Asda, Great Britain: Boost of distribution center efficiency

ASDA is one of Britain’s leading retailers with over 180,000 colleagues serving 18 million customers. With over 550 stores selling more than 75,000 products including groceries, clothing, household goods and electronics, ASDA is constantly looking for ways to improve the use of space in its distrubution centers.

Space efficiency and future growth

Storage efficiency has allowed maximum utilization of space in the distributon center and picking time has halved.

The whole system was implemented without disruption. ASDA can manage several thousand different product lines, while allowing for future expansion.

Advanced technology in the warehouse helps ASDA to keep store shelves stocked 24/7. Its Lutterworth IDC integrated distribution center is one of the most complex depots in its logistics network. It selected Swisslog‘s AutoStore to handle small case lines in a more space efficient and productive way.
