LIDS Sports Group has launched its newly installed goods-to-person solution, utilizing Swisslog’s award-winning AutoStore robotic storage system at its Central Distribution Center in Indianapolis, USA. The new solution will allow LIDS Sports Group to expand the storage capabilities and throughput for its extensive product assortment within an existing building.
LIDS Sports Group is a leading specialty retailer of officially licensed and branded apparel, headwear and accessories. With a vast assortment of both professional and college sports teams, it serves the core sports fan and fashion conscious, trend-savvy customer.
“LIDS and Locker Room by LIDS offer products from any team, any time, to any where and with the new Swisslog solution, our company is better equipped to continue to live up this promise.” said Tony DeFrench, vice president of operations for LIDS Sports Group. “Most importantly, this solution grows with us so our customers can receive the same quick and efficient order process as our company continues to expand.”
Swisslog was commissioned during 2014 to implement the new system into LIDS Sports Group’s existing facility. It is comprised of 22,246 storage bins, 30 robots and five pick stations. “At Swisslog, we do much more than install simple systems. We develop warehouse solutions coordinated precisely and strategically that can be integrated with the client’s current warehouse management system,” says James Sharples, Managing Director at Swisslog. “We are proud to have installed LIDS Sports Group’s previous warehouse management software and honored to be able to partner with them again as their phenomenal growth and success requires more complex solutions.”
