WARSAW, DECEMBER 6, 2018 // Zalando – Europe’s leading online fashion and lifestyle platform, officially opened its fulfillment center in Szczecin, Poland. The full ramp-up marks an important step in serving the growing customer base that currently measures over 25 million across the 17 markets Zalando operates in.

Measuring 130,000 sqm, the fulfillment center in Szczecin is one of the biggest sites in Poland, housing cutting-edge intralogistics solutions. For example, two five-story high “pick towers” that store several million items at once. High standards in automation are reached with, for example, four sorters named “Optimus Sorters,” that sort items to the respective order. The center is managed by the external provider “FIEGE,” which already employs around 1,000 people for the operational work of the center. The site will be handling orders mainly from Poland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Nordic countries.

The construction work of the fulfillment center started in August 2016, with the first parcel sent from the site end of last year. The fulfillment center supported Zalando’s logistic network during the record-breaking Black Friday 2018.

Zalando’s logistics network continues to grow in step with the overall company growth. The newly opened site in Szczecin joins the Zalando logistics network, which will soon number eleven fulfillment centers in five countries. Two further fulfillment centers near Łódź and Olsztynek for Zalando Lounge are planned to start operations in 2019.
