TGW is adding FlashPick® to the existing fulfilment center in Bruges. The smart system for automatic split case picking enables the Belgium-based work clothing specialist to reduce its lead times and speed up deliveries. With this addition, DASSY professional workwear is laying the foundation for the growth planned for the coming years. Plans call for the highly automated solution to go online during the summer 2021.
DASSY professional workwear was founded in 2007. With over 45 years of experience in manufacturing workwear, it is one of the leading European brands for premium work apparel. The company is active in 20 countries and supplies more than 1,000 specialist traders. Its product range includes specialised workwear for different categories of occupations, from crafts to road construction. The distribution centre in Bruges has 800,000 products in stock at all times, including work trousers, jackets, protective equipment and safety shoes.
The core of the TGW solution is FlashPick® – the smart one-stop solution for automatic split case picking. Faster lead times enable earlier deliveries and/or later order acceptance, giving processes a lasting boost in speed. In goods receiving, a TGW robot first opens all incoming cartons before placing them on trays. The cartons are then stored in a three-aisle Stingray shuttle system with a capacity of more than 50.000 storage locations. From there, orders reach the PickCenter One picking workstations and from there, the shipping area.
“The TGW solution combines high performance with intelligent software and high reliability,” underscores Hans de Sutter, Managing Director at TGW Benelux. “In the event of a change in the order structure or customer behaviour, FlashPick® offers maximum flexibility – and can also scale quickly if necessary. In intralogistics, DASSY thus provides the basis for its planned growth. The project is realised in close cooperation by TGW specialists from France, Spain and the Benelux.”
