Swisslog has completed the design and implementation of a new Dubai-based automated warehouse facility. It uses its AutoStore automated material handling solutions for the Middle East telecom distributor, Axiom Telecom.
This completion of Axiom's new facility confirms Swisslog's leading position in logistics automation and increases its footprint in the region to more than a dozen major automated projects in just four years. Among the region's largest retailers and distributors, Axiom has more than 5,000 points of sale and 2,000 employees across the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
With a high volume of daily orders delivered across multiple channels, Axiom expects to provide speed, accuracy and a competitive service. According to Swisslog, the move to a new facility was part of Axiom's overall vision to continue to meet changing customer demands while driving down cost per unit. The telco chose this solution to deliver a higher level of automation which was designed specifically by Swisslog to fulfill Axiom's requirement of 25,000 deliveries at a low total cost of ownership.
Axiom's new warehouse is located at Dubai Silicon Oasis and includes a range of pioneering distribution solutions that gives it efficiency and enhanced operational flexibility with less manpower.
Swisslog's solution consists of the AutoStore automated storage and picking system, QuickMove motorised light good conveyor and SynQ warehouse management software. AutoStore is an innovative material handling solution that uses robots on top of an aluminium grid system to store and locate goods. For Axiom, the AutoStore system will consist of nine robots and five picking stations, providing storage space for 12,500 bins.
