The international MALL group, with the online portal mall.cz, is the leading online trader in the Eastern European region. Currently, the MALL group supplies 18 Eastern European countries with a total population of 130 million people and plans to continually expand its market.
Against the background of this growth strategy and the increasing order numbers, as well as the time-consuming manual processes involved in consolidating and packing orders, Mall.cz decided to build a new highly-automated distribution centre just outside of Prague.
The KNAPP team designed a solution for the project that won over Mall.cz thanks to its high flexibility and scalability. The fact that the solution is able to grow through the years as the demand for performance increases, proved to be especially convincing.
KNAPP’s solution directly addresses the specific requirements of Mall.cz and provides fast and efficient order processing. At the heart of the 50,000 m² logistics solution is a pocket sorter system with matrix sortation, which is combined with an OSR Shuttle™ and high-performance conveyors, upon which most of the goods can be conveyed directly. Highly automated processes, coupled with manual processes, provide the right support for the rapid growth Mall.cz is experiencing, and allow the company to provide optimal customer service with same and next day delivery. At the same time, the mix of technologies provides Mall.cz with maximum cost efficiency and flexibility in processing the wide range of articles and large order volume.
KiSoft acts as the warehouse control system (WCS), managing, monitoring and optimizing all the processes in the warehouse. In addition, KiSoft also communicates with the control systems of the subsystems, such as the control software KiSoft SRC for the OSR Shuttle™.
