Global logistics service provider Rhenus in Hong Kong collaborates with Geek+ to co-develop smart logistics solutions through automation of warehousing operations with autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).

Geek+, a global AMR leader and Rhenus Hong Kong are proud to announce the successful deployment of the first AMR-operated Rhenus warehouse in Asia.

The innovation-focused, solutions-oriented logistics provider Rhenus Hong Kong will adopt Geek+’s advanced robotics and AI technologies in a proof-of-concept warehousing project in the country. This is the latest Rhenus initiative in the region and is part of its ongoing strategy to deepen its focus on IT-driven digitalisation by tapping into smart logistics to build a sustainable and robust supply chain.

Cliff Xu, CEO, Rhenus Air & Ocean Greater China said, “Our goal is to provide the best and most innovative logistics service to achieve faster and more flexible movement of goods, to cater to the rapid growth in e-commerce. By working closely with Geek+, we not only realise warehouse digitalisation, but also improve operational efficiency and accuracy, translating to greater cost-savings for customers in the long run.”

The Rhenus Hong Kong warehouse will use Geek+ Goods-to-person solutions. Robots will be used as part of the system to automatically bring goods to the operators, achieving 99.99 percent accuracy. The solution also helps maximise warehouse storage as aisle space is minimised.

One of the features of the AI-driven system are Geek+’s proprietary algorithms. They optimise order combinations and adjust the inventory layouts in real time, maximising efficiency. In the Rhenus Hong Kong warehouse, over 2,000 SKUs of cosmetic products are constantly arranged according to popularity and expiry date.

Lit Fung, VP, managing director APAC, UK and Americas at Geek+ said, "We believe that the smart warehouse upgrade is the only answer to the rapid growth of e-commerce business and growing customer expectations. We will continue to support Rhenus with tailored solutions that best fit their multi-customer business.”
