Notino business park in Telgate built by AKNO Group

We are in the province of Bergamo, one of Italy’s most important provinces from an economic point of view, in the heart of Lombardy. Today we are talking about the Notino warehouse in Telgate, which represents a benchmark for innovation in the warehouse logistics sector. This hub, developed by AKNO Group, stands out for its adoption of cutting-edge technology and its ability to efficiently respond to the needs of the rapidly evolving e-commerce market. The decision to locate the warehouse in AKNO Telgate’s business park is not random, but responds to a strategy aimed at optimising logistics flows, which is fundamental to guaranteeing rapid and customised deliveries to Notino‘s customers.


The importance of innovation and automation in modern logistics

The digital age has radically transformed the logistics sector, making innovation and automation no longer optional, but necessary. Notino’s intelligent warehouse in Telgate is a concrete example of how technology can be used to improve operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. Thanks to AKNO Group design, the warehouse uses automated systems for stock management and order preparation, reducing the margin of error and waiting times to a minimum.


AKNO Group’s role in logistics warehouse design

AKNO Group played a crucial role in the construction of Notino’s warehouse in Telgate, once again demonstrating its design expertise. The collaboration between Notino and AKNO Group is a virtuous example of how the synergy between e-commerce and warehouse logistics expertise can generate added value for companies and their customers.

The Notino warehouse in Telgate, with its focus on innovation and efficiency, is a role model for the future of logistics in the e-commerce sector. The partnership with AKNO Group has made it possible to create a logistics hub that not only meets current market requirements, but is also ready to adapt to future challenges in the sector.


Logistical challenges in the beauty e-commerce sector

The e-commerce beauty sector, with its rapid growth and wide range of product offerings, faces unprecedented logistical challenges. Efficient management of logistics flows becomes crucial to maintaining market competitiveness. Companies are faced with the complexity of managing thousands of references, while ensuring fast delivery and maximum customer satisfaction.


The need to reduce time to market

In a market characterised by high competition and increasingly demanding consumers, the ability to reduce time to market becomes a key success factor. Companies are forced to review their logistics strategies to speed up their shipping and delivery processes, reducing waiting times for the end customer.


Managing exponential growth in sales volumes

The explosion of online sales, particularly in the post-pandemic period, has led to an exponential increase in sales volumes. This increase has put existing logistics systems under pressure, highlighting the need for innovative solutions to effectively manage warehouse flows and ensure scalability of operations.

In this context, companies are faced with complex problems that require a strategic approach and the adoption of advanced technologies to optimise warehouse logistics. The challenge is to turn potential obstacles into growth opportunities, making the best use of available resources and anticipating market needs.


Impact of the pandemic on purchasing habits and logistics

The COVID-19 pandemic has exponentially accelerated the transition to e-commerce, radically changing consumers’ purchasing habits. This change has generated unprecedented pressure on logistics systems, requiring rapid adaptability to handle the increased volumes of online orders. Warehouse logistics faced the challenge of maintaining smooth operations despite global supply chain restrictions and disruptions.


The complexity of managing a wide range of products

The beauty sector, characterised by a vast assortment of products, made inventory management and order preparation particularly complex. The diversity of product sizes, shapes and storage requirements has imposed the need for highly sophisticated logistics solutions. The efficient management of these logistical flows requires advanced intelligent warehouse systems capable of optimising storage and picking in a precise and timely manner.


The pressure of seasonal peaks and the Christmas super peak

Peak season periods, in particular the Christmas super peak, present an additional challenge for e-commerce logistics. During these periods, order volumes can increase dramatically, putting a strain on the operational capacity of warehouses. The need to ensure on-time deliveries, even under extreme workload conditions, requires careful planning and the use of state-of-the-art logistics technology.

In this scenario, the ability to quickly adapt to fluctuations in demand and effectively manage logistics flows becomes essential to ensure service continuity and customer satisfaction. The complexity and pressure resulting from these factors amplify the problems already existing in the e-commerce logistics sector, highlighting the need for innovative and scalable solutions.


Creation of a dedicated logistics hub for Southern Europe

The implementation of a dedicated logistics hub for Southern Europe, strategically located in AKNO Telgate‘s business park, was Notino‘s breakthrough in meeting the logistics challenges amplified by the exponential growth of beauty e-commerce. This decision made it possible to centralise operations, optimising logistics flows and ensuring more efficient management of increasing sales volumes.
