Sector: Logistics and national and international shipping services
Established in 2012, Asendia is the result of the joint venture between La Poste and Swiss Post, and today it is one of the world's leading players in the international distribution of mail and parcels. Thanks to its expertise and logistics network, Asendia Italy can meet the needs of companies in e-commerce, Direct Marketing, Business Mail and Press & Publishing while at the same time offering integrated logistics solutions. The wide range of parcel services available is designed to improve the e-commerce experience of companies and their customers, wherever they are.
Asendia supports the supply chain of major brands as well as start-ups, managing the entire logistics process: goods storage and order preparation, product customisation, worldwide shipping including customs support, real-time inventory and returns management.
In order to be able to offer a more efficient and complete service, Asendia Italy decided to revolutionize its logistics processes, turning to automation to improve its daily activities and respond to a constantly evolving market in which flexibility is a key success factor. And all this should be achieved also by optimizing storage areas.
Asendia Italy chose Ferretto Group as its partner and guide in the transition to automation. The Vicenza-based company identified Vertimag as the most effective solution for the company’s specific requirements. The installation of automated vertical storage systems has made it possible to optimize the available space and improve flow and stock management thanks to automation, while at the same time guaranteeing high flexibility based on the characteristics of the items to be stored and the trends in demand. In addition, the exclusive Ergo-Tech bay ensures that picking operations can be carried out in a more precise, more ergonomic and faster way. All this has improved the quality of work, with an increase in productivity also due to the sliding console and the alphanumeric LED bar, and has also enhanced the general safety of operators and goods.
