Cohesio and Galipo Partner to Implement Chilled Warehouse AMR Solution.
Cohesio Group and Galipo Foods have a long history of collaboration in delivering cutting edge technology projects that optimise warehouse operations. With the rapid growth that Galipo have been experiencing, their team reached out to Cohesio Group to come up with a solution to keep them ahead of the curve.
To effectively shake up the logistics industry, Galipo Foods decided to be the first to deploy Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) in a temperature-controlled food service environment. The project represented a brave new frontier in the use of AMR technology. The Automation Solutions team had yet to integrate and deploy the Geek+ Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) in the cold chain sector, and its members were intrigued by the challenge of working within the constraints of a carefully managed budget. The flexibility of the technology was a huge attraction for Galipo, and Cohesio soon saw that implementation wouldn't be hugely complicated from a purely mechanical standpoint.
The project was launched in August 2019, and has showed significant improvements to efficiencies after just a few months. The AMRs have doubled Galipo's pallet-picking rate, helping the team to better meet customer demands. Faster picking and less travel around the distribution centre enabled the fleet to take more orders more often, and Galipo was able to begin faultlessly assembling custom food orders, with floor staff seamlessly managing the process while the AMRs handled the heavy lifting.
