Kerry Logistics Deploys Award-Winning Robotic Fulfillment Solution to me e-Commerce Demands

[ September 16, 2015   //   ]

Kerry Logistics Network Limited, a logistics service provider in Asia, has introduced six fully automated and programmed robotic butlers at its flagship facility PC3 in Hong Kong to meet the ever-growing consumer demands in online shopping.

Kerry Logistics is one of the first 3PLs in Asia to adopt robotic butlers in its operations to enhance fulfillment efficiency and accuracy.

Today, speed-to-market order fulfillment is the key to success in the retail industry.

The process of picking products is at the heart of e-commerce operations where high volumes of small and irregular orders predominate.

Kerry Logistics’ robotic butlers are being deployed in the order fulfillment center where sales orders taken from retailers or e-commerce marketplaces are being processed.

Currently, the robotic butlers operate 24/7 and can pick 280 items per hour compared to 50 items in the normal course and the pick rate is four times faster.

This solution is ideal for retail brands which sell a wide variety of consumer products with potentially expanding e-commerce business.

The introduction of the robotic fulfillment solution is part of Kerry Logistics’ core values to create real value for its clients through innovative solutions and continuous improvement.
