After more than two years of construction, Puma’s new distribution center in Geiselwind, Germany, started to operate on Apr. 6. It will help the company to better fulfill its online orders, which have remained until now relatively low as compared to those of Adidas or Nike. With 480 shuttles navigating through more than 20 km of conveyors, the fully automated DC will gradually be able to process up to 74 million items per year, servicing consumers as well as wholesale partners all over Central Europe. A candidate for LEED-Gold certification, the logistics facility will be powered by green energy through a rain water utilization system. Its 14,000-square-meter green roof will be used by local beekeepers to make honey.
