Children’s clothing brand chooses Ferag

IntraLogisteX exhibitor Ferag has partnered with one of Spains’s leading kid’s clothing brands, Mayoral to boost operations with its automated Skyfall system.

Partnering with Ferag in 2017, Mayoral Group commissioned an automated warehouse system at a new site in Malaga using Ferag’s Skyfall overhead pouch sorter. The investment would provide Mayoral with a single system capable of performing the four separate mechanised processes carried out at its existing distribution centre, ‘Mayoral 1’.

A new Skyfall system was installed in a repurposed spinning mill on the outskirts of Malaga and was called Mayoral 2. It went live in July 2019 and was handed over in February 2020. 

In total some 58,000 Skyfall shuttles are in use throughout the system – 50,000 carrying pouches and 8000 used for GoH – which together with over two kilometers of circulation conveyors, a fully automatic loading station for hanging garments, 10 semi-automatic loading stations for pouch induction and 12 fully automatic unloading stations, makes Mayoral 2 Ferag’s largest and most advanced Skyfall application to date. 

Salvador García De-Lucchi, Technical Director at Mayoral Group said: “We needed to upscale our fulfilment operations to keep pace with the growth of the business. Customer service is everything to us, so ensuring product availability in our stores and fast delivery of online orders is of critical importance to the success of our business. The simplicity of the Ferag solution in offering a single flexible process for the preparation of all types of orders brings significant benefits in the form of efficient inventory management, smooth and reliable logistics flows, and increased operational performance.”
