Leroy Merlin is part of the ADEO Group, which ranks first in Europe (and third in the world) as a supplier to DIY outlets. It has 464 stores in 12 countries, offering customers a wide range of quality products in the home, interior, building materials, repairs and garden segments. Vanderlande’s innovative ADAPTO system is facilitating Leroy Merlin’s rapid growth, with even quicker delivery of goods to hypermarkets, as well as efficiently managing the growing volume of online orders.
The Vanderlande solution consists of pallet infeeds and outfeeds together with palletising, de-palletising and clearing workstations with operator positions. Two ADAPTO modules complete the solution with a total system capacity of 7,400 trays inbound and 7,400 trays outbound per hour. A total of approximately 75,000 storage locations are integrated within the highly automated solution, which is controlled by Vanderlande’s VISION software. The new warehouse commenced operations in May 2021.
