Robotics and warehouse automation company GreyOrange has announced plans for the installation of its newest Linear Sorters in several locations across Asia; in Saudi Arabia, India and the Philippines.
Equipped with advanced software, these high-speed Linear Sorters will deliver the flexibility and scalability required by retail, FMCG, e-commerce and third-party logistics(3PL) operators to manage high volumes for e-commerce and omnichannel distribution.
These companies anticipate and have planned to cope with the high volumes over the next months for the ongoing festive season around Diwali and the world’s biggest ecommerce event – Singles Day on 11 November. Logistics operators across Asia are expecting that the surge in volumes would follow through Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales at the end of November, and through the Christmas and year-end shopping season.
In Riyadh, a leading express courier company in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has acquired the latest sortation system from GreyOrangeTM for its customised configurations; as such automation contributes immensely in improving productivity in managing parcels for distribution across the Middle East.
One of the world’s leading FMCG companies in India, has deployed a high-end GreyOrange sortation system at its distribution center near Mumbai. The company specialises in Food, Home Care, Personal Care and Refreshment products and numerous brands. The Sorter will handle some of its categories including leading household brands. It will result in faster fulfilment and reduce turnaround times.
Nalin Advani, CEO – Asia-Pacific, GreyOrange said: “The growth in e-commerce across Asia has taken many by surprise. With annual growth rates of 12-18% in many markets, e-commerce and third party logistics operations need Sorters that can deliver the high performance they want in terms of throughput and the versatility of a scalable and responsive supply chain.”
