Automation of logistic processes


Current logistic processes require execution speed and accuracy close to 100%. Increasing the importance of e-commerce in the usual logistics flows, makes the importance of automating logistics processes increase. IDTotal supports you in implementing systems that automate moving, sorting, transport, and picking of products in any industry.

Increasing productivity beyond human capacity

Increasing human productivity has been achieved in many industries through training, digitalization, streamlining the placement of products, but no matter how much is invested in this direction, there is a limitation given by human nature that can not be overcome. Capacity building is also problematic, because it involves a long cycle of recruitment, training, efficiency, and human resources are becoming more expensive and harder to find. This is where industrial robots come in, which have the ability to increase the productivity of logistics processes for goods with rates between 200-300%, without significant changes in current logistics spaces.

Implementation of robotic logistics systems (autonomous robots)

IDTOTAL supports you in the implementation of fully automated systems for picking, transporting, sorting and placing products in the field of logistics of consumer products, cosmetics, textiles, electronics, specialized, etc. By implementing this system that is based on autonomous robots (AGV = Automated Guided Vehicles), companies active in the fields of B2B, B2C, e-commerce, logistics, production, logistics services (Third Party Logistics – 3PL) can increase their productivity by up to at 300% and the accuracy can reach over 99.7% (depending on the type of products, industry, processes).

Who needs these services?

The implementation of automated logistics systems can be done in any organization that works with stocks, both in the field of logistics – B2B, B2C, 3PL, and in the field of production but also in other sectors of activity (hospitals, government organizations, etc.).

In what types of spaces can logistics robots be implemented?

Automated systems based on autonomous robots can be implemented in any storage, production or logistics space. In general, these are spaces that do not involve public access, but only the company’s staff, but there are also implementations in which autonomous robots can transport products in spaces with public access (such as hospitals).

What changes are needed to allow the installation of logistics robots?

The installation of automated systems of autonomous robots does not involve modifying the existing space but only adaptations to allow their movement and integration into the company’s IT infrastructure. From the point of view of the electrical installation, no power changes are required, as the system can operate under normal conditions of access to the electrical network.

Is a WMS (Warehouse Management System) required to be able to operate autonomous robots?

The automated system based on autonomous robots has its own command and control system, which must be integrated with the customer’s IT systems, to take over orders for picking, sorting, transport, etc. The system can be integrated with any existing WMS system or can be integrated directly with the ERP you operate.

How many robots is needed for 1000 sqm of storage?

The number of stand-alone logistics robots required for an implementation is calculated based on several factors such as: number of orders per day, number of lines processed per day, number of total SKUs, number of active SKUs per day, and so on The surface of the warehouse can be a limiting factor, but it is not possible to calculate a robot need only depending on the surface. In general, an implementation starts from 3 robots and can go up to 20-30 or more, depending on the indicators of automated processes.

How long does it take to implement the system?

The implementation of a system based on autonomous robots can take between 3 and 6 months, including the pilot project stage and integration into their own IT systems. After completing the pilot project and integrating the corrections / modifications found necessary, scaling the system by adding additional robots can be done very quickly in 1-2 weeks, so that you can quickly adapt to peak periods (Black Friday, Christmas, campaigns, etc.).

How much does a complete system of industrial robots cost and how long can I recover the investment?

The cost of such a system includes, in addition to autonomous robots and ancillary equipment (charging stations, network equipment, picking stations, troubleshooting equipment, etc.), but also specific servers, adapted picking stations, licenses and software services. We can calculate a complete offer based on a questionnaire that we will fill in the analysis stage.
From the point of view of return on investment (ROI or Return on Investment), according to the experiences of users of such systems, return on investment can be achieved in 3-12 months, depending on the type of products served, the type of orders placed, profit margins , etc.
