Nelly's new warehouse gets a modern automation solution for fast and efficient deliveries
Nelly Group AB (publ) (“Nelly”) gathers its operations in Borås to boost cooperation and efficiency. As previously announced, Nelly will move its warehouse from Falkenberg to Borås in 2021. It has now been decided that Nelly's new and energy efficient warehouse will be automated through an AutoStore system supplied by Element Logic.
The automation solution is manufactured by Autostore, designed and delivered by Element Logic and financed through a supplement on the rent to Catena, the incoming owner of the new warehouse premises in Borås. The investment in automation and track systems amounts to SEK 84 million and is paid for via the rent supplement over 10 years. Nelly has the option to settle the remaining amount of the investment in advance.
“Nelly is one of the Nordic region's strongest fashion brands for young women. We build on our Nelly culture by gathering in Borås in modern premises. Our 1.2 million customers make 2.8 million purchases per year with great demands on our logistics. Next year, we will take logistics to a higher level with a new automated warehouse to boost efficiency and facilitate fast and precise deliveries,” says Kristina Lukes, CEO of Nelly.
“Element Logic is a leader in intralogistics by offering tailored warehousing solutions that optimize performance and efficiency. We look forward to working with Nelly to develop their logistics to the next level,” says Thomas Karlsson, MD of Element Logic Sweden AB.
The AutoStore system is a modular and flexible automation solution and includes battery-powered robots, storage bins, operator ports and an aluminium framework where each order is processed at high-speed using robots that bring the bins to and from picking stations conveniently presented to the operators.
Borås is a leading cluster in Swedish fashion and e-commerce with an excellent logistics location.
