  • Sorin David, supply chain director for Dr. Max Romania, said, “This type of technology in our e-commerce operations brings us a more efficient response for Romanian patients, including during overloaded periods, when the efficiency is expected to increase by 200 percent. Therefore, being recognized for the Healthcare and Pharma SCEA makes us proud of fulfilling our customer satisfaction, which is the most important for us.” David added that “we are working with Geekplus to replicate the success of this project in other Dr. Max warehouses in Europe with the wide range of Geekplus solutions.”

  • SCEA recognized Geekplus’s collaboration with Asda and AMH with the Unipart Logistics Digital Transformation Award and the prestigious Visku Team of the Year Award. Past winners of the team of the year award include the NHS supply chain team for its efforts distributing personal protective equipment after the outbreak of Covid-19. 


    “Winning another SCEA in a row is a very valuable recognition for our brand and shows the satisfaction for the great work done beside our partners,” said Lit Fung, VP and Managing Director, International Business at Geekplus. “ASDA and Dr. Max have trusted our Shelf-To-Person solution to improve their intralogistics operation at their warehouses. Our commitment is to deliver the quality they need to fulfil with their business operations.”  


    For these projects, Asda and Dr. Max utilized the Geekplus Shelf-to-Person system, its flagship mobile robotics solution. This solution is easy, scalable, and allows robots to be added or removed according to business fluctuations and facilitates warehouse relocation. This flexibility is a true asset during the peak season.

The awards are renowned for their rigorous judging process; entrants receive valuable feedback from award judges with more than 250 years of combined experience.
