Geek+ deploys Goods-To-Person solutions for the Rhenus Group in Swiss warehouse

Geek+, the global leader in autonomous mobile robotics (AMR), implements their best-in-class goods-to-person technology at Rhenus’ warehouse in Switzerland.

The P800 AMR system is a goods-to-person self-driving shelf system. The AMR robot selects the shelf with the demanded product(s) and drives it to the pick workstations where the employees can take out the items. This first installation in Basel consists of 13,320 shelf spaces. The first two customers who will benefit from the brand-new AMR installation are Waldmeier AG and Max Bersinger AG. The transfer of the products of these two leading toy wholesalers is in full swing.

Philipp Bittner, COO at Rhenus in Switzerland, said, “After receiving the positive feedback from our colleagues in Hong Kong, it was very easy for us to follow suit. The AMRs not only optimise our processes but also help us to reduce energy consumption.”

Jan Jongbloets, Vice President Global Key Accounts & Partners at Geek+ Europe, said, “Working with Rhenus on the Swiss project following our successful Hong Kong collaboration shows how strong the trust is between the two companies. Our Goods-To-Person solutions are the key to a modern warehouse. In addition to this, replicating the original installation also shows how easy automation can be with the right partner.”

Alexander Quercher, Project Manager at Rhenus Logistic, states: “Thanks to good teamwork and fast communication, all challenges in the project could been handled efficiently.”

Rhenus and Geek+ have plans to further strengthen their partnership by embarking on additional projects aimed at automating warehouses across the globe in the upcoming years. The next scheduled venture is set to take place in Switzerland in 2024.
