tote stacking & dispatch
Setting The Scene
H&M’s first omnichannel distribution centre in Milton Keynes was built to service both H&M stores and online customers across the UK and Ireland.
With their customers increasingly choosing to shop with them in an omnichannel way the facility was built to house a more technology driven approach to fulfil orders. With Automation in place H&M have reduced the need for employees to engage in repetitive tasks, while enabling improvements for customer service.
The LAC Logistics Automation project was to develop a bespoke robotic solution to process in-store orders. Working with SSI Shaefer as part of the wider scope, L-A-C designed, manufactured, and installed a multiple 6-axis robotic tote and dolly handling solution.
With high-tech in place the facility is fulfilling customer demands in a faster and more efficient manner.
