CEVA Logistics has signed a multi-year contract extension to continue providing fulfilment services to ASOS at the online retailer’s 80,000 sq m warehouse in Großbeeren, Germany. The fulfilment centre has a capacity to store over 25m items and ships orders to ASOS customers in 62 countries.
CEVA Logistics, previously through Ingram Micro’s Commerce & Lifecycle Services business, and ASOS started working together at the site in 2014. Under the contract, CEVA Logistics will handle inbound, warehousing, e-commerce fulfilment and outbound services from the dedicated warehouse, which is strategically located near the hubs of major European parcel carriers. The contract extension runs into 2027.
CEVA Logistics employs approximately 3,300 people at the Großbeeren facility, working in three shifts, six days a week. The fulfilment centre is almost fully automated and features fulfilment technology such as automated inbound processing, automated storage and retrieval, goods-to-person stations, pocket sorters, induct stations, an additional parcel sorter, a dynamic buffer and an extensive network of conveyors. CEVA’s experts monitor the end-to-end operations from a dedicated control room. These innovations allow CEVA and ASOS to significantly accelerate fulfillment times while optimizing working conditions for employees.
