Fashion platform Zalando and its partner Ingram Micro officially opened a new fulfilment centre in Brunna, near Stockholm, Sweden. The new fulfilment centre, with its central location in the Nordics, will cut lead times in half for customers from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark.

In this new fulfilment centre, Zalando is using new automation solutions to increase efficiency, to meet growth targets and support manual work for employees. The automation processes focus on outbound, with aims of a faster delivery to the customer. “Zalando believes in cutting-edge automation solutions. We use automation technologies to ease the workload of our employees, by taking on monotonous and non-ergonomic tasks,” says Jan Bartels, VP Customer Fulfillment and Logistics at Zalando.

The location near Stockholm was mainly chosen due to its advanced infrastructure and strategic position, making it ideal for catering to Nordic consumers. Furthermore, the location has the full potential for next day deliveries to the Nordic capitals and same day delivery in Stockholm. According to Kenneth Melchior, Director Northern Europe at Zalando: “The Nordics are one of the fastest growing regions for Zalando, and we want to increase our growth, both in terms of revenues and active customers. In order to do this, we need to get closer to Nordic consumers. Shortening lead times through opening a satellite warehouse in Sweden and providing a strong Nordic assortment are key elements going forward.”
