Material handling and sorting solutions provider Fives has teamed up with Israel’s Caja Robotics as part of its ongoing development strategy to expand its piece picking offering in Europe.

Caja Robotics offers robotic and flexible goods-to-person solutions for fulfilment centres, while Fives offers a wide range of automated parcel handling technologies for smart parcel distribution.

The two companies explained that Caja’s products are complementary to Fives’ technology portfolio and through their integration Fives will be able to broaden its dedicated micro-fulfilment offering, particularly in the apparel and footwear market.

For Caja Robotics, the partnership will give the firm increased exposure to the southern European market, where Fives holds a strong presence.

“Proactively develop solutions”

“Automated distribution centres are a competitive advantage for mastering the challenges of the future,” said Massimiliano Fochetti, Global EVP of Sales and Marketing for Fives’ Smart Automation Solutions Division. “Our customers also see it that way, which is why we want to proactively develop solutions together with Caja Robotics to meet their needs.”

Ilan Cohen, Chairman and CEO of Caja Robotics, added: “We are glad to have found in Fives a partner that attaches great importance to further development of our solution. At the same time, we benefit from Fives’ sales force, which is essential for our expansion on the European market.”

Flexible robotics

Caja Robotics’s solution has been specifically designed for the flexible and scalable automation of warehouse logistics operations, which combines powerful robots, intelligently planned picking stations and AI-supported software.

Controlled by Caja’s cloud-based advanced fleet management, the robots move cartons and bins between the picking stations and the shelves and thus constantly optimise goods management and the entire warehouse operation.

Caja’s warehouse technology can be easily adapted to the existing warehouse structure, could readapt later with the changing needs, and is flexible enough to handle peaks in orders.

The solution is particularly suited to the specific requirements of industries with fluctuating throughput figures, such as e-commerce and retail logistics.
