Logistex Ltd  Case Study

Logistex can trace its roots back to the 1920s when it started as Cleco, a name synonymous with advanced and sophisticated automated systems throughout the latter part of the 20th century.

As the world of IT and software systems became more advanced, the company acquired and developed specialist expertise during the 1980s and has become one of the foremost integrator of full turnkey solutions specialising in every aspect of internal IT systems in the market.

Logistex were asked to consult on the design for a new Distribution Centre for global women’s fashion retailer QUIZ, as part of their planned growth. With the plans in place Logistex sourced the solutions which included the requirement for a hanging garment storage and transport system so they talked to Stockrail.

In depth discussions with their Project Team and Stockrail came up with a design which came to fruition with materials being delivered to the new site in July 2015.

The majority of new products are received in cartons from the suppliers but a small proportion is received hanging. Therefore we supplied an extendable boom system which reaches up to 10 metres into the trailer. The infeed transport line also services 12 receiving benches from which garments are unboxed, scanned in to the warehouse as a “slug” via the Logistex Reflex WMS. Each “slug” of garments is separated by coloured markers to keep the integrity of the “slug”.

“Slugs” are switched onto the transport line linking into the inbound buffer area consisting of 15 lines between 23.5 and 33 metres long gives a storage capacity of over 20,000 items. At this point the garments will be transferred to the Daily Pick area or through to the hanging storage system for replenishment.

Replenishment stock will be transferred to the Daily Pick via a 70 metre long Overhead Power & Free conveyor system which lifts garments onto the mezzanine floor and back down to ground level so not to disrupt the accessories picking operation.

New and store replenishment stock is distributed in cartons. Product is sorted into the store allocations via the HangerGlide system snaking around the Live Storage system and placed into the cartons.

To handle the increasing numbers of e-commerce orders the picked orders are transported via the HangerGlide around the hanging system and the accessories areas on specially designed carriers servicing the packing benches.

Store and e-commerce cartons are placed onto the Powered Roller Conveyors and transported through to the dispatch area.
