders and managers therefore always have an overview of picking progress, returns, KPIs and problems with the system.
