GROBBENDONK, Belgium, March 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA Logistics and Geek team up to more efficiently connect consumers to their favorite footwear and clothing using autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
Modernization efforts at CEVA's Grobbendonk warehouse, located in the Belgian province of Antwerp, clearly demonstrate the benefits of AMRs by offering a more ergonomic work environment and improving efficiency, all while maintaining accuracy.
The warehouse is now equipped with a fleet of 27 Geek P-series picking robots and five workstations. The picking robots have a payload of 1,000 kg and work at a maximum speed of 2 m/sec. The "goods-to-person" solution devised by CEVA and Geek offers a high degree of flexibility, quick integration into existing operations and can handle daily volumes of more than 10,000 outgoing items.
The Grobbendonk project represents the latest collaboration between Geek and CEVA Logistics. In 2021, Geek robots were introduced to select automated operations at a CEVA warehouse in Australia, one of the largest distribution centers in the southern hemisphere. The Grobbendonk center applies those previous successes to online retail operations in Europe, including creating safe working conditions for warehouse staff.
Jean Gateau, Geek Global Key Account Director, said: "This project with CEVA once again demonstrates what Geek can do for retail operations and warehouse operators. We have already had great success with CEVA in Australia, and It's great that we can replicate it in Europe as well."
Bart Beeks, Global Director of Contract Logistics at CEVA Logistics, said: "At CEVA, we define innovation as the application of new ideas with business impact. Consequently, we are always looking for the best solutions for our clients, exploring the technological horizon Together with our partners, the Geek solution is a perfect fit for our Grobbendonk operations, providing a more comfortable working environment for on-site employees, while handling a much higher volume of orders."
