Geek+ and Körber announce AMR partnership 13 November 2020

Geek+, a global AMR supplier, and Körber, a global supply chain technology supplier from software to materials handling automation, have announced the beginning of a global strategic partnership.

Together, the two companies have declared a joint commitment to provide businesses worldwide with Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) that can enable efficient, flexible and smart logistics solutions. With an already extensive portfolio of successful cases across industries and a wide variety of AI-driven robotics solutions applicable to different supply chain scenarios, Geek+ will now make its technology available to Körber’s global customer base.

Combining Körber’s capabilities for integration, advisory, and maintenance for robotics with Geek+, the partnership addresses the current market needs for technologies and strategies to effectively mitigate increasing supply chain complexities through the joint capabilities of AI, robotics, software and machine learning. This is particularly true in light of Covid-19, resulting in a multitude of challenges such as labour shortages, health risks, and unpredictable fluctuations in demand.

“We are excited to be entering into our first global partnership and equally excited that it is with Körber. This partnership allows us to provide businesses worldwide with AMR solutions that can help realise flexible and efficient logistics operations. Having already experienced successful collaboration between Geek+ and Körber within the Asia Pacific region, we are confident that this global partnership will lead to accelerated market expansion. Together, we are bringing the future of smart warehousing to companies worldwide,” commented Hong Yu, CMO at Geek+.

In the past 5 years, Geek+’s ability to deliver real value to its customers has led to international expansion and rapid growth. This includes the successful deployment of 10,000 AMRs globally in support of over 300 world renowned customer brands. Geek+ robotic systems continuously demonstrate high effectiveness that helps its customers improve operational performance and drive improved business continuity.

“Körber’s relationship with Geek+ is spurred by innovation,” said Nishan Wijemanne, global leader for AMR Solutions at Körber. “Our ongoing global investments in the advancement of robotics brings a new level of performance to the warehouse floor. By collaborating with Geek+, Körber provides the flexibility, adaptability and precision businesses need to conquer supply chain complexity today and beyond.”
