A diverse product range requires expertise of a special kind
Czech haberdashery store STOKLASA trusts the broad product portfolio of Wanzl.
Stylish fashion accessories, fine fabrics, colourful decorations, modern costume jewellery and a wide range of crafting accessories: the Czech company STOKLASA stocks 43,000 haberdashery, fabric and fashion accessory items. The wholesaler and retailer is a Top 100 company in the Czech Republic and has a network of 13 branches in six locations. The diverse product range poses special challenges for the warehouse equipment in Bolatice (CZ), which is why STOKLASA has trusted the broad product portfolio of logistics expert Wanzl CZ since 2018.
Based on STOKLASA’s plan for a new merchandise management and ordering system, Wanzl has recommended the right equipment with which these expectations can be realised. The goal was to give customers a better overview of the availability of various articles and allow faster processing of orders. A wide range from Wanzl’s Material Handling division was used for the warehouse equipment, including many tried-and-tested standard products. As these already met all the warehousing criteria almost perfectly, barely any modifications were necessary. STOKLASA uses the reliable pallet systems from Wanzl that are ideal for the storage of light, large volume items such as polystyrene balls, filling material or rolled up blankets. Only the height of the pallet bars had to be adapted for the storage of fabric rolls.
In addition, STOKLASA uses the robust and easily manoeuvrable RC/N3 roll cages and the KT3 order picking trolleys for the transport of goods. The KT3 order picking trolleys were additionally fitted with durable castors with a wide polyurethane tread to ensure easy handling on grid flooring. Efficient transport trolleys are also used for the smooth storage and retrieval of medium-sized goods or containers. Furthermore, mobile workstations make it easier to carry out inventory tasks on-site. Finally, ram protection bars protect the valuable new warehouse equipment from damage. CEO Leo Stoklasa is visibly impressed: “The collaboration with Wanzl is excellent and the sales staff always find just the right solution. We have outfitted the warehouse based on their recommendations and the elements used have proven to be highly successful in practice”. For this reason Wanzl and STOKLASA will continue to work closely together in the future.
