(Marchtrenk, Austria, July 22, 2020) Urban Outfitters, Inc. (URBN), a leading lifestyle products and services company, which operates a portfolio of global consumer brands comprised of Anthropologie, BHLDN, Free People, Terrain, Urban Outfitters, Nuuly and a Food and Beverage division, has appointed TGW to design and implement an automation solution for their new fulfilment centre in the UK. The project is due to go live in 2021.
A FlashPick® system
is at the heart of the solution. At goods receiving, cartons are emptied into totes and transported to the mini-load warehouse, which is used to feed the Stingray shuttle. Totes are then transported to 15 goods-to-person workstations, where items are picked into either target cartons or totes.
The different areas are connected by an energy-efficient KingDrive® conveyor
system. The TGW warehouse control system interfaces with a Manhattan WMS. Furthermore, TGW´s smart picking robot Rovolution
will be installed at the URBN distribution centre.
