The facility design considered Crocs’ strategic business and growth plans over the next decade, and the system includes incredible flexibility that will allow Crocs to adapt to any changes in consumer buying, order profiles, seasonality, and even changes within Crocs’ product line. As the facility will be capable of processing more than 40,000 units per hour during peak consumer demand, a highly accurate order fulfillment engine such as Bastian Solutions’ Exacta WES was paramount for Crocs.”
