Next high summer season will be memorable for the Czech retailer Sportisimo – all the products will be stored and distributed from a new 90 000 square-meters distribution center in Hrusov near Ostrava. Sportisimo sets the bar high by equipping the warehouse with the latest technologies and automation solutions. It will surely help run all the processes like clockwork and hold the position as a market leader in selling sports good. Both Warehouse Management System and Warehouse Control System will be provided by Consafe Logistics – their new partner in warehouse managing.
The Czech’s leading retailer in sports good announced opening date of their new distribution center for February 2022, and to start increasing efficiency of the company as soon as possible Astro WMS® and Astro WCS® will future-proof supply chain from the day one. Implementation of the systems is preceded by many thorough analysis and meetings with the teams responsible for the project on both sides. It is crucial to understand and plan every process in the warehouse in advance – how the articles are divided in terms of slot types, how the goods are being received and picked, what should be done to minimize distances in pick routes, what dashboards will be needed, and many more. The warehouse, as a strategic place of the company, should run like a well-oiled machine, which will serve the customers both from almost 200 brick-and-mortar stores located in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria and e-commerce.
“We are thrilled to be able to continue our growth with Consafe Logistics. The key requirement to have a system supplier with a holistic approach on the whole supply chain, not only the feeling of narrow part of it, was met. Moreover the experience with the biggest retail chains and their proactivity and challenging way of acting rounded out the picture. Also the ability of choosing between SaaS and on-premise solution is very attractive – especially in the industry which records noticeable peaks amongst the year. We are very curious about the first results which are expected to be seen by the end of 2022.” – says Martin Cabadaj, Logistics Process Manager at Sportisimo.
Sportisimo is the first Czech company to implement Astro WMS® in their warehouse and the part of Consafe Logistics’ expansion plan in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
