Kardex, an automated storage and retrieval system manufacturer, unveiled its new FullfillX system at MODEX 2024.

The warehouse execution system (WES) was specially designed by automation engineers to maximize the capabilities of AutoStore robotic cube storage systems and deliver a fast order fulfillment offering. 

Kardex and AutoStore partnership

AutoStore powered by Kardex allows new systems to ramp up faster and takes the unexpected surprises out of go-live, with systems capable of meeting or exceeding business cases in as little as 6 months, according to the companies.

“It was great to be able to demonstrate the capabilities of our portfolio of automation solutions at MODEX 2024, including Kardex FulFillX for AutoStore,” said Mitch Hayes, president of Kardex Solutions, AutoStore.

The flexible FulfillX is designed to optimize picking and packing, maximizing the capabilities of AutoStore to complete orders for fulfillment while also streamlining putaway and other inventory processes.

With Kardex FulfillX, users get a real-time overview of their whole operation, viewing and managing work in a simple window, receiving downtime estimates and rapidly deploying enhancements, supported by Kardex’s dedicated AutoStore support team. 

Cutter & Buck harnesses the power of AutoStore with FulfillX

With retail customers becoming more demanding when it comes to delivery times and efficient order fulfillment, conventional solutions are falling behind. The companies say they can ramp up FullfillX to full capacity in as little as six months.

Clothing retailer Cutter & Buck turned to FullfillX to rework its omnichannel business. The company needed a system to help it handle rising online and bricks-and-mortar sales, and growing inventory levels. The company opted to install an AutoStore system with Kardex FulfillX at its site in Renton, Wash.

“MODEX 2024 was also the ideal opportunity to showcase the real-world success leading apparel company Cutter & Buck has had in North America with FulFillX,” Hayes added.

The speed and density of the AutoStore robotic cube offering and the FulfillX focused ‘pick to pack’ product was ideal for Cutter & Buck’s existing fulfillment center near Seattle.

“We are delighted to work in partnership with Kardex on its innovative FulfillX warehouse execution system,” said Matt Savoie, partner sales manager at AutoStore. “AutoStore solutions are built for the future and Kardex has successfully pushed the boundaries of what cube storage can achieve to deliver the fastest order fulfilment system per square foot on the market.”
