Leading technologies and decades of application experience are in every JACK WOLFSKIN product, turning "At Home Outdoors" into a reality for the end consumer. The extraordinary growth of the outdoor specialist called for an extension of the warehousing and logistics systems. For this reason, the company turned to TGW to outfit a new distribution centre featuring TGW's innovative storage and order picking systems.
After intensive planning and 18 months of realisation and conversion of the entire logistics organisation, the new Jack Wolfskin logistics centre has been in full operation since the summer of 2010 and now supplies all of Europe.
The new logistics centre in Neu Wulmstorf (Germany) serves about 3,000 points of sale in all of Europe and completely relies on direct carton handling – pallets, trays, or other additional load carriers are not needed. The new logistics centre's 30,000 m² footprint, which can be expanded by an additional 20,000, is designed to allow the company to grow at this site for more than 10 years so that all of Europe can continue to be supplied from this point.
"TGW managed to guide us out of the Stone Age into the modern era of logistics. It not only managed to implement a solution, but it included our entire company and organisation."
