Magazino has secured an order from Schuurman Schoenen for its TORU mobile picking robot. The Dutch company, known for offering a wide range of shoes, will use the robots in its warehouse in Neede, Netherlands. By using the TORU robot, Schuurman Schoenen is implementing flexible automation for the manual picking process of shoeboxes.
TORU works autonomously with the help of 3D camera technology and numerous sensors and can operate 24/7. It can also be easily implemented in Inbound and Outbound processes. TORU robots reduce the typical order peaks in e-commerce and improves order lead times to customers by being able to operate also during nights or weekends.
Arjan Schuurman, CEO of Schuurman Schoenen, says: “With the Magazino robot solution TORU, we found a flexible solution to secure our growth and services in the next years in a very competitive market.”
Julia Scholz, sales director at Magazino, says: “With the TORUs, Schuurman Schoenen has a solution to scale the fleet according to their growth and increase the availability of services to their customers.”
One of the key advantages of TORU is the ability to be integrated into the existing warehouse environment in Neede with only minimal modifications.
TORU can support the employees in less ergonomic tasks, for example when picking from the bottom or top shelf or in particularly long walking distances in the warehouse.
Schuurman Schoenen is known in the Netherlands as a leading shoe retailer with 45 shops and an e-commerce website. Schuurman started with a small shop in Borculo in the 1950s, and it has expanded over the years, thanks to the efforts of three generations of the Schuurman family. In addition to various brands, it also has its own labels.
