SEOUL -- Doosan Logistics Solutions, a unit of South Korea's Doosan Group, has forged a strategic partnership with Norway's AutoStore, which provides a robotic cube-based, automated storage and retrieval system, to set up a premium product lineup for warehouse storage.
The deal came after Doosan Logistics Solutions (DLS) agreed to introduce a shuttle-type storage system from Austria's KNAPP. DLS said it would use two storage systems to meet customer demands of various sizes from large logistics centers to small and medium-sized e-commerce and third-party logistics outsourcing companies.
AutoStore's cube-type storage system has advantages such as space efficiency due to high loading density, low investment cost, easy expansion, and fast speed. It is effective in establishing ecommerce and a micro fulfillment center (MFC), which refers to small downtown distribution centers that require high efficiency.
DLS has signed a software technology partnership with Made4net, a U.S. supplier of warehouse management systems that integrally manage warehousing, inventory, picking, and forwarding and support optimal and efficient inventory management by closely monitoring and controlling inventory flow in real time.
"Through a series of partnerships with companies with the world's best technologies, we will become a differentiated company in the field of logistics automation solutions with reliable products and services," DLS CEO Kim Hwan-sung said in a statement on May 30. "We will expand an opportunity to win orders by improving the accuracy and efficiency of logistics management while meeting the needs of various customers."
