Swisslog to provide AutoStore picking solution for US logistics firm

Swisslog Logistics Automation, a provider of software and warehouse automation systems, will implement its AutoStore goods-to-person picking solution for Syncreon – a specialized contract logistics company based in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Syncreon’s newly constructed, automated distribution center occupies 1,00,000ft² and will serve both e-commerce and retail fulfillment. Swisslog’s AutoStore solution combines intelligent SynQ warehouse management software and unique pick stations, helping Syncreon employees to increase throughput, reduce costs and improve performance. The new hub is scheduled to begin operations in June 2018.

David Minns, senior vice president, global procurement, for Syncreon, said, “We believe that a proven goods-to-person picking solution like AutoStore will be a perfect complement to our more conventional picking operations. We are particularly attracted to the easy scalability of AutoStore for our future growth. As a global company, we selected Swisslog as our implementation partner because of their strong global footprint and support organization.”

Markus Schmidt, president, Swisslog, warehouse and distribution solutions, Americas, said, “It’s exciting to see this technology really take off in the USA. American companies are rapidly adopting goods-to-person automation and turning to Swisslog because of our vast experience compared to other integrators.

“After installing more than 85 projects, our realization has been perfected to the point that our team can install in short timeframes while tailoring solutions that work for our diverse clientele in the e-commerce/retail, consumer goods and production logistics industries.”
