Körber Supply Chain and Fetch Robotics Join Forces to Conquer Global Supply Chain Complexity with AMRs
Leading supply chain solution and robotics providers evolve warehousing & logistics worldwide with local service, support and next-generation technology
HAMBURG, Germany and ORLANDO, Florida, March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Körber Supply Chain - the global supply chain technology leader from software to material handling automation, today announces its partnership with Fetch Robotics, the leader in cloud robotics and on-demand automation. Part of Körber Supply Chain's robotics practice, the partnership will help empower companies across the globe to conquer supply chain complexity with autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
Supply chains are becoming increasingly complex. Along with more products, suppliers and distribution channels to meet heightening consumer expectations, businesses are faced with global labor challenges. New and emerging technologies, such as robotics, can help. However, many businesses struggle with implementation, integration, maintenance, training and costs. Together, Körber and Fetch overcome these challenges.
Under the strategic partnership, Körber will act as a global reseller, advisor and integrator of Fetch's AMR solutions and cloud robotics software. Fetch will benefit from Körber's depth of expertise, including 1,300 in-house professionals and nearly 100 strategic partners across the globe. This assures AMRs are integrated with a sound supply chain strategy - working in tandem with new and existing staff, material handling equipment, and technology.
"Our partnership with Fetch Robotics allows us to extend the automation opportunity for our customers across the wide range of workflows involved in material movements in the warehouse," said John Santagate, vice president of robotics at Körber Supply Chain - software. "Fetch has a strong portfolio of mobile robots that, when combined with the extensive supply chain knowledge and commitment to innovation at Körber, creates an optimized approach to flexible automation."
Additionally, there is future opportunity for integration with Körber's breadth of supply chain solutions, such as voice and warehouse management systems, to enhance fulfillment, picking, replenishment and beyond. The result is a truly flexible automation platform – providing immediate value by simplifying operations, maximizing productivity and making the most of capacity.
