Geek+ partners with BlueSkye Automation to bring customers complete smart warehouse solutions

ATLANTA, May 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Geekplus, the global leader in mobile robot and smart logistics solutions, has partnered with BlueSkye Automation to deploy a fully automated smart warehouse solution powered by the Geekplus suite of Goods-to-Person mobile robots for a Georgia-based 3PL.

Future projects include implementations for a large consumer goods producer and an integrated autonomous solution for a leading automotive manufacturer.

The initial deployment helped a 3PL specializing in the ecommerce and wholesale fulfillment business meet ballooning e-commerce sales and navigate severe labor shortages. Together with BlueSkye, Geekplus updated the customer's manual processes by deploying Shelf-to-Person, Sorting and four-way shuttle Pallet-to-Person solutions alongside conveyors, print & apply and robotic arms. By harnessing the power of four different types of robot technology, the fully automated warehouse can now handle a range of order fulfillment types from both B2B and B2C orders to each picks and case picks. 

After theinstallation and go-live of the automated systems, BlueSkye Automation continues to provide ongoing support and service through their certified team of experts.

"Working with BlueSkye Automation, we were able to greatly increase this customer's picking efficiency and storage density," said Randy Randolph, director of channel partner sales at Geekplus. "Partnering with BlueSkye is extremely important, as it allows us to collaborate and bring that kind of game-changing improvement to customers."

Armando Gonzalez, president of BlueSkye Automation, added: "Our integrated solutions are all about making work more efficient and increasing productivity; with Geekplus, we can help our food and beverage, automotive, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and e-commerce customers leverage the benefits of autonomous mobile robots."
