warehouses are built with space, light, and heating for people to be able to
work, but robots easily operate without light and heating, and space usage is
so much more efficient, as the robots work within a cubic grid.
So, implementing DSV Fulfilment Factory as part of your warehouse solution will result in energy savings and lower emissions. In fact, the system delivers a density of automated storage equivalent of only 25% of the space needed for the same capacity within traditional manual storage.
Further, the energy consumption of the robots is extremely low. The robots generate power as they lower bins within the grid or reduce their speed, much as an electrical car. By making power usage circular in this way, the energy needed is at a minimum. Plug into DSV Fulfilment Factory, where energy savings and increased space efficiency will make your order fulfilment more sustainable.
Now, everyone can benefit from automated fulfilment
Ever-higher customer expectations, shrinking order sizes, and a shortage of qualified staff are pressuring order fulfilment in e-commerce, retail, and wholesale businesses alike.
Warehouse automation offers a solution, but so far only companies with large volumes, predictable order patterns, and certainty about future flows have been able to make the sizable investment needed for the robotics concept, also known as AutoStore technology.
With DSV Fulfilment Factory, everyone can benefit from automated warehousing for some – or all – of their order fulfilment activities.
We are investing heavily and rolling out this automation concept in numerous multi-user warehouses at strategic locations around the world, creating a string of Fulfilment Factories. Many of our clients are already on board, benefitting from increased reliability and cost-efficiency.
Each DSV Fulfilment Factory is fully connected to our Warehouse Management System and seamlessly integrated into our operations. This means standard connectivity via EDI or API and end-to-end visibility. In other words, the solution is literally ‘plug & play’, and particularly aimed at small or large e-commerce businesses.
