Flying Tiger Copenhagen
LOGIA WMS manages Flying Tiger’s 60,000 sqm distribution center, which delivers goods to over 900 stores in 27 countries and to webshop customers.
Warehouse and logistics situation
Flying Tiger took over a fully automated distribution center in 2019, as the former manual warehouse had become too small. The new warehouse setup will ensure efficient and timely delivery of goods to both stores and webshop customers.
Fully automated with manual twist
The distribution center is equipped with an extensively automated system consisting of 11 pallet cranes, 6 mini-load cranes, automatic layer pickers, a sorting system, and an internal transport system that ties it all together. The number of transactions is high and the response time requirements for the automated system are high to ensure that pallets and packages are correctly guided around in a smooth and efficient flow. The warehouse also has manual storage areas, goods receiving, and a large shipping area.
The entire distribution center is managed by LOGIA, which ensures the best use of the automatic equipment, efficient processes in the manual warehouse and good integration between the storage areas.

Efficient order dispatch
LOGIA interfaces with Flying Tiger’s ERP system (MS Dynamics AX), so information about orders and inventory is constantly exchanged between the systems.
LOGIA initiates picking both from the manual storage areas and from the automated storage areas. Full pallets are automatically picked from the crane warehouse and packages are automatically picked to the transport system, where they are transported to the sorting facility, distributed to stores, and then palletized. All palletized goods are transported in assigned racks in the shipping area.
Order prioritization guided by distribution routes
Flying Tiger uses LOGIA’s route management function to manage and streamline the handling of orders for the company’s more than 900 stores in 27 countries and webshop customers. Order processing is managed and prioritized based on the carriers’ distribution routes – including pick-up times and drop-off locations on the routes. This determines when picking to the individual stores is initiated, as well as how the pre-packed orders are staged and loaded. This ensures that orders are packed and ready in the shipping area at the time of loading and that they do not take up space before they are shipped.
LOGIA also produces freight forecasts of the volume of shipments, which are sent to the relevant transport providers before collection.
