DHL Supply Chain and AutoStore, a leading provider of automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), have announced an expansion of their partnership to further automate warehouse operations on a global scale.
The expanded partnership will see DHL Supply Chain become one of AutoStore's largest 3PL clients, reinforcing their commitment to digitalization and automation. DHL Supply Chain is currently involved in nine AutoStore projects across Singapore, the US, and Germany, with four more in the planning stage. This includes the construction of five further facilities in addition to those already in operation or planning.
The partners will work together to implement AutoStore's innovative AS/RS technology, which has been developed to efficiently manage and optimize inventory using vastly reduced space within warehouses. Its highly modular and scalable design makes it a preferred solution for e-commerce and businesses handling smaller products such as fashion and tech items.
“We are pleased to expand our existing relationship with AutoStore as we continue to implement our digitalization and automation strategy in a growing number of warehouses, allowing us to better and faster serve our customers,” said Markus Voss, COO and CIO at DHL Supply Chain. “AutoStore’s standardized and modular technology perfectly aligns with our aim to make our operations more efficient, enabling swift scalability and adaptability across various use cases and end-markets – a crucial factor for us as a third-party logistics provider.”
“Our longstanding collaboration with DHL Supply Chain has showcased the strength, reliability, and efficiency of AutoStore’s technology,” said Mats Hovland Vikse, CEO of AutoStore. “We are thrilled to further expand this valued partnership, supporting DHL Supply Chain’s global deployment of automated warehouse solutions. We are excited about the significant growth opportunity that this represents for AutoStore, as we continue to drive innovation in the world of logistics.”
This expanded partnership between DHL Supply Chain and AutoStore promises to redefine the future of warehousing, offering scalable, adaptable, and efficient solutions that cater to the ever-evolving needs of customers worldwide.Return to Articles
