Geek+, a global AMR leader, and Italian third-party logistics provider Life365 have announced the deployment of moving robots to expedite operations. Based in Forlì, an important logistics hub in the heart of Romagna, Life365 has more than 20 years’ experience in the field. The company has chosen Geek+’s automation to advance its business and take on larger competitors.
The solution Geek+ developed to handle operations in Life365’s warehouse revolves around a fleet of M200C moving robots that transfer office supplies smartphones, and other high-tech products through the facility and on their way to customers around Italy. The M-series moving robots serve largely the same purpose as old conveyor systems, but have made these obsolete thanks to the far superior flexibility that AMRs provide.
Summer Su, project manager at Life365, said: “We are devoted to the best technology available and using it to the fullest. Geek+’s moving robots represent the leading-edge in their field and allow us to continue to provide top-level service to our clients. We believe warehouse automation is the logical next step for Life365.”
Xin Yang, Sales Manager Southern Europe at Geek+, said: “This set-up, involving so many of our moving robots, is the first of its kind in Italy and demonstrates the versatility of our AMRs. The rapid implementation and fast return on investment of our AMR solutions provide a useful leg up in booming industries like e-commerce, and we are delighted to help independent retailers like Life365.”
Life365’s success comes from building a bridge between Asia and Europe to furnish their clients with the most advanced technological products. Geek+ considers itself a natural partner in this mission and is proud to be part of that story and serve that purpose. Geek+ looks forward to pursuing its own mission of moving the world intelligently and helping Life365 and others like them achieve their goals.
