Ferag’s advanced pouch sorter system, Skyfall, is helping to automate logistics processes and handle e-commerce orders at shoe manufacturer, Crocs, in Dayton, Ohio (USA).

The project involves expanding the existing distribution centre by more than 70,000m2 (230,000ft2) and is taking place under the direction of Bastian Solutions, a Toyota Advanced Logistics company. In the first phase, the Skyfall system will be equipped with 33,500 pouches that act as a dynamic, constantly rotating circulating buffer as a result of Ferag’s new U-turn switch. Commissioning is planned in several stages up to August 2022.

According to system integrator, Bastian Solutions, the Skyfall pouch sorter from Ferag proved the best technology for helping Crocs meet its strategic business growth plans, working in combination with the upstream AutoStore system. The goal was to find a high-performance, high-precision ‘order fulfilment machine’ that is able to reliably process up to 40,000 units an hour at peak times, when complete. A further decisive point was flexibility.
