Arvato Unveils Enhanced Automation at New China Distribution Center

Arvato Unveils Enhanced Automation at New China Distribution Center
Danny Gill

Arvato SCM Solutions has begun operations at a new China distribution center. The new multi-client facility in Shanghai is equipped with conveyors spanning across five floors, a pick-by-light system and various customized processing modules that feature hands-free scanners. Arvato had consolidated three of its existing Shanghai sites into the new facility.

“Enhanced automation, increased flexibility in processing lines with customized client specific setups are key characteristics of the new warehouse”, said Raoul Kuetemeier, Head of Asia at Arvato SCM Solutions. “We commit to highly-competitive efficiency and agility in our domestic distribution solutions. The new warehouse and technologies installed will support us in achieving these goals.”

Backed by Arvato’s IT backbone, processes such as picking and dispatch will be supported by semi-automatic technologies such as the newly upgraded pick-by-light system. This will allow Arvato to channel resources on more complex operations such as kitting, returns management and further value-added services. With the automation in place, capacity and flexibility that are critical to manage extreme peak volumes in China have also been enhanced.
