SINGAPORE, January 31, 2023 – Geek+, the global leader in mobile robotic solutions for logistics, has successfully implemented a multi-robot goods-to-person system at Singaporean pet supply distributor Asia PetWorld’s fulfillment center to support its international expansion. The system was implemented in just 12 weeks. Using the Geek+ automated storage and retrieval system, Asia PetWorld is able to distribute its products to its growing customer base around Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America with over 99% order fulfillment accuracy.


Globally, the pet care market has grown to $261 billion (USD) in 2022; up from $245 billion in 2021, with this figure expected to grow to $350 billion by 2027, with the Asia Pacific region expecting an increase of 9.3%.* As a global supplier of pet products, Asia PetWorld handles over 8,000 SKUs in a variety of sizes and weights every day.

With stocks differing greatly, from small and light items, such as dog collars, to sacks of dog food that can weigh more than 15 kilograms per bag, Asia PetWorld needed an adaptable solution that can respond to a variety of tasks. The Geek+ goods-to-person picking system, with sophisticated algorithms and robots with a maximum payload of 1000kg, can easily handle heavy pet food bags, animal enclosures, and large pet bedding and maintain a safe and healthy working environment for their employees.


Alvin Yap, Head of South East Asia at Geek+, said: “We are delighted to see our smart picking solution increase Asia PetWorld's competitiveness in the demanding pet industry. This digital transformation helps them offer improved service to their customers in terms of efficiency and accuracy. We expect several more businesses in the region to adopt our solutions due to the gains in efficiency and flexibility they represent.”

Sebastian Wiradharma, Director of Asia PetWorld, said: “In Singapore, the labor availability is always a challenge for warehouse owners. The situation is even worse for the pet industry where workers often need to manage heavy, awkward items. After adopting the Geek+ robots, we are better able to handle our stocks and can offer a more comfortable workplace to our employees.”

Geek+ set up its ASEAN headquarters in Singapore last year to serve the region with a whole team on-site, from pre-sales to after sales.
