DHL Supply Chain and robotic technology company AutoStore™ are expanding their partnership in a move set to further automated warehouse operations on a global scale.
DHL Supply Chain, already involved in nine operational AutoStore warehouse projects with four more in the planning stage, is poised to become one of AutoStore’s largest 3PL clients, reinforcing their commitment to digitalisation and automation.
The nine existing S*stems effectively operate 800,000 Bins, with the forthcoming four S*stems elevating the total number of Bins to a remarkable 1.2 million. In the future, DHL also intends to construct five further facilities in addition to those already in operation or planning.
“We are pleased to expand our existing relationship with AutoStore as we continue to implement our digitalisation and automation strategy in a growing number of warehouses, allowing us to better and faster serve our customers,” says Markus Voss, COO and CIO at DHL Supply Chain.
“Through a standardised approach and dedicated stock availability we will be able to significantly drive down implementation times. Additionally, the AutoStore network of partners is invaluable in supporting our growth strategy across multiple geographies.”
“Our longstanding collaboration with DHL Supply Chain has showcased the strength, reliability, and efficiency of AutoStore technology,” says Mats Hovland Vikse, CEO of AutoStore.
“We are thrilled to further expand this valued partnership, supporting DHL Supply Chain’s global deployment of automated warehouse solutions.”
This innovative automated storage and retrieval s*stem (AS/RS) technology has been developed to efficiently manage and optimise inventory using vastly reduced space within warehouses. Its highly modular and scalable design makes it a preferred solution for e-commerce and businesses handling smaller products such as fashion and tech items.
This expanded partnership between DHL Supply Chain and AutoStore promises to redefine the future of warehousing, offering scalable, adaptable, and efficient solutions that cater to the ever-evolving needs of customers worldwide.
