Catch Group partnered with Körber to deploy Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) at the company’s distribution center.
Catch Group was acquired by Wesfarmers in 2020, adding thousands of additional SKUs to its already extensive range of products and brands. Since the company’s beginning, Catch has experienced success as an early innovator in the Australian eCommerce market. With the help of Körber’s AMR solution, Catch Group has risen to meet the demand since COVID-19 began driving more consumers online. The deployment will take around three months, helping Catch Group accelerate its online fulfillment capabilities. Catch’s goal is to move towards offering same-day delivery to customers. Catch Group values the efficiency, extra capacity, and all other benefits AMRs bring to their warehouse operations. Seeing a near 70 percent increase in total sales for the second half of FY20, Catch knew it was time for additional support. Catch Group is positioning the retailer for success as COVID-19 will only continue to drive eCommerce to record highs.
