Spar: Automation offers scope for growth

As a result of the growth of the international food retailer Spar, the existing distribution center threatened to become too small. The premises of the neighbours (Xenos) seemed to be available. With a few little changes this became the perfect solution for Spar.

Increased capacity

Spar was looking for a solution to expand its distribution center in Waalwijk, the Netherlands. A few years before Swisslog had automated the warehouse of their neighbours. This warehouse became available and after a study Spar decided to use these premises for their expansion. Swisslog helped Spar to adapt the software.
