Asda, part of the Wal-Mart group, is one of the world’s largest grocery retailers.

The retailer has placed its second order with TGW Northern Europe for an automated materials handling solution to be installed at its latest Home Shopping Centre (HSC) located in Nottingham. This facility is the third HSC within Asda’s network and will benefit Asda’s outbound capacity.

TGW is delighted to have been selected by Asda as the preferred supplier for the next phase of the Home Shopping Centre roll out.

The solution at each facility includes a tote conveyor transportation and sorting system, and TGW “STINGRAY” technology providing a buffer store for the order totes and the sequenced delivery of the order totes to the despatch vehicle loading operation.
