Robotics and Automation exhibitor Logistex has been chosen by John Lewis to implement its warehouse execution system.
The warehouse execution system will optimise John Lewis’ new e-commerce distribution centre in Fenny Lock, Milton Keynes.
The multi-phase project will initially see Logistex deploy its Warehouse Execution System; Reflex, which will orchestrate the picking of orders across multiple zones of the Fenny Lock DC, and provides full integration with conveyors, Locus “Origin” robots and automated bagging Machines.
Future phases will include the deployment of an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) tote-to-person (TTP) picking solution based on HAI Robotics HAIPICK robots and HAIPORT workstations.
Tony Gruber, MD Logistex said: “We are delighted to be working with JLP on this strategically important initiative. It combines all of our key capabilities in one project, solution design, the deployment of our Reflex WES platform in a multi agent robotic based automation environment & complete project life cycle support. We look forward to a successful project and an enduring relationship with JLP”.
John Munnelly, Head of Distribution, John Lewis Partnership added: “This an exciting partnership which will transform our Fenny Lock site, as we look for new and innovative ways on how to best serve our customers.”
Logistex (Stand r504) will be at the collocated IntraLogisteX and Robotics and Automation shows on 28-29 March 2023 at the NEC Birmingham. For more information, visit www.intralogistex.co.uk.
