TGW has announced that it will be implementing an automated warehouse solution at Adidas’ new logistics centre in Brazil.

The global sporting goods brand is investing in a modern logistics centre at its site in Embu das Artes near São Paulo from which it intends to serve the Brazilian market.

TGW has designed a unique picking system especially for Adidas at the centre. This will include a complex 2.1 kilometre conveyor network along with TGW Commander controls and an iWACS IT system to enable a continuous and high capacity material flow inside the distribution centre.

Diogo Figueiredo SCM Director at adidas in Brazil said, “Adidas is well recognised as one of the leading providers in the global sports goods market. Our expectation with TGW as partner is to increase our efficiencies in this highly competitive business.”

In addition to the physics and the software, TGW will also provide a Lifetime Service package offering spare parts and a two-year onsite maintenance contract including around the clock technical hotline services.

An official statement said: “adidas stands for high performance concerning sports, aiming at the best possible support for sports people to become better and feel well at the same time. Now, it is time for adidas to receive a high-performance logistics centre in Embu das Artes, Brazil, provided by the Austrian systems integrator TGW.

TGW Logistics Group is a worldwide leading systems provider of highly dynamic, automated and turn-key logistics solutions. Since 1969 the company has been implementing different internal logistics solutions, from small material handling applications to complex logistics centres.

With about 2,000 employees worldwide, the Group generated sales revenues of €371 million last year. www.tgw-group.com
