Australia’s first use of robotics
in high-end retail

Bolloré Logistics is a global company offering end to end supply chain solutions to clients including air & ocean freight, ground & cross border, customs brokerage, regional and local distribution centers and eCommerce.

Industry: Third Party Logistics (3PL)
Location: Sydney, Australia

Challenges

Bolloré Logistics was seeking an innovative solution to improve the efficiency of its customer’s operation and the experience for the end users. This meant:

  • Reduced storage usage
  • Limited timeline for completion
  • Increasing accuracy

Solutions implemented

After a thorough consultation with Körber, Bolloré Logistics decided to:

  • Integrate 28 Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) in Bolloré Logistics’ Sydney warehouse
  • Adding active pick faces
  • Integration of end to end data

Benefits

Since roll out of the 28 AMRs, Bolloré Logistics has seen faster and more accurate order fulfilment. Additional benefits include:

  • Increased storage density
  • More than 360 picks per hour, per pick station
  • Up to 4,000 mixed eCommerce and retail orderliness processed per day

The Story

When approached by a high-end Australian retailer to develop a new retail processing system, Bolloré Logistics had a limited timeline to work with. Körber stood out to Bolloré because Geek+ has experience with high-end consumer brands, Bolloré was familiar with Körber’s AMR solutions, and the Körber team were willing to work in the short timeframe. Körber launched 28 AMRs in Bolloré's Sydney warehouse, marking the first use of robotics in high-end retail processing in the Australian market. Thanks to the successful partnership, Bolloré Logistics was able to upkeep their reputation as a reliable 3PL provider for luxury brands.
