Swisslog has brought the mobile goods-to-person system, a set of software and robots which aid order fulfilment, in-house

The company, which makes software and robots for warehouse management, said the move would strengthen CarryPick, its order picking system.

Companies such as Swisslog, which automate warehouse management operations, have been boosted by the need for faster order handling as more customers turn to online shopping.

The company said that the CarryPick system?s new KMP600 AGV, a robot which moves items around in a warehouse, was developed in collaboration with Germany's KUKA Group.

Swisslog's new system will make the vehicle quieter, increase battery life, cut downtime and simplify system software operations.

With the company?s new SynQ software platform customers can avoid the need for different software systems, cutting downtime and errors, in an industry which is centered around lowering costs and bettering delivery times.

?Aside from the distinct advantages of the new system, it also comes with comprehensive service from our global support network. Its stability leads to better results for our customers by reducing downtime and improving WIFI capabilities,? Dr Christian Baur, COO Swisslog Group & CEO Swisslog Logistics Automation, said.

?Since we have control over all elements of the platform we will constantly update and add features to provide the best solution across the entire lifecycle of the solution,? concludes Dr. Baur.
