We keep automating.
The world is changing rapidly: consumers have higher service demands, product availability remains key, labor costs are continuously increasing and available warehouse space is under pressure. Therefore, we keep automating our processes.
Katoen Natie Consumer Goods & Industry has recently invested in the Autostore system to convert a conventional solution into an automated solution. The investment in the Autostore system of more than 30.000 totes and 20 robots is done on the logistics platform in Antwerp, the Katoen Natie flagship logistics platform with a capacity of 1.200.000 sqm covered warehouse space.
This investment is realized in with the partner Element Logic. More investments in Autostore systems are planned on different European locations.
Service providers needs to be able to react to these changes and need to scale up/down capacities in a very flexible way. Autostore helps with this as it allows to order pick a large quantity of products in a very short time frame on a very condensed area.
