Best-in-class picking productivity
through AMRs

CEVA Logistics Australia is a subsidiary of the CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics. As one of the top five logistics providers in Australia, the division operates across the automotive, consumer and retail, energy, healthcare, industrial and aerospace, and technology sectors.

Industry: Logistics and Supply Chain
Location: Australia

Challenges

CEVA Logistics Australia needed a fast and cost-effective solution for their newest eCommerce customer in shoe retail. The goal for the solution was to:

  • Manage the new customers’ rapid growth in an efficient and productive way
  • Improve the shoe retailers speed of delivery
  • Improve previous picking rates and efficiencies from radio-frequency (RF) devices

Solutions implemented

CEVA Logistics Australia partnered with Körber to deploy Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) at the company’s warehouse.

This meant:

  • Körber integrated the AMR solution into CEVA’s Warehouse Management System (WMS)
  • 8 AMRs working across 400 sqm of warehouse space
  • The project began in October 2019 and went live in January 2020

Benefits

Once Körber’s AMR solution went live, CEVA Logistics Australia saw promising results from the pilot solution:

  • Picking rates increased by 400 percent
  • The flexibility and ease of installation demonstrated that this solution could work across a range of clients
  • Ability to handle high-profile customer’s increase in demand

The Story

CEVA Logistics Australia is a regional division of CEVA Logistics. CEVA was created in August 2007 when TNT Logistics and EGL merged into one company. CEVA is one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies with over 78,000 employees working across ten regional clusters worldwide. In Australia, CEVA Logistics Australia is one of the top five logistics providers. When a high-profile shoe retailer became a customer, CEVA knew they needed to improve picking rates in order to keep up with the new increase in demand. CEVA Logistics Australia partnered with Körber to integrate 8 AMRs with CEVA’s Warehouse Management System (WMS) for picking. This project was a success, impressing both CEVA and their shoe retailer client. CEVA Logistics now plans to do similar solutions in their warehouses worldwide.



With Körber’s AMR solution, which is based on Geek+ technology, we immediately saw a very fast and efficient picking productivity and throughput solution.
