Priscilla Chu, Founder & Chairperson of YesAsia, said, “As an e-commerce company that serves global customers, we experienced an exceptional spike in demand during the pandemic, which led us to invest in the AMRs offered by Geek+. We’ve since seen huge improvements in fulfillment accuracy and speed, with significant cost savings. It is impressive – the whole process was very smooth and took less than 16 weeks, from planning to deployment, to install over 100 AMRs in our warehouse.”
The smart logistics solution enables significant improvement in the accuracy and efficiency of the pick and pack process.
