Exotec - whole warehouse



Since 1996, Logilec has provided logistic solutions for E.Leclerc, which is a hypermarket and cooperative society chain with more than 800 locations throughout Europe.

  • Location: Chartres, France
  • Distribution: e-Commerce
  • Products: Healthcare and leisure goods

Always on the lookout for innovation, Logilec was drawn to Exotec in 2018 by the Skypod system’s ability to increase the speed of their e-commerce order fulfillment performance and be installed with little to no downtime to ongoing operations. The latter was achieved by installing the system in phases. The first phase included nearly 10,000 bins and six stations. An additional 20,000 bins and two stations were added a few months later. To maximize efficiency, Logilec went on to install two Skypicker stations, which fully automate the picking process for 50% of ordered goods.
