Logistics BusinessIntelligent Sortation of Large-size Packages

Geek+, a global AMR leader, is proud to announce the launch of its new S100C large-size parcel sorting robot, advancing its already extensive line of intelligent sorting robots and expanding the possibilities for automated sorting.

S100C is an efficient, stable, and affordable solution for solving many of the complex logistics scenarios brought on by increased online sales and the need for systems that can flexibly handle a wide variety of goods. The robot can support unit sortation, parcel sortation, and bins transportation, making it applicable to many industry scenarios, from 3PLs and distribution centers to cross-docking facilities and airports.

Equipped with an independent rotating control chassis and collision avoidance, S100C can operate narrow spaces, saving 30% of the sortation area. High-speed control belts allow the robot to process two items in one go or deliver one large item at a speed of 2m/s. If a package is positioned too close to the edge of the control belt, the robot will slow down and adjust the position of the package to ensure accuracy and safety. Additionally, the mechanical structure and load-bearing components of S100C allows for seamless handling of packages weighing 100 kg or more, reducing labor-intensive operations and associated risks and costs.

Kai Liu, Co-founder, VP Picking & Smart Warehouse, Geek+, says: “At Geek+ we strive to develop robotics solutions that won´t make it a choice of efficiency or safety. With S100C, companies will be able to ensure a safer working environment, while meeting the needs for accuracy and more effective handling larger order volumes. The robot is also a good economic choice since the system powering S100C allows easy deployment and quick scaling of operations.”

Built on AI-driven AMR technology, the sorting system powering S100C enables quick deployment in less than 2 weeks. The flexibility of the system leads to lower implementation costs and allows businesses to quickly scale operations by adjusting the number of robots. Similarly, the robot can be easily integrated with existing infrastructure and collaborate with other robots to realize comprehensive systems for automated warehouse operations. Lastly, the system can be easily customized to support RFID technology or bar code scanning for more efficient sortation.
Today, companies across the world are looking for solutions that can help them handle fluctuating demand and a tight labor market. S100C is the most recent step in Geek+ mission to provide businesses with automated, customized, and safe solutions for meeting the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Logistics BusinessPartnership to Enhance Multi-Carrier Parcel Shipping

Logistyx Technologies, a leader in transportation management for parcel shipping, has announced a new agreement to continue partnership with Manhattan Associates, a technology leader in supply chain and omnichannel commerce, as the company releases the latest enhancements to shift its product to the cloud.

As an independent Manhattan Value Partner since 2012, under this new containerised model, Logistyx now offers the ability to upgrade to enhanced parcel shipping capabilities more cost-effectively, providing Manhattan customers unlimited access to more than 8,500 global carrier services that will enable rate shopping and shipping execution to any location worldwide. 2020 marks the eighth anniversary of Logistyx’s global partnership with Manhattan, with a successful track record serving as a trusted partner to Manhattan’s Warehouse Management for Open Systems (WMOS), Order Management System (OMS) and Warehouse Management for IBMi (WMI) users, and now Manhattan Active Warehouse Management.

In 2014, Manhattan and Logistyx more closely aligned with a strategic partnership to jointly develop what is now known as an external parcel interface (EPI) to provide their WMOS users access to a much larger parcel carrier network. Logistyx has since deployed its industry-leading TME technology throughout the Manhattan WMOS user community. Together, Logistyx and Manhattan issued a five-year milestone announcement in 2019 highlighting the many successful deployments of Logistyx TME and Manhattan’s EPI.

“Manhattan Associates values our enduring partnership with Logistyx to bring innovative solutions to customers,” said Adam Kline, Senior Director, Product Management at Manhattan Associates. “As an established leader in multi-carrier parcel management, Logistyx’s state-of-the-art cloud technology proved yet again to serve as a quality match with our EPI in delivering a superior global parcel shipping solution.”

As a co-developer of the EPI, Logistyx is helping Manhattan bring a next-generation EPI to the market. “Logistyx and Manhattan’s technology roadmaps with a focus on increased cloud capabilities have often aligned, which has resulted in a successful partnership over the last several years,” said Logistyx President Ken Fleming. “The partnership between Logistyx and Manhattan provides customers a true enterprise-class shipping platform with broader carrier options and the advanced tools to help them ship from anywhere to anywhere.”

Logistyx offers Manhattan customers the ability to better manage their parcel shipping activities with support for a blended carrier strategy and the capacity to deploy an extensive selection of carriers, providing an expanded global footprint for customers to achieve the best value for every destination, delivery time and product.

Food Supply Chain Safety Survey

Logistics BusinessFood Supply Chain Safety Survey

Zebra Technologies Corporation has announced the results of its ‘Food Safety Supply Chain Vision Study’. The study highlights the views of consumers as well as food and beverage industry decision-makers worldwide from distribution and warehouses to grocery stores and restaurants around safety, traceability and transparency.

Surveyed consumers reported their top food safety concerns include restaurant kitchen and wait staff hygiene, foodborne outbreaks, illness from contaminated food, and food and beverage recalls. More than 80% of surveyed consumers said companies have an important role to play in implementing food safety solutions and an ethical responsibility to ensure the safe handling of their food. 70% said it is important to know how their food and ingredients are manufactured, prepared, and handled, while 69% agreed knowing how their food is sourced is also important.

Given recent food safety incidents and an increased focus on health and wellness, it’s unsurprising both consumers and industry decision-makers are showing a great level of interest in the source, quality and safety of their food. However, a disconnect exists between what consumers believe and what industry decision-makers think. Almost seven in 10 decision-makers say the industry is prepared to manage food traceability and transparency, but only 35% of consumers agree. Furthermore, only 13% of consumers felt the industry was extremely prepared today to manage food traceability and be transparent about how food travels through the supply chain, whereas 27% of decision-makers reported feeling this way.

“Findings from our study show that while the industry is taking measures to ensure a more transparent supply chain, more work needs to be done in order to increase consumer confidence and improve food traceability,” says Mark Wheeler, Director of Supply Chain Solutions, Zebra Technologies. “Businesses naturally have more information available to them but can improve consumers’ faith in their food sources by providing them access to the same information.”

One bright spot identified in the research is the role that technology can play in closing both these gaps in both the short- and long-term. An overwhelming majority of decision-makers acknowledged that investments in traceability-focused solutions will provide them with a competitive advantage by enabling them to meet the expectations of consumers. When asked about the top benefits that technology-based track and trace solutions would provide, six in 10 decision-makers cited risk reductions with proper handling, transportation and storage and tracking product perishability. 41% of industry decision-makers reported RFID tags improve food traceability within the supply chain more than any other technology, yet only 31% currently use them within their own organisations.

Mobile computers, mobile barcode label/thermal printers, rugged scanners and specialty labels and tags will also be key enablers in winning consumer trust and delivering more transparent information to consumers. 90% of surveyed industry decision-makers expect to use rugged handheld mobile computers with scanners, rugged barcode scanners and mobile barcode label/thermal printers within the next five years to digitally manage and track food products and related information.
