From the French village Garons, ASICS distributes their products all around Europe. As a leading brand of sports shoes and sportswear, ASICS supplies 10,000 stores in 20 European countries. During peak periods, up to 55,000 running shoes leave the new distribution center in France every day.
ASICS’ mission: To provide the best sports equipment for a healthy lifestyle as quickly as possible. And this is where KNAPP’s logistics and software solutions come in: KNAPP supplied ASICS with an automated storage and picking system, the OSR Shuttle™ Evo, and five Pick-it-Easy work stations. Coupled with the intelligent KiSoft logistics software, all relevant information and performance data is available at a glance.
“The solution had to be compatible with our WMS. We also needed a strong partner who could manage the project and handle both the software and technical rollout,” explains Maider Thicoipe, Operational Support Manager at ASICS, with regard to the system requirements. The solution was implemented according to ASICS’ needs.
