E-Commerce Fulfillment

Votes: 34

Product or service description

We offer highly-automized B2C-fulfillment for webshops. With the help of AutoStore-systems, autonomous mobile robots, and automatic packing machines, we help companies reduce their capital expenditure by outsourcing their entire fulfillment process, from goods delivery and storage to shipment and returns. Our cutting-edge robotics, in turn, ensures an unbeatably low error-margin, leading to huge costs savings and improved customer satisfaction. With our multi-warehousing model across our five state of the art facilities on the European continent and in the UK, customers can store their stock at multiple locations, thereby optimizing the efficiency of their supply-chain by shortening the distance between each warehouse and the end-customer.

Distinction from the competition

The combination of the high degree of automation our facilities offer, the multi-warehousing model, and the fact that we do not use any plastic, filling material, and only FSC-certified cartons, means that fulfillment from Active Ants has the lowest carbon footprint in the industry.

Product or service innovations

In the past 12 months, we opened a brand-new facility in Northampton in the United Kingdom. This enables customers based on the European continent to reach British customers (and vice versa) quicker, cheaper, and greener than was previously the case, simultaneously offering new opportunities for growth on both sides of the English Channel. However, we are not stopping there – more facilities across Europe are in the works, and as part of the bpost-group, we are also able to offer storage on the North American continent.

Customer case study

Case study: Didriksons & Active Ants

The partnership between Active Ants and the iconic Swedish apparel company Didriksons keeps going from strength to strength.

In 2022, the Swedish company Didriksons, perhaps most famous for their stylish high-quality rain jackets and winter parkas, decided they needed a new logistics provider for their European B2C business. At the time, their main goal was to find a fulfillment partner able to support the brand’s rapid growth and international ambitions. Moreover, operational flexibility, fast execution, and an understanding of Didriksons’ needs and existing capabilities was a key concern.

After surveying the various contenders in the market, their decision fell on Active Ants.

Tishko Amen, Head of Warehouse Operations at Didriksons: “We chose Active Ants as they already worked with the biggest platforms in Europe and had a multiple-site solution across all European markets to handle key challenges like short lead times and height demands. We quickly realized that we as a brand can really make use of their experience and rely on their automated processes.”

As a result of the cooperation, customers across the EU are now able to order Didriksons’ classic looks directly from the firm’s website and enjoy fast, climate-friendly, and problem-free deliveries thanks to Active Ants’ unique automatized and robotized fulfillment solutions. Moreover, customers now also have the chance to purchase Didriksons’ products on the marketplaces Zalando and About You. To bring this about, Active Ants have demonstrated that it can fulfill the rigorous standards the marketplaces adhere to, and has assisted Didriksons throughout the various test-phases and adjusted existing IT-interfaces accordingly.

In 2023, the relationship expanded to the United Kingdom, from where Active Ants began servicing Didriksons’ British customers from its new facility in Northampton.
