- The distribution center features a unique, pioneering design that combines picking and sorting solutions for both last-mile and cross-docking operations.
MADRID, July 21, 2022 – Geekplus, the global leader in robotics technology, and Paack, a European e-commerce delivery solutions provider, are proud to announce the launch of a large-scale autonomous mobile robot-based system in Paack’s distribution center in Madrid. With over 270 sorting and picking robots deployed, it is the largest autonomous mobile robot (AMR) project in Europe and the company’s first to handle both last-mile delivery and cross-docking operations.
The distribution center is divided into two sections: a mezzanine level for sorting and a picking section on the ground floor. Sorting robots move parcels via chutes to racks on the ground floor, where picking robots move the parcels to the operators. The new system allows the distribution center to guarantee 99.99% accuracy in order fulfillment while handling up to 10,000 deliveries per hour.
Jackson Zhang, Managing Director of Geekplus Europe, said: “We are very proud of how the solution we developed with Paack has performed. This project underscores Geekplus’s commitment to automating the Spanish market, one of the most important to us.”
Jean Gateau, Key Account Director at Geekplus, said: “By entrusting AI-driven logistics robots with the sorting and moving of incoming parcels around the distribution center, we feel Paack has set a new industry standard.”
Paack’s Madrid distribution center covers more than 27,000 square meters and handles the distribution of parcels bound for over 60 cities in Spain. Geekplus AMRs handle last-mile delivery for locations in and around the Spanish capital, while cross-docking solutions prepare parcels for expedition to faraway destinations.
Having recently secured additional funding, Paack is scaling up their e-commerce operations and digitalizing their entire logistics process to better support companies all over Europe. The project, as one of the largest in the company’s history, marks a major milestone in Geekplus’s European growth, as well as in the advancement of smart logistics on the continent as a whole.
