Qérys Group - Case Study



Explore how Qérys Group successfully implemented the Exotec Skypod system on schedule, despite pandemic-related challenges, doubling their throughput capabilities to meet the urgent needs of their customers.

About Qérys Group

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

The Challenge

Over the years, Qérys Group subsidiaries’ offers have grown to include more than 40,000 items. 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 infrastructure.

Key Results

1. Improved Efficiency

  • Utilized entire height of warehouse with 11.6 m (38 ft) tall racks to increase storage density by 4X
  • Eliminated production bottlenecks from high-rotation items among over 40,000 references, ensuring retrieval of any SKU to a picking station within 2 minutes

3. Plug & Play Modularity 

  • Installed with minimal interruptions to ongoing operations and ahead of schedule despite COVID-19 restrictions
  • Seamlessly connected to existing order fulfilment systems

“One of the major advantage of the Exotec system is that there is no bottleneck, no lifts. We have 60 robots, so 60 ways to access our goods.”
