Shelf-to-person solution for eComm firm

28 February 2024

GEEKPLUS HAS partnered with sporting goods retailer Alpen to bring its Shelf-to-Person solution to the company’s new 33,000 sq m e-commerce warehouse in Western Japan. 

The facility, located in Inazawa City, Aichi Prefecture, is expected to go live this Spring. This phased expansion adds to Geekplus’ existing work with Alpen at its facility in Eastern Japan. Alpen first began using 56 flagship Geekplus Goods-to-Person robots in its Eastern Japan e-commerce centre in 2018. As its business grew, Alpen scaled up to 216 robots in the 23,000 sq m facility, achieving a 4x efficiency improvement and doubling storage capacity while shortening delivery lead time.

In the Shelf-to-Person solution, Geekplus robots carry shelves of goods to workers at picking stations instead of requiring employees to walk through the facility, searching for each product. The solution provides high flexibility, easy deployment, and high throughput with a short implementation period.
