Chinese robotics company Geek+ collaborated with Japan Post subsidiary Toll Group to launch its first robotics sorting warehouse in South Korea.

Geek+ specialises in mobile robot and smart logistics. It worked with logistics company Toll Group to build the automated warehouse, which spans an area equivalent to four football fields and can store up to 300,000 inventory items.

“We are thrilled to deliver a competitive edge to Toll through the seamless integration of robotic automation into their supply chain,” said Stephen Kim, sales director for Geek+ in Korea. “This is the first Geek+ partnership with Toll Group, and we will continue to explore future opportunities jointly. We anticipate empowering Toll to expand the applications of mobile order fulfilment robots and replicate the success of this project in the future.”

At Toll Group’s site at Baeksa, more than 60 robots seamlessly streamline the sortation operations, resulting in a 70% increase in productivity and sorting efficiency in support of ecommerce, retail and omnichannel fulfilment for retail customers. This improvement has led to cost savings associated with time and labour, enabling Toll Group to provide faster ecommerce order delivery, as well as real-time tracking and traceability for enhanced customer satisfaction.

“The investment reflects Toll’s commitment to innovation and is part of our broader strategy to grow in key Asian markets by providing our customers with the very latest in warehouse automation technology,” said Dongseop Yoon, senior business development executive at Toll. “As our business grows, Geek+’s sorting system has enabled us to manage increasing volumes quickly and efficiently.”
