Automated warehouse solutions provider TGW has entered the Turkish market with its first systems integration project in the country. The order is from Mediterranean fashion brand, DeFacto.
Part of the Ozon Giyim Group, DeFacto is entrusting TGW with the implementation of an extensive logistics installation at its new distribution centre in Çerkezköy, Tekirdağ, 100km west of Istanbul. As one of the top brands in the Mediterranean and with 190 stores in Turkey, DeFacto is investing in the facility to support its plans for future growth.
A new 55,000 sq m logistics building will be constructed at the site. In this building TGW will install a carton warehouse with 12 aisles and a capacity of almost 200,000 storage locations. 12 Magito stacker cranes with Twister load handling devices will enable high storage and retrieval performance. A conveyor system, which will be specially adapted to DeFacto’s requirements and a tilt tray sorter will distribute the goods within the distribution centre.
The entire installation will be controlled and organised by TGW’s Warehouse Management and Materials Flow Controls System.
The project is scheduled to go live in spring 2014, after which TGW’s specialist resident engineers will support DeFacto in maintaining the automated material handling solution.
