Axiom's Automated Solution for Lakeland

Axiom GB Stand: D23
Overview showing conveyors and box-sizing / closing machines.

Axiom's system helped Lakeland move away from a labour intensive manual process. The Lakeland mail order operation processes over 1.3 million orders per year. The orders received via an app, internet, phone or post. Replacing the manual system where picked product was packaged in one of eight sizes of box complete with infill, the automated right-sized box and lid automated system, not only reduced both the number of different box sizes and the amount of packaging, but increased throughput and reduced the number of lorries required for a given number of orders. 

Two sizes of auto-erected boxes are presented at each packing station to the operator.  The boxes have a licence plate barcode, which when picked is attributed to the order.  Via a controlled conveyor system, the filled and identified box feeds to a lidding machine which measures the product height and folds the excess card down before gluing a lid.  the lidded box is labelled with a shipping label before presenting for despatch.  Read the whole case study at

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”

  • '' It was a good show and quality is always better than a high number of tyres kickers . We have engaged with two potential customers with live projects that at this point are looking promising hence committing to IWLEX24.''

  • "At 51T we are really excited to be part of the inaugural Inside Warehouse Logistics exhibition. Having exhibited at other events we felt it was time for something new, in particular the original idea of having the industry shape the event. We're looking forward to meeting a new group of buyers and becoming part of the new IWLEX community."
