All the subsidiaries of the Qérys Group offer a global range of products for home improvement. Orders are processed by two logistics platforms, WSL33 and WSL36. WSL36 processes an average of over 4,200 orders per day.

  • Location: Buzançais, France
  • Distribution: e-Commerce and B2B
  • Surface area: 32 000 m²

Over the years, the Group’s subsidiaries’ offer has grown to include over 40,000 items held in inventory. In order to meet its service commitments, Qérys Group needed to implement a faster and more efficient fulfillment system that could connect and evolve seamlessly with the existing organization. Despite the logistical challenges posed by the pandemic, Exotec installed a Skypod system and a conveyor network without causing any production interruptions.
