Perfumery El Nino invests in a robotic warehouse.

El Nino’s brand-new warehouse features an AutoStore solution, implemented by Element Logic. The warehouse opened in Nová Paka, Czech Republic in 2022, with a total area of over 8,000 m2, and accommodates goods from all three previous El Nino warehouses. By automating their warehouse, El Nino has improved their picking efficiency by up to 50% and ensures a smoother process for handling orders throughout the day.

The solution has been implemented successfully and will enhance El Nino’s existing capabilities. The new warehouse at El Nino is now fully operational.

“Our goal was to find a solution that would improve the efficiency of El Nino’s existing capabilities. After a thorough analysis, we proposed the best option was to move the entire storage system from three halls to one robotic and automated hall,” says Jindřich Kadeřávek, Managing Director at Element Logic Czech Republic.

The completion of this project represents a significant milestone in El Nino’s efforts to streamline its operations and improve overall efficiency.

Increasing the number of picked orders

The AutoStore solution at El Nino’s new warehouse will accommodate 40,000 bins and is serviced by 58 robots in the first phase. It also includes 9 carousel ports for storage and picking.

“The installation of AutoStore has resulted in a smoother process for dispatching individual orders and easier planning of human resources during anticipated seasonal increases. In times of low unemployment, El Nino can efficiently cover these peaks with minimal cost.”, says Zdeněk Augusta, COO of El Nino.

By deploying the automated storage system, El Nino expects to increase the number of picked orders. Additionally, the future capacity and performance expansion will be simple, modular, and without operational limitations with the AutoStore system.

El Nino specializes in selling hundreds of perfumes and cosmetic brands that are delivered throughout Europe. The company dispatches tens of thousands of orders every day, which are delivered to their customers as quickly as possible. Despite the increase in orders, Zdeněk Augusta assures that El Nino will continue to provide their customers with the very high standard they are accustomed to.
