Abercrombie & Fitch upgrades distribution
Fashion retailer Abercrombie & Fitch is opening a new high tech 715,000-square-foot distribution centre in the US
The Arizona facility being opened with GXO will serve as Abercrombie & Fitch’s new hub for its West Coast operations when it becomes fully operational in late 2021.
It will feature advanced automation, including goods-to-person robots that help teammates increase productivity and improve safety.
Intelligent analytics, including AI and machine learning, will also be deployed at the site to deliver fast, efficient distribution of products to customers.
Larry Grischow, SVO of supply chain and procurement at Abercrombie & Fitch, said: “We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with GXO, as the company shares both our dedication to the West Coast market and our commitment to leading-edge logistics innovation.”
