Automation specialist Vanderlande has signed a contract with footwear brand Crocs to support its growth throughout the EMEA regions.
The shoe company required a new automated process after seeing growth in 2020, and the company has since partnered with Vanderlande.
The automation company’s ‘Adapto’ which is an automated storage and retrieval system, and part of its Fastpick system will be central to the operation in Dordrecht, to enable a more efficient process when delivering goods to both businesses and consumers.
Dennis Boor, Senior Director Distribution & Logistics EMEA at Crocs said: “Vanderlande’s Fastpick is the ideal solution because it gives us the desired flexibility and will help us manage current and anticipated growth.
“An example of what impressed us was the capacity to easily scale up the system to achieve a higher throughput, if required. Moving our operations required careful planning, so we are delighted that the technology within the Dordrecht DC is in such safe hands.”
