Challenges

Ariat International was seeking a solution to mitigate issues of labor inefficiencies and facility optimization to improve the end customer experience.

  • Physically demanding and strenuous work for associates
  • Inefficiencies due to manual processes and high SKU velocity

Solutions implemented

Already being a trusted partner, Körber is further driving Ariat's supply chain vision with autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) in collaboration with one of the global AMR leader Geek+.

  • Integrate 88 AMRs in Ariat International's 1 million sq. ft warehouse
  • Implement K. Motion Warehouse Advantage
  • Install 2,000 racks

Benefits

Since the roll out of WMS and the 88 AMRs, Ariat International has seen an increase in associate and overall facility productivity, leading to improved end-customer experience. Additional benefits include:

  • 82% decrease in associate walking
  • 100% increase in associates’ productivity
  • Morale boosting – staff see that the robots are something to help them, rather than replace them
  • Simplified training – ease of use has decreased training from weeks to less than one day
