Hugo Boss is expanding its distribution centre for flat-packed goods in Filderstadt-Bonlanden near Stuttgart, Germany to further support the execution of its ‘Claim 5’ growth strategy.
The company is investing more than €100 million in the expansion project, with a focus on digitalisation and automation of processes, and the development of robotics solutions.The new building will increase shipping as well as storage capacity by around 75 per cent, thus creating the basis for up to 300 additional jobs. The expansion is scheduled for completion in 2026, Hugo Boss said in a media release.
The company inaugurated the central distribution centre for Europe in Filderstadt in 2014. Currently more than 35 million units per year are shipped by around 350 employees to customers all over Europe, with the storage capacity being around 400,000 bin locations.“
“Hugo Boss has grown strongly across all brands, regions, and distribution channels in recent quarters, our brand refresh as part of our ‘Claim 5’ growth strategy has been enthusiastically received by customers worldwide. We are now creating additional capacity in our state-of-the-art logistics centre so that we can continue to deliver the increased order volume quickly and reliably in the future. With this investment, we will further optimise the efficiency of our warehousing operations, and once again set new standards in logistics in Europe,” said Daniel Grieder, CEO of Hugo Boss.
