Dexory has partnered with Northamptonshire warehousing and logistics 3PL Linkline to unlock operational efficiencies using real-time data at its warehouse in Kettering, with a view to further roll-out to the wider estate.
Linkline already uses various automation solutions, and plans on building a large, automated hub in 12–18 months’ time to support its growth plans and ambition to drive greater efficiencies for its customers. This drive and innovative approach further demonstrates a commitment to invest in technology, making this an ideal partnership for Dexory.
Dexory’s solution addresses the urgent need for improved space utilisation and increased efficiencies, combining powerful analytics with autonomous robots capable of capturing rich image and sensor data from across any warehouse. This powerful combination provides comprehensive and actionable visibility across warehouses of any size, as well as connecting warehouses across the global supply chain through Dexory’s digital platform, DexoryView.
Linkline aims to introduce its data collection autonomous robot Dextor (the name the Linkline team have given the robot) to the Kettering site next week (w/c 11th September). Dextor will then operate every night, scanning the full 250,000 sq ft warehouse, integrating into the day to day warehouse operations, working alongside the operations and warehouse teams. Progress can be followed on the Linkline Transport LinkedIn page during this first week.
James Bowes, Chairman of Linkline, commented: “We’re hugely excited to start putting Dextor to use in our warehouses. We’re always looking at technological solutions to drive more value for our customers and Dextor will do just that. We anticipate strong time savings for our warehouse operators who currently have to manually stock check at regular intervals throughout the week whereas now this process will be completed at night by Dextor.”
Oana Jinga, Chief Commercial Officer & Co-founder of Dexory, added: “Dexory is really excited to have Linkline on board and really seeing the value of data-driven technology for their operations. Integrating DexoryView into their Kettering warehouse, will allow them to unlock greater efficiencies and proactively prevent any errors resulting from stock inaccuracy, delivering on the best point of service for both themselves and their customers.”
