What do today’s fashion consumers expect, and how can your warehouse effectively meet these demands? While there’s no silver bullet, elegant warehouse robotics can help apparel brands address a wide range of operational needs and get ahead of the competition.
Customers want their orders, and they want them quickly. In fact, 40% of global shoppers hope to receive their order within 24 hours of placing it.
With warehouse robotic solutions, you can cut order preparation to 5 minutes AND eliminate costly picking errors…
In-store or Home Delivery?
It doesn’t matter whether your customers prefer in-store experiences or shopping from the comfort of their couch. What matters is that you make it fast and convenient.
With channel-agnostic robotic systems, you can be sure that your customers are getting what they want and how they want it.
Capitalize on Trends
Capitalize on viral trends without losing sales to slow delivery, as seen with fleeting fads like fidget spinners where 25% of shoppers cancel slow orders.
Give your warehouse operators peace of mind knowing they can accommodate a sudden peak with a reactive and reliable order picking system that can be scaled within minutes by adding more robots.
Maximize Storage Space
Putting your warehouse closer to your customers can be costly, especially in populated urban areas.
Make the most of your expensive warehouse space by utilizing vertical space effectively.
The Personal Touch
Customer loyalty is king, but the same goes for employees. Are your operators doing too much?
Instantly increase employee retention and satisfaction with ergonomic robotic solutions.

In bins or boxes, Skypod® robots are capable of carrying up to 30 kg (66.4 lb).
The Skypod system natively supports the following item identification methods:
1-D: EAN8, EAN13, UPC, Code 39, Code 93, Code 128, ITF, Interleaved 2 of 5, CIP Pharmacode, Plessey code
2-D: QR Code, DataMatrix, Aztec Code.
Physical RFID support can be added using a specific device adapted and installed at the station level.
Our software, Deepsky, is a powerful WES (Warehouse Execution System). It is fully configurable and can be adapted to any interface: third-party machine WCS (Warehouse Control System), WMS (Warehouse Management System), or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning).
The racking of the Skypod system is designed to be compliant with FM Global standards for Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) concerning fire risks, to support the storage of Class 1, 2, 3, 4, and plastic commodities (refer to FM Global datasheet 8-9).
For other types of commodities, a study can be conducted in collaboration with your commercial unit and insurance company.
All items can be reached in less than 2 minutes, so we do not need to perform a Pareto analysis. Our storage is random. What is the average deployment time for a project?
The average installation time for a Skypod system is 9 to 12 months.
We can achieve a maximum of 600 picks per hour with the Skypicker depending on the type of order and the number of items per order line. As for the manual station, we are around 400 picks per hour.
Our storage racks can reach up to 12 meters high (39ft).
Our manual stations can be supplemented with a device called Order Mover, allowing the preparation of up to 4 orders simultaneously directly into their final container if it is compatible.
Bins can be divided into 2, 3, 4, 6, or 8 compartments using removable plastic separators. When using compartments to divide the bins, items that are commonly ordered together can be placed in the same bin to further increase overall efficiency.
