Founded in France in 1976, Decathlon is a professional sports goods retailer specializing in the mass sports market, integrating the entire production chain of sports product design, R&D, production, branding, logistics, and retail. With over 1500 stores in 49 countries, it is the largest sporting goods retailer in the world.
New customer expectations for e-commerce – higher volumes of orders and returns, same- and next-day delivery, and nearly perfect accuracy – have brought
new challenges for retailers and a need to address logistics bottlenecks. With 1045 stores in 25 European countries, Decathlon requires a highly flexible and fast supply chain and has turned to Geek+’s goods-to-person solutions to optimize its B2C logistics.
Geek+ tailor-made new robotics solutions for three distribution centers located in Castelnau, France,
Łódź, Poland, and Campania, Italy, use hundreds of P-series picking robots. Unlike traditional infrastructure, the AMR systems allow for flexible maintenance and modification without any interruption of service.
