Geek+ launched Sky-Storage & Ground-Pick, a multi-level storage and retrieval system that uses Geek+’s X-series four-way shuttle robots to boost storage density while devoting the ground floor to picking operations entrusted to the flagship P800 robots.
“When it comes to getting the most out of the warehouse space available, traditional warehousing systems are no longer up to the task. With Sky-Storage & Ground-Pick, businesses have the solution to tackle challenges like labor shortages and increasing costs of warehouse space and deliver the level of service their customers expect,” says Kai Liu, Geek+ co-founder and VP of picking and smart warehouse. “Our R&D team is dedicated to providing the most effective solutions to retailers’ warehouse pain points. Our approach has been to study our goods-to-person installations worldwide and conduct in-depth discussions with customers to further innovate in the space and develop the products that can fit their more complex needs. Goods-to-person is just the tip of the iceberg for what AMRs can provide to warehouse logistics. Geek+ intends to continue to set the innovation pace in the industry.”
From PR Newswire:
- On the upper levels of the warehouse, the four-way shuttles utilize every inch of vertical space for pallet storage and quick and flexible replenishment of the lower level. Below them, picking robots move shelves, pallets and racks containing the most in-demand goods. Businesses can easily add or remove robots from the system according to business fluctuations, seamlessly expanding storage to fit demand. Existing infrastructure such as conveyor belts, robotic arms, or automatic lifts can be integrated into the system for receiving and/or distributing goods.
- On the ground level, the P800 provides high-speed picking and intelligent algorithms combined with quick full-pallet put-away improve the rationality of operations. Efficiency of both tote and piece picking is increased by 2-3 times.
- Given its power to transform the largest warehouses into dense and highly efficient storage and distribution facilities, Sky-Storage & Ground-Pick is an ideal solution to automate operations in retail, third-party logistics, manufacturing, cold chain and pharmaceutical distribution, among other industries.
