Logistics BusinessAI and Robotic Solution into Warehouses

Dexory, a leading provider of cutting-edge AI and robotics solutions, today announced its partnership with Iron Mountain, a global leader in information management, innovative storage, data centre infrastructure, and asset lifecycle management.

Since 2021, Iron Mountain has expanded into a third-party logistics (3PL) provider, disrupting the Warehouse & Logistics industry with its innovative and agile solutions. The company has chosen to adopt DexoryView as its preferred inventory and tracking solution at four strategic Iron Mountain warehouses across Kettering Symmetry Park, Lutterworth Magna Park North and Rugby Symmetry Park.

Iron Mountain, which is trusted by more than 225,000 customers around the world, was looking for an automated solution to inventory management and space optimisation for these warehouses, rather than opting for a more traditional and manual intensive route. Using Dexory’s technology, combining powerful analytics with autonomous robots, Iron Mountain will be able to scan 15,000 locations per hour, without impacting its day-to-day operations. This allows the company to analyse its pallet lifecycle within its warehouses, leading to a more robust operational efficiencies. In addition, Iron Mountain is able to gather full visibility of stock and track inventory movements – providing greater insights for continuous improvements across all of the sites.

Maria Torrent-March, Warehousing & Logistics Strategy Director at Iron Mountain, says: “Implementing a future-proof, innovative inventory solution is key to our warehousing strategic direction. Dexory’s technology enables our vision for automation and efficiency, especially where we have large rotations of stock, reducing our overall operational costs.”

Dexory’s robots measure, count, track and find inventory across warehouses as they navigate the racks, without workflow disruption. The data is pushed in real-time to the DexoryView warehouse digital twin platform, offering end-to-end visibility across the state of the warehouse operations. By implementing autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and AI-powered, DexoryView platform, Iron Mountain is able to further improve its process compliance, accuracy in stock counting and improve the response time from its inventory team.

Oana Jinga, Dexory’s Chief Commercial Officer, commented: “We’re thrilled to have Iron Mountain adopt our data-driven technology for these warehouses in the UK. Introducing DexoryView will provide them with the ability to deliver greater efficiencies and accurate stock management.” Dexory provides the only system on the market that combines inventory-scanning robots with powerful warehouse analytics, all built and maintained in-house.
