The company awarded inotec the identification project as a result of previous work it had successfully undertaken at the schuh warehouse and distribution centre in Scotland. The latest project was for schuh’s new 49,000 square foot warehouse and distribution centre in Ballycoolin, Dublin. This was opened on 2nd May and will serve schuh’s Irish and European customers. It is the footwear retailer’s third warehouse and distribution centre, the other two of its fulfilment centres are based in Scotland.
Commenting on the new warehouse and distribution centre, schuh’s warehouse manager, Davie Myint, said: This facility along with schuh’s real-time view of stock across our stores and website, will further increase our omnichannel capabilities, ensuring that all customers have access to products and benefit from best-in-class service.”
Dura-line marks 288 block stack locations
The latest inotec warehouse identification project at schuh’s new Dublin facility comprised of the marking out of 288 block stack locations using 800 metres of inotec’s highly durable ‘Dura-line’ line marking system. The system uses water-based acrylic paint applied to a shot blast prepared floor.
An ultraviolet clear topcoat is then cured onto the paint which gives high wear characteristics and allows the base paint to remain bright and visible for longer than traditional paint systems. This line marking system has the added benefit of drying within a very short period – under two hours – and has very little odour enabling warehouses to quickly return to full operation.
Market leading floor and racking bar code labels
Each of the block stack locations were labelled with inotec’s robust aluminium adhesive labels. These are the most durable adhesive floor barcode identification labels on the market.
The schuh warehouse project also included the installation of 2,136 of inotec’s barcoded racking labels. Commenting on the project schuh’s Warehouse manager, Davie Myint, who was responsible for the project said: “inotec’s warehouse identification products and line marking applications have stood the test of time at our warehouse and distribution centre in Scotland. The most recent inotec project undertaken at our Dublin warehouse was completed on time and to budget, with minimal distribution to our busy operations.”
