Mobile robot maker Geekplus Technology Co. this week announced that German third-party logistics provider Bergler Industrieservices is using Geek+’s Picking and Put-away system at its logistics center in Erlensee, Germany.
To modernize its picking and put-away processes, Bergler opted for Geek+’s P-800 picking autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and sophisticated warehouse management system (WMS).
Bergler said its success is derived from providing top-quality logistics services, including order fulfillment and returns management, for German and international e-commerce customers. It said it offers services such as component assembly, quality control, packaging, and more in addition to handling typical fulfilment tasks.
Geek+ AMRs help 40 Bergler employees
Bergler said the automated order-picking system has been a great help for the 40 employees at the Erlensee warehouse who have been assembling, packing, and shipping many orders for e-commerce customers.
The third-party logistics provider's (3PL) employees are now front and center in both the inbound and outbound operations and enjoy much more comfortable conditions, the company said.
The P-800s bring the racks to the operator at the workstation, then return the racks to an optimized position. This saves countless hours that would otherwise be spent walking through the vast site, according to Bergler.
“We have greatly enjoyed working with Bergler to make this project a reality,” said Saverio Carella, sales director for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland at Geek+. “Together, we have achieved a modern logistics center that represents the best of what AMR technology and expertise have to offer. Bergler, their employees, and their customers all stand to benefit from this modernization.”
Thanks to the integration of advanced robotics technology, not only is picking faster, more comfortable, and more accurate, but storage density is also much higher, thanks to the AMRs’ low profile and modest space requirements, the company said. This allows Bergler more freedom to scale up their operations and expand their business horizons.
“The Geek+ robotics solution is something we have been looking forward to for some time now, and we’re thrilled with the results,” said Bergler CEO Raimund Bergler. “The picking robots allow us to embark on a new phase in our development and ensure that we continue to guarantee our customers an extremely high level of service.”
