Arvato SCM Solutions have agreed on a new fulfillment partnership with German-based ECOVACS Robotics, one of the world’s leading home robotic appliances manufacturer.

As part of this new agreement, Arvato will be responsible for the full scope of warehousing and distribution processes of ECOVACS robots and accessories throughout the EMEA region.

Arvato has developed a new transport management system for this project which enables all inbound and outbound shipments to be managed and billed carrier-neutrally. Operations will be managed from Arvato’s 75,000 square meter logistics facility in the German town of Dueren (North Rhine-Westphalia).

General Manager of ECOVACS Europe, Andreas Wahlich explained, “For our growth in Europe, we needed a partner with experience in retailing, covering specific retail requirements, while at the same time providing a high level of system automation as well as efficiency through scalable structures.”

ECOVACS Robotics ranks number two in terms of market share in the highly competitive European market for home robotic appliances, however, they are the market leader in their home country of China and the entire Asia-Pacific region.

Arvato SCM Solutions Director for Account Management Hightech & Entertainment, Dennis Schmitz stated, “We started with several central European countries as well as some third-party countries like Switzerland and Ukraine.”

He further stated that he expects a first-year output of approximately 300,000 units with continued growth projected for the following years.

Arvato SCM Solutions Executive Vice President for Hightech & Entertainment, Thomas Becker said, “ECOVACS is a client with high growth potential and active in the fast-evolving robotics market – a target industry that is also a part of our growth strategy,”

He concluded with the following, “Here we can leverage one of our strengths, focusing on standardized and efficient processes in highly complex retail environments.”
