Dematic to help Australian grocery retailer install robotic order fulfillment system

October 31, 2018 – Dematic, a supplier of integrated automated technology, software and services to optimize the supply chain, announced plans to implement a robotic order fulfillment system for Drakes Supermarkets, an independent grocery retailer based in Australia. The robotic system will be used to piece pick inventory items for retail store replenishment using a “goods-to-robot” configuration. The order fulfillment system will support replenishment of approximately 50 retail stores and is scheduled to start up during the 2nd quarter of 2019 in a new distribution center building.

The Dematic robotic order fulfillment system will optimize the retail store replenishment process for the grocery store chain. The robotic system is designed to minimize the time to pick orders, ensure order accuracy for a wide range of order profiles, and reduce the reliance on the warehouse labor.

A Dematic RapidPICK Goods-to-Person (GTP) piece picking system will be implemented along with the robotic piece picking sub-system at the Drakes Supermarkets distribution and logistics center. In addition, the Dematic Multishuttle inventory storage, buffering and sequencing sub-system will perform as the pick engine for both goods-to-person and goods-to-robot piece picking.
