From its warehouse in Salamanca, Spain, Recio supplies perfumes and cosmetics to more than 200 stores and 2,000 wholesale customers. Around 15 years ago, it decided to increase sales through its network of stores. However, Recio needed an order processing system that combined state-of-the-art technology with traditional methods.
In recent years, the company’s growth meant its system was approaching its peak capacity. Recio had to process 14,000 order lines per day, comprising 54,000 units picked from 15,000 SKUs. It needed an order processing system that combined state-of-the-art technology with traditional methods to facilitate future growth.
To meet these challenges, Vanderlande proposed ADAPTO, a highly flexible 3D storage, retrieval and transportation system. ADAPTO ensures easy access to products at all times. Recio’s operations are now more robust and efficient, and productivity and throughput have also been increased. Due to the flexibility and scalability of ADAPTO, shuttles and lifts can also be added at a later date.
