Magazino partners up with the British Footwear Association

Munich – Magazino is now a partner of the British Footwear Association (BFA). To kick off the partnership and promote a roadshow with the shoe box picking robot TORU in the UK, the German robotics company Magazino hosts a webinar together with the BFA and Zalando. The leading fashion platform Zalando uses the robots since 2018 and will provide insights in the webinar on how and why they integrate the fleet of TORU robots in their footwear operations.

In the joint webinar, hosted by the BFA on June 17, footwear and logistics companies have the chance to get into discussion with Magazino and Zalando to learn more about the robots and how they support logistics and fulfillment processes.
