Business Cases

With Scallog’s robotic solution, Decathlon Belgium is turning its logistics into a key link for customer satisfaction.


The logistic and warehouse performance of the company is placed on the omnichannel services. This is a key factor to ensure customer satisfaction.

Faced to a range expansion and the strong growth of E-commerce, Decathlon uses the Goods to Man Scallog solution to optimize :

  • storage
  • order preparation
  • returns of small items

The goal ? Reduce the "Lead Time" of the warehouse in order to keep the E-commerce customer commitment of a 48-hour delivery, and ultimately intend to cut down to 24 hours.


Founded in 1976, Decathlon is a French company designing and distributing products dedicated to sports.

The brand has a foothold in 55 countries, including Belgium.

To fulfill its commitment to providing quality service and optimising the customer experience, Decathlon Belgium opted to upgrade its warehouse via robotics. A decision that reflects the company’s pioneering spirit.


Thibaut Desmaret, Logistics Team Leader at Decathlon Belgium:

"The collaborative process with Scallog was easy and seamless. We capitalised on experiences at other Decathlon logistics sites already equipped with Scallog to incorporate best practices and keep an eye on aspects that require particular care, such as floor evenness."

As a pioneer in Goods-to-Man robotisation, the 3PL company Soditra Logistic stands out through its high performance and service levels.

As Alain Collard, CEO of Belgian company BRICOLUX, explains :

"We saw Scallog’s robotic Goods-to-Man solution as being the most effective, efficient, and pragmatic way of upgrading our logistics and continuing to grow.
Small and medium-sized businesses often wrongly assume that robots are inaccessible, because they are expensive and complex to roll out. Our work in this area proves the opposite is true.
