The Supply Chain Excellence Awards rewards companies that excel in their supply chain operations globally. The award has brought together a wide range of applicants from all around the world, making it the benchmark for best supply chain best practices.
Simon Houghton, Head of Sales and Marketing at Geek+ UK & Ireland said: “We are honoured to receive this award. It is a recognition of our successful collaboration with AMH and ASDA and the ability of Geek+ engineers to develop flexible robotics solutions for smart sorting.
At Geek+ we look forward to leveraging our deep industry insights and strong R&D capabilities to continue to provide intelligent solutions that can help companies streamline logistics processes and transform the global supply chain.”
Geek+’s award-winning sorting solution helps Asda Logistics Services (ALS) achieve 99.99% accuracy through the Asda ‘toyou’ service. Sixty robots have been implemented into Asda’s distribution centre by AMH Material Handling to help ASDA respond quickly to sudden changes in order volume and provide outstanding services during periods of peak demand.
Andrew Coffey, Senior Manager – Engineering Development & Innovation, ASDA Logistics Service added: “It’s really satisfying to gain recognition from the industry for the work we’re doing to innovate within ASDA Logistics Services. This project was a great team effort, working with Geek+ and AMH, not to mention the operations and systems teams who helped bring the solution to life. It’s amazing to be able to support the continued growth within ASDA toyou with a solution that works so well. (And looks pretty cool!)”
Adrian Carter, Sales Director at AMH Material Handling, says: “We believe these awards could bring the awareness of AMRs in the logistic sector in the UK. After seeing the successful result of ADSA, more companies would step into AMR solutions.”
