75% of Babyshop Group’s products fit in the Warehouse automation which is powered by 120 electric motor robots. Our orders from the auto storage are packed into carton boxes or bags. The boxes are managed by a fully automated system where the goods are packed in recyclable cartons that optimizes the size of the box to the content so that little to no extra air needs to be shipped with the boxes. Since we changed to the optimized boxes, the size of the boxes has decreased on average by 25%. This reduction leads to lower emissions and less cost. The paper, both in bags and box are made from 70-100% recycled material and is 100% recyclable. Another benefit with fitting the box size to the goods, is that there is no use for extra padding to keep the products from moving around in the box during shipping. If possible, an order is packed into a bag. At the end of 2020 BSG transitioned from plastic into paper bags and are only shipping in paper bags from 2021 and forward. The benefit of the paper bag is to reduce the use of single use plastic and plastic waste. The items that are outside of our automatic storage are usually shipped in their product package box or repacked at the warehouse so that the item is not damaged during shipment.
Our 43,000 m2 warehouse is located in the center of Sweden, just south of Jönköping.
