Lyko plans to expand its distribution to three other European markets, making deliveries from the same logistics center in Vansbro, Sweden. It is therefore necessary to maximize warehouse capacity and expand the high performance conveyor technology. SSI Schaefer will install an automation solution with state-of-the-art technology for short throughput times and expand all functional areas – picking, packaging, storage, and shipping. The existing shuttle system will double to 45,000 storage locations and 150 shuttles. In addition to the automated solution, SSI Schaefer will integrate a platform and three storage lifts for the storage of small and medium-sized items.

The expansion is scheduled for completion before Black Friday 2021.
