Robotics and warehouse automation company GreyOrange has begun rolling out its new cutting edge Linear Sorters in several locations across Asia.
Equipped with advanced software, these high-speed Linear Sorters will deliver the flexibility and scalability required by retail, FMCG, e-commerce and third-party logistics (3PL) operators to manage high volumes for e-commerce and omnichannel distribution.
Key locations include Saudi Arabia, India and the Philippines.
The new technology will be used to help companies cope with high shopping volumes over the next months.
This includes the ongoing festive season around Diwali in India and the world’s biggest ecommerce event – Singles Day held on November 11.
Logistics operators across Asia are expecting that the surge in volumes would follow through from the recent Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday sales at the end of November, and through the Christmas and year-end shopping season.
In Riyadh, a leading express courier company in Saudi Arabia has acquired the latest sortation system from GreyOrange for its customised configurations.
The automation will help the company to improve its productivity and efficiently managing parcels for distribution across the Middle East.
Faster fulfilment and reduced turnaround times
One of the world’s leading FMCG companies in India, has deployed a high-end GreyOrange sortation system at its distribution centre near Mumbai.
The company specialises in food, home care, personal care and refreshment products and numerous brands. The sorter will handle some of its categories including leading household brands. It will result in faster fulfilment and reduce turnaround times.
Another unique sortation system has been installed in a large distribution centre near Mumbai. It is mainly used as an order consolidation item sorter for fashion store retail distribution to over 1000 stores in India. This single sorter performs double duty sorting for both its inbound load as well as consolidating the outbound load.
Nalin Advani, CEO – Asia-Pacific, GreyOrange said: “The growth in e-commerce across Asia has taken many by surprise.
“With annual growth rates of 12-18% in many markets, e-commerce and third party logistics operations need sorters that can deliver the high performance they want in terms of throughput and the versatility of a scalable and responsive supply chain.”
In the Philippines, one of the country’s fastest growing logistics company that provides innovative solutions for e-commerce payments and deliveries, has installed a GreyOrange sortation system to handle its fast-growing volume of parcels.
At this central facility in Manila, the sorter will auto-sort the parcels for 480 destinations and hubs across the Philippines.
