Dutch systems integrator Inther has automated several distribution centres for internet retail giant Alibaba in China.
The biggest e-commerce company in the world, Alibaba (well known as Alibaba.com), is busy optimizing its technology at several distribution centres. The company started with four DCs in Shanghai and one in Ningbo, China. Alibaba decided to partner with system integrator Inther in order to improve efficiency within their intralogistics.
All of these Alibaba DCs will be automated with vertical lifts and several hundred meters of conveyor.
Inther Logistics Technology Co., Ltd is currently busy implementing the systems, which will be managed by Warehouse Control System Inther LC.
