Mango, one of the leading fashion groups, has set up a highly automated multichannel distribution centre near Barcelona. The logistics hub currently replenishes more than 2,200 branches and online shop customers – not only in Spain and Europe, but all over the world. Austrian intralogistics specialist TGW was commissioned to design and execute the project.

A flexible solution helps the fashion retailer to prepare flat garments, hanging garments and accessories – and therefore the whole product range Mango offers.

Founded in 1984, Mango sells clothing, footwear, bags, and accessories – online as well as in over 2,200 stores. The Spanish company is present in more than 110 countries. With 15,000 employees Mango achieved a turnover of 2.2 billion euros. As a result of its growth in recent years, it has become necessary to consolidate its supply chain. In order to optimise delivery times and reduce logistics costs, Mango has opted for a central hub in the Catalan community of Lliça d´Amunt.

At the inbound zone, the cartons are received directly in containers or on pallets. The storage and order preparation zone consist of a miniload system with 44 aisles and a capacity of 850,000 cartons. In the picking zone, daily orders are prepared in cartons for flat garments and accessories. It comprises eight toting stations and a Stingray shuttle system. The latter consists of 14 aisles with 13 levels each to supply mono-reference cartons to TGW high-performance picking workstations.

Antonio Pascual, director Supply Chain at Mango, confirms: “We are taking the next step towards modernising our intralogistics system with this new distribution centre. This means that we will be able to continue to offer our customers the best possible service in the years ahead.”

David Bendien, CEO South Europe at TGW, adds: “The new solution is fully automated and combines both flexibility and dynamics with maximum control over each and every process. And all this at a modest total cost of ownership.”
