Warehouse automation and software specialist Swisslog is to implement AutoStore for syncreon, a United States contract logistics company. The newly constructed, automated distribution centre in Carlisle, PA (USA) will serve both e-commerce and retail fulfilment. The new facility occupies approximately one million square feet and is scheduled to begin fulfilment operations in June 2018.
syncreon is globally recognized for optimizing customers’ supply chains, providing tailored, innovative, and scalable solutions that reduce costs and improve performance. According to David Minns, Senior Vice President, Global Procurement, for syncreon, “We believe that a proven goods-to-person picking solution like AutoStore will be a perfect complement to our more conventional picking operations. We are particularly attracted to the easy scalability of AutoStore for our future growth. As a global company, we selected Swisslog as our implementation partner because of their strong global footprint and support organization.”
Swisslog is the leading global integrator of the AutoStore system with more than 85 installations. Swisslog’s AutoStore solution combines intelligent SynQ warehouse management software and unique pick stations not offered by other integrators.
Markus Schmidt, President Swisslog WDS Americas, commented, “It’s exciting to see this technology really take off in the United States. American companies are rapidly adopting goods-to-person automation and turning to Swisslog because of our vast experience compared to other integrators. After installing more than 85 projects, our realization has been perfected to the point that our team can install in short time frames while tailoring solutions that work for our diverse clientele in the E-commerce/retail, consumer goods and production logistics industries.”
