Yusen Logistics chooses Swisslog for automated warehouse solution in Singapore

Yusen Logistics has selected Swisslog to deliver an AutoStore automated system for a warehouse in Singapore. The solution, which utilises autonomous robots which sit on the top of an aluminum grid as part of the innovative storage system, is expected to go into operation in 2017.

“The future of logistics is paved with innovation and automated technology,” said Francis Kwa, Head of Contract Logistics, Yusen Logistics. “The industry has been transforming and growing in the coming years. The third party logistics industry itself is gearing up to take on the challenges and the opportunities offered by the latest technological advancements.”

A joint effort between Yusen Logistics and Swisslog, the Tuas Warehouse will be equipped with the innovative AutoStore system to serve multiple customers under one roof and to cater to its growing needs. Swisslog will be responsible for the implementation of the AutoStore System that includes approximately 16,595 space for stored items.

“This investment enables Yusen to deliver five times more put-away and retrieval throughput without increasing current operating headcount cost,” added Kwa. “Storage volume is doubled in the same storage space in the warehouse. Doubling the volume of storage capacity within the current footprint coupled with productivity gains is the means to gain a competitive edge in a global economy that is being disrupted by technology.
