From Concept to Micro-Fulfillment Reality, Decathlon Deploys GTP Robot Solution
“Decathlon’s goal was to create a new, unique and better customer journey with ideally removing non-added value tasks from the staff,” said Diba Aleagha, Operations & Ecommerce Manager for Decathlon Canada.
Looking for a solution that would help transform their in-store shopping experience and serve as an ecommerce hub for Western Canada, Decathlon, a global sporting goods store with 1,700 stores in more than 60 countries, needed the right, tech-forward solution to make their concept store a reality. “We are looking at the fact that retail needs to evolve,” said Craig Binch, Decathlon Canada Store Leader.
Located on the second floor of South Central Mall in Calgary, Bastian Solutions designed and integrated a storage and fulfillment system that was small, fast and flexible enough to accommodate in-store customer needs and ecommerce inventory. The microfulfillment system is primarily comprised of the AutoStore goods to person system, Bastian Solutions’ conveyor and Exacta intralogistics software. “They put a solution in that works. They made the process very simple for us. They made sure we had the best possible solution for our unique needs,” said Binch.
