CEVA Logistics deploys Geek+ picking robots at Melbourne warehouse

LinkedIn +

Third-party logistics (3PL) provider CEVA Logistics has completed the installation of autonomous mobile robots (AMR) from Geek+ at its warehouse in Truganina, Melbourne.

Implemented by Körber Supply Chain, the Geek+ AMRs move mobile inventory racks and pallets to picking stations, saving employees time that would otherwise be spent walking around the 500,000m2  warehouse finding and picking inventory.

Lit Fung, managing director for APAC, UK and Americas at Geek+, said, “The accelerated demand for fast order fulfillment has created a challenging scenario for businesses everywhere. In Australia, a booming e-commerce landscape has made ‘delivery services’ the determining factor of who’s going to come out on top. Using smart robot automation, CEVA has turned a challenge into an opportunity that will allow them to set the standard and gain considerable advantages.”

Milton Pimenta, CEVA Logistics’ managing director for Australia and New Zealand, added, “Thanks to Geek+’s AMR technology, we now have a very fast and efficient picking productivity and throughput solution.”

Following the project’s implementation, CEVA saw an immediate improvement in key performance indicators, most notably a fourfold increase in picking efficiency.

Ravi Nath, head of automated solutions for Australia and New Zealand at Körber Supply Chain, said, “CEVA feel that a number of their clients could benefit from AMR technology. As this was the first pilot project for the business, it was extremely important that we delivered on our predictions.”
