“(AIRTRAX) Pocket has returned huge benefits in terms of reduced picking hours and increased productivity.”
Ingram Micro’s Business Unit Director, Maxim Hurkmans

Established in Amsterdam in 1870, de Bijenkorf has become one of the most renowned chain of high-end department stores in The Netherlands.

For its new DC in Woerden, de Bijenkorf required an innovative automated solution that offered a sortation capacity of up to 8,000 items per hour.
To fulfil this demand, Vanderlande delivered AIRTRAX Pocket – the first large-scale system of its kind in The Netherlands.

De Bijenkorf has since been able to maximise its use of space, reduce lead and transportation times, as well as improve its ability to handle stock.
