Hello EWM Community,


Recently fashion brand Hugo Boss went live with SAP Extended Warehouse Management for Fashion.

They have put out a press release about the success of this project. The press release is in German
so I’ve translated it to English for all of you.

The world’s leading Fashion Brand Hugo-Boss is live with the Focus Business Solution “EWM for
Fashion” at their fully automated warehouse for flat packed goods (DE:-Liegeware) in Filderstadt

near Stuttgart, Germany.

The Filderstadt Warehouse is the biggest Hugo Boss Warehouse in Europe and the most modern

built warehouse.With total investment of 100 Mio Euro in new building and automation equipment

etc the Warehouse was finished in time and in budget within 15 months from start in Summer 2012.

The warehouse offers a capacity of 35.000 sq.meter and 400.000 Cartons. The warehouse can ship upto
35 Mio. Fashion Articles across the Europe within 24-48 Hours. Daily on an average a workload of 40 Trucks

is catered to.

Ralf Schneider Director Global Logistics der HUGO BOSS AG explains “Orders can now be processed

in minutes thanks to the modern  technology. Earlier the warehouse employees had to walk long w

ays to pick the Articles; this is done by fully automated machines today.

Hugo Boss Runs their Warehouse with “EWM for Fashion Rel 1.0 ”, a Focused Business solution
developed by SAP Custom Development in co-innovation partnership with Hugo-Boss and on offering

since December 2012 for IS-AFS Customers.
