The Geek+ Solution

Geek+ worked collaboratively with Körber Supply Chain to optimize throughput and increase storage capacity in Ariat's 1 million sq. ft warehouse. Integrating with K. Motion Warehouse Advantage (WMS), 88 Geek+ picking robots and 2,000 racks helped Ariat to achieve greater operational speed and end-customer experience. After its initial order, Ariat expanded the solution with an additional 30 picking robots.
