Körber and Libiao Robotics, global specialist for autonomous mobile robots, have partnered to deliver the newest robotics technologies to Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America.
An increase in e-commerce and order volumes in general led to the partnership. After adding Libiao Robotics’ autonomous mobile sorting robots to the mix, Körber has improved its scalabity and offering.
Xia Huiling, CEO of Libiao Robotics said: “The cooperation with Körber will help the development of Libiao’s global strategy. The current global COVID-19 pandemic is changing market structures and trends. The impact of the pandemic and the rapid growth of e-commerce have prompted reforms in the logistics and supply chain fields.”
Anton du Preez, responsible for AMR in Europe and Middle East at Körber Business Area Supply Chain added: “As volumes increase, additional robots can be cost-effectively added, and the solution can be easily reconfigured or relocated as the business changes. What’s more is that our integration experience enables us to reliably integrate these robots with our customer’s back-end systems.”
