E-Food: Farmy Switzerland Continues its Growth with Scallog Robots


E-Food: Farmy Switzerland Continues its Growth with Scallog Robots

The boom in e-food orders gives an ongoing boost to Farmy, the swiss online shop for regional and organic products. In the city of Winterthur, Farmy clients benefit from now on from free deliveries. Warehouse robots from Scallog support the order preparation specialists in the central logistics hub in Zurich. 

Farmy continues to increase its activities. Following a sales rise during the Covid lockdown, the order numbers keep on growing for the swiss company. Most clients that have realized an order for the first time last year got convinced by the high quality of Farmy products – even beyond the Covid period. The constant progression of the sales turnover confirms that consumers trust in the eFood shop.

Free deliveries in Winterthur region 

Farmy enlarges its cost-free shipment zone (Zone A).  Electrical vans supply customers as well in the Winterthur region with the ZIP codes 8400, 8404, 8405, 8406 and 8408. This area is principally without delivery fees.

Support by Scallog robots in the warehouse

The skyrocketing orders require more storage capacities. In order to obtain a densification of the available warehouse space, Farmy has opted for Scallog’s solution. Since spring 2021, the eFood company is assisted by robots in its central HUB in Zurich. Scallog proposes an efficient and innovative goods-to-person system. This solution permits automation in the warehouse zone for dry products with long conservation duration.

In a conventional warehouse, employees have to walk many kilometers to pick an article. In Farmy’s hub, from now on Scallog robots are executing this task. They transport mobile shelves with products to the order preparation specialists. This principle allows a densification of the existing storage space and an important easing concerning the physical work of the warehouse staff. Thus, Scallog enhances ergonomy and security for warehouse employees.

Each morning, fresh products – vegetables and fruits, meat and dairy products  – are delivered by local producers that are partners of Farmy. The packaging of these products is realized manually.
