FRENCH transport giant Bollore Logistics has appointed Melbourne's Cohesio Group to implement an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) project, making it the first ever AMR implementation by a 3PL in Australia.
The project includes 28 AMR in Bollore Logistics' Sydney warehouse, facilitating the efficient delivery of luxury goods across various brands via multiple e-commerce platforms and retail outlets across Australia and New Zealand.
The AMR project reduces space cost through increasing storage density and minimising the operational cost through its efficient picking and high throughput.
The end-to-end data integration ensures faster and more accurate order fulfilment. With numerous luxury brands housed in a single location, and each brand having a unique product range, an error-proof system is vital. The AMR goods-to-person solution ensures higher accuracy compared to conventional picking methods.
'We've been impressed with the Cohesio partnership with Chinese robotics and AI providers, Geek+, and the collaboration meant that we could be first in the Australian and New Zealand market to introduce this particular innovative technology,' said Bollore Pacific logistics chief Frederic Parent.
Said Cohesio sales chief Tim Baracz: 'Typically a project of this nature can take several month but we were able to halve that time and deliver in four months.'
