Blåkläder is one of Europe's largest producers of proffesional workwear, gloves and shoes. Over 3 million garments produced annually in its own factories.
Due to increased sales, expansion plans began almost two years ago. Another
warehouse was acquired in Svenljunga. Together with their consultant company ProFlow in Borås, they devel
oped a concept with a completely new goods receiving and buffer stock in the new building.
A deeper development in IT-support together with a shuttle-solution between the buffer warehouse and the order-picking warehouse provided an efficient flow.
EAB supplied among other things a 8 m high VNA shelving solution with guid
e rails for the manual man-up orderpicking trucks. Each section consists of 20 shelves in height, and a total of over 17,000 shelf, where it currently stores more than 50,000 boxes. Besides the VNA shelving have EAB also delivered pallet racking by over 2000 pallet locations and an expanded order-picking warehouse. The solution in the order-picking warehouse consist of live storage shelving for both pallets and boxes.
