CEVA Logistics and Geek+ are teaming up to connect consumers more efficiently with their favourite footwear and apparel through autonomous mobile robots (AMR).
The modernization efforts at CEVA’s Grobbendonk warehouse, located in Belgium’s Antwerp province, clearly demonstrate the benefits of AMRs through delivering a more ergonomic working environment and improving efficiency, all while maintaining accuracy.
The warehouse now has a fleet of 27 Geek+ P-series picking robots and five workstations. The picking robots feature a 1,000-kilogram payload and operate at a maximum speed of 2 m/sec. The goods-to-person solution devised by CEVA and Geek+ provides great flexibility and quick integration into the existing operations. It can handle daily volumes of more than 10,000 outbound items.
The Grobbendonk project represents the latest collaboration between Geek+ and CEVA Logistics. In 2021, Geek+ robots were introduced in certain automated operations at a CEVA warehouse in Australia, one of the largest distribution centres in the southern hemisphere. The Grobbendonk site applies those previous successes to online retail operations in Europe, including creating safe working conditions for warehouse staff.
Jean Gateau, Global Key Account Director at Geek+, 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 fantastic that we can reproduce that in Europe, too.”
Bart Beeks, Global Head of Contract Logistics at CEVA Logistics, said: “At CEVA, we define innovation as implementing new ideas with business impact. As a result, we are always looking for the best solutions for our clients, scanning the technology horizon alongside our partners. The Geek+ solution is a great fit for our operation in Grobbendonk, providing a more comfortable working environment for on-site employees while at the same time handling a far greater order volume.”
