“At Swisslog, we work closely with our customers to identify which automation technology best meets their operational needs and business objectives,” said Markus Schmidt, president of Swisslog Logistics Automation, Americas. “This highly effective virtual experience is an excellent way to allow more supply chain executives an opportunity to experience, first-hand, how a robotic, data-driven automation solution provides the efficiency and flexibility needed for e-commerce fulfillment.”
Automated micro-fulfillment centers are a simple and compact last-mile delivery solution that can be placed anywhere, especially where real estate space is limited or cost-prohibitive, to bring fulfillment closer to consumers. While micro-fulfillment centers can be a broad omnichannel supply chain solution, they have shown to be an ideal solution for streamlining e-grocery fulfillment.
As part of PromatDX educational seminars, Swisslog is also helping attendees understand how micro-fulfillment centers are quickly becoming an essential part of the supply chain. During the session, “Deploying Micro-fulfillment for Macro Results,” Swisslog’s Colman Roche, vice president of consulting and sales, will provide insight on the role of automation in next generation supply chains and highlight some of the promising technologies that are improving order fulfillment processes.
Swisslog automation experts are participating in two additional educational sessions during ProMatDX. “Determining Which AS/RS is Best for Your Application” shares the data and business requirements that should be considered when evaluating and selecting an ASRS solution. “How to Calculate AS/RS ROI” looks at factors to include when creating an ROI for AS/RS automation and highlights those often overlooked.
