Work Clothing Specialist DASSY Appoints TGW for the Expansion of Their Distribution Center

(Marchtrenk, Austria, March 10, 2021) – TGW has been appointed to upgrade the existing fulfillment center for DASSY professional workwear in Bruge, Belgium by implementing the FlashPick® order fulfillment system. The smart system for automatic split case picking enables the workwear clothing specialist to reduce its lead times and speed up deliveries. With this upgrade, DASSY professional workwear is laying the foundation for the growth planned in the coming years. Go-live is planned for summer 2021.

DASSY professional workwear was founded in 2007. With over 45 years of experience in manufacturing workwear, they are one of the leading brands in Europe for premium work apparel. The company is operating in 20 countries and supplies more than 1,000 specialist retailers. Their product range includes specialized workwear for different categories of occupations, from crafts to road construction. The distribution center in Bruges has 800,000 products in stock at all times, including work trousers, jackets, protective equipment and safety shoes.

FlashPick® allows for maximum flexibility

At the core of the end-to-end solution is FlashPick® – TGW’s order fulfillment system for automatic split case picking. Faster lead times enable earlier deliveries and/or later cut-off times, giving processes a boost in speed. At goods receipt, a TGW robot first opens all incoming cartons before placing them on trays. The cartons are then stored in a shuttle system with a capacity of more than 50.000 storage locations. Orders are being picked at the highly ergonomic PickCenter One workstations before they are being forwarded to the shipping area.

‘The TGW solution combines high performance with intelligent software and high reliability,’ underscores Hans de Sutter, Managing Director at TGW Benelux. ‘In the event of a change in the order structure or customer behavior, FlashPick® offers maximum flexibility – and can also scale quickly if necessary. By implementing this new solution DASSY lays the foundation for its planned growth. The project is being realized in close cooperation with TGW specialists from France, Spain and the Benelux.’
