Warehouse Automation and Robotics

Assessment and evaluation of technology in your warehouse

Warehouse automation and robotics are transforming the logistics industry. Increasing adoption of technology is driving efficiency throughout operations and bringing with it, additional service benefits in order accuracy and customer responsiveness. Automation and robotics can be used to perform activities previously carried by people but faster with greater accuracy and efficiency.

BoxLogic are warehouse automation experts. Our knowledge and understanding of the available technologies allow us to advise customers on solutions that can address a single, specific process all the way up to full scale, end-to-end automation. Simple deployments may include using technology to reduce manual pallet movements within the warehouse. More complex systems could include Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS), goods-to-person picking, automated packing and stacking.

As warehouse automation specialists, we are well equipped to evaluate whether technology is financially feasible in your operation. Our consultants assess the return on investment against manual solutions and will clearly state when a manual approach is more appropriate. Our data-driven approach ensures that all design assumptions are well grounded so that we can design a concept solution that is both fit-for-purpose and practical.

We deliver warehouse automation and robotics design projects using our proven and methodical approach:

Familiarisation
Firstly, we set out to understand how your operation works. We learn about the fundamental challenges and what we need to address in a future design. We work with stakeholders at all levels via interviews and workshops to develop a view of what good looks like to your business.
Planning Base
The goal is to agree the future volumes to design the warehouse solution to. We achieve this by analysing a representative data sample to establish the current average and peak order profiles and volumes. We forecast profile changes and agree the design volumes in a series of workshops.
Option Modelling
To select a preferred concept solution, our consultants agree a range of storage and picking options with your team for us to model. We then create bespoke models, evaluating the capital and operational costs and size of each option, recommending the solution offering the most attractive ROI.
Solution Development
After a preferred solution has been agreed, we develop the concept further by producing CAD layouts, 3D renders and a proposed transition plan. We confirm the budget Capex and Opex to feed into your business case and can support the board approval process in any way that is required.
