Robotics and supply chain automation company, GreyOrange, has announced installations for the deployment of its Butler robotics system at three new sites, located in Japan and Europe.
The upcoming site in Japan is for Trusco Nakayama Corporation, a leading wholesale trading company specialising in machine tools and equipment for production sites, wholesale distributors and retailers. Its range of over 335,000 products includes over 2,300 brands and manufacturers.
A multinational technology company, GreyOrange is a market leader in AI-powered robotics systems for automation in warehouses, distribution and fulfilment centres. In recent years GreyOrange has rapidly expanded its presence across Asia-Pacific and the Americas and is now at the forefront of supply chain automation innovation, providing solutions for e-commerce, Retail, FMCG and logistics companies across the globe.
“These sites will deploy an advanced combination of robotics and Artificial Intelligence which will increase their efficiencies multifold,” Nalin Advani, CEO – APAC, GreyOrange said.
“GreyMatter, our warehouse execution software platform optimises large and complex operations in real-time. The Butler system was selected to improve productivity in distribution centres located where finding labour is a huge challenge,” he said.
GreyOrange has acquired marquee customers in Europe. These include a Global 3PL using the Butler system for one of its pan-European distribution operations in Benelux and a leading e-commerce platform for their regional Fulfilment Centre. Both have selected the Butler goods-to-person solution for its improvements in accuracy, flexibility and productivity. There is continued interest in GreyOrange robotics solutions among companies who seek to optimise their complex order fulfilment operations to achieve cost competitiveness and improved service levels to their customers.
“The Butler robotics solution offers a compelling business case as logistics managers look to improve productivity from end-to-end of their supply chain processes. We are also seeing more interest in using these solutions for larger warehouses and in our upcoming sites, we will deploy hundreds of robots each to handle significantly higher volumes in shorter turnaround times,” Dieter Berz-Voege, CEO – EMEA, GreyOrange said.
“The boom in e-commerce globally has resulted in many more businesses needing to manage same day order-to-dispatch times instead of next or more days for delivery,” he added.
