Swisslog unveils latest automation solutions at Dubai expo

DUBAI, April 17, 2018

Switzerland-based Swisslog, a specialist in integrated automation, highlighted the group's latest automation solutions for businesses in the region during its debut participation at Seamless Retail Middle East, held in Dubai, UAE.

Swisslog is a subsidiary of the German robots manufacturer Kuka, catering to two divisions: logistics automation and healthcare.

The two-day event concluded yesterday (April 16), at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center.

Swisslog discussed its latest warehouse automation solutions for forward-thinking businesses in retail, e-commerce and multichannel in the UAE and the Middle East, said a statement from the company.

According to Gartner, revenue growth, digital transformation, and customer focus are the top strategic business priorities for retail CIOs in 2018. While mobile technology has fundamentally changed how consumers shop and buy online, consumers also expect retailers to connect their physical and digital storefronts seamlessly in order to provide the best retail experience. Globally, retail e-commerce is expected to increase to 14.6 per cent of total retail, with a market volume of more than $4 trillion.

Alain Kaddoum, general manager, Swisslog Middle East, said: “We are committed to continue supporting Middle Eastern retail and e-commerce companies, when it comes to warehouse automation to help them achieve fast product delivery, high accuracy, and efficient operations.”

“With some online retailers offering free delivery on e-commerce orders, it’s becoming clear that the future belongs to organisations that have the flexibility to adapt to how consumers prioritise choice, speed and convenience,” he said.

“Our technology solutions like AutoStore or CarryPick address these challenges and provide retail chains with functionalities such as split case picking and fast turnaround times. With our industry 4.0 and robotics solutions we help our clients be ready for the challenges of tomorrow,” he added.

At the exhibition, Swisslog demonstrated its full suite of solutions including automated high bay warehousing and goods-to-person systems that decrease the error ratios by utilising less manpower while managing daily fluctuations in demand in a more flexible and cost-efficient way.-TradeArabia News Service
