Exotec deployed its first e-Commerce solution through a partnership with C-discount, the leading French e-retailer. Our order preparation system was successfully implemented in 3 of its warehouses and proved perfectly adapted to match the needs of this type of activity. Many customers have chosen us since: major distribution companies and SMEs in a wide range of activities such as textile, cultural products, pharmacy, cosmetics, home furnishings or food.

The challenges of e-commerce

All e-Commerce players are looking for a 100% accuracy in order preparation at the lowest possible cost. Because of a high growth rate and a seasonality that is more and more marked with major sales events like Black Friday, it has become challenging to plan and scale logistics needs. Efficiency and agility have become the key drivers when choosing an order preparation system.

Why automate with Exotec?

The Skypod System meets both requirements. The productivity of our stations can reach up to 600 items per hour and an increased flow capacity can be achieved by simply adding a robot to the system.

What makes our system so agile ? The racks. Since they are completely passive, the installation lead time is much shorter than traditional Good-to-Person systems and it can be scaled to match the activity growth. When Logilec, Leclerc’s e-commerce subsidiary, switched to an automated order preparation system, they naturally chose Exotec: they could implement the system in their warehouse in 2 phases without business interruption.

For an optimized flexibility and quick ROI, we size our systems for an average activity and offer a robot rental service to cover seasonal peaks. 

  • Industry

    The industrial supply industry, whether for building supplies or automotive parts, is characterized by complex logistics that require a great deal of flexibility to handle a wide and heterogeneous range of products, a very high level of distribution, small but frequent orders, and often a multi-location organization.

  • Retail

    With the rapid expansion of omnichannel sales, retail chains are rethinking their warehouse logistics. Some players opted for separate logistics organizations, others are looking to rationalize their stocks and centralize operations. If all of them already operate with mechanized systems and high-speed platforms, the expanding number of items combined with the acceleration of collections renewals and new service offerings require automation.  

  • Grocery

    The Skypod System is particularly well suited to meet the increasing demand for delivery and curbside pick-up in the food sector, whether for pure-players or general retailers.
