CJ Logistics has deployed 128 autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to upgrade operations at its distribution centre at Gunpo, South Korea. The centre serves Naver Shopping, the country’s leading e-commerce platform, handling 30,000 orders per day.
The third-party logistics company has once again tapped Geek+ to supply the AMRs, following the successful first deployment at CJ Logistics’ Dongtan distribution centre.
This latest project involves the rollout of 128 AMRs operating 24/7 and covering 8300sqm of allocated space within CJ Logistics' 10,000sqm warehouse. By integrating Geek+’s solutions into their WMS system, CJ Logistics have raised their operational efficiency by 33%.
“We are excited to use smart robots to improve our supply chain operations and increase our competitiveness. We're pleased to extend our partnership with Geek+ to our Gunpo warehouse after seeing the efficiency and accuracy improvements that Geek+'s technology has delivered in our Dongtan distribution centre,” said Kim Khunghoon, managing director, CJ Logistics.
Meanwhile, Geek+ has set up headquarters in Seoul to support its customers in the country. The new office is manned by a full team of commercial, project, and service engineers. Besides South Korea, Geek+ has offices in Mainland China, Hong Kong SAR, Singapore, and Japan.
Lit Fung, managing director for APAC, UK, and Americas at Geek+ said: "We are delighted that CJ Logistics have placed their faith in us to extend our already successful cooperation. We can't wait to see our robots give them flexibility, adaptability, and precision in dealing with the vigorous market growth. We believe there is a huge demand for AMR robots in South Korea, which is why we have set up a full team there to support the logistics upgrades facilitated by robotics & AI in the retail, e-commerce, and apparel sectors."
Geek+ will continue to work with CJ Logistics on a variety of projects to provide Korean businesses with the technology to improve their efficiency and reduce the costs of warehouse management in this ever-changing environment.
