Geekplus Optimizes New Alpen Ecommerce Facility With Goods-To-Person Flagship Solution

Geekplus has again partnered with Alpen to bring its Shelf-to-Person solution to the company’s new 33,000-square-meter ecommerce warehouse in Western Japan. The facility, located in Inazawa City, Aichi Prefecture, is expected to go live this Spring.

This phased expansion adds to Geekplus’ existing work with Alpen at its facility in Eastern Japan.

Alpen first began using 56 flagship Geekplus Goods-to-Person robots in its Eastern Japan ecommerce center in 2018. As its ecommerce business grew, Alpen scaled up to 216 robots in the 23,000-square-meter facility, achieving a 4x efficiency improvement and doubling storage capacity while shortening delivery lead time.

“Due to ecommerce demand, we have launched strategic fulfillment centers in eastern and western Japan, aiming to establish a network capable of fast and efficient supply to the market,” said Ryuichi Hamanaka, Alpen’s head of logistics. “The mission was not only to decentralize distribution but also to ensure healthy profits in terms of managing cost and productivity.”

For its order fulfillment automation, Alpen needed modular, flexible automation that could adapt quickly to changes in order flows and allowed a scaled approach to implementation.
