Robots to help pick and pack
11 May 2021
THE EGROCERY business Matsmart invested in an AutoStore solution from Element Logic in their over 20,000 sq m warehouse in Örebro, Sweden.
In the new solar-powered warehouse, 149 AutoStore robots will effectively help staff to pick and pack goods. The solution is expected to be put into operation in the spring of 2022. The 149 robots will support the employees, and the picking capacity is estimated to be as much as 6,000 order lines per hour.
Matsmart logistics manager Conrad Edgren says: “Our current warehouse is as efficient as possible, based on its size and organisation. Our employees do a fantastic job. But we are very quickly approaching our maximum capacity in the current premises and it is time to scale up to the next level. We expect that our new automated warehouse will give us three times more capacity with plenty of room to grow further. Therefore, we also hope that our employees choose to join the new warehouse.”
