UK warehouse automation company Logistex is working with Chinese mobile robotics company Geek+ to streamline fulfilment and increase productivity.

Combining Logistex’s warehouse automation expertise with Geek+’s robotic technology should help meet growing ecommerce demands.

Geek+’s mobile robots are known for their adaptability and scalability, making them suitable for Logistex to provide flexible, efficient and future-proof automation. The partnership will enable Logistex customers to automate material handling processes, optimise inventory management, and improve order fulfilment accuracy and speed.

“The partnership will unite our expertise and market knowledge,” said Tony Gruber, managing director of Logistex. “It’s about the collective strength to innovate and address and evolving needs of the logistics landscape. Together, we can enable more businesses to attain greater efficiency and competitiveness.”

Logistex clients use the Geek+ shelf-to-person, smart sorting and RoboShuttle-enabled hybrid options. Clients can also access the Geek+ robot management system, warehouse execution system, warehouse management system and simulation software platforms. This end-to-end automation ecosystem enables clients to optimise their operations, reduce labour costs, and increase fulfilment capacity while maintaining a high level of accuracy and reliability.

“We see this partnership with Logistex not just as a collaboration, but a fusion of visions and aspirations,” said Simon Houghton, sales director at Geek+. “Together, our combined strengths will write a new chapter of innovation and growth for the UK logistics industry.”
