About PC Componentes

Established in 2005, PC Componentes is a leading computer technology and components company in Spain, specializing in electronic and IT equipment distribution across Europe. Operating from a new 40,000 m² (430,550 ft2) warehouse in Alhama de Murcia (south-east Spain), they offer over 80,000 references on their website.

The Challenge

Since 2005, PC Componentes has experienced substantial growth, leading to significant expansions driven by both the company’s upward trajectory, the need to accommodate rising demands for expedited shipping in e-Commerce orders, and evolving storage requirements. As they sought to integrate an order fulfillment system into the core of their new warehouse operations, three main priorities guided their decision-making process.

  • Improve productivity
  • Gain ability to quickly scale operations with future growth
  • Guarantee operational flexibility for an unpredictable future
