Global online retailer YesAsia has teamed-up with Geek+ to build YesAsia’s first smart warehouse at Goodman Interlink, one of the world’s tallest warehouse facilities located in Tsing Yi, Hong Kong. This will be the largest number of AMRs deployed in any single Hong Kong e-commerce warehouse.
The brand-new YesAsia smart fulfilment centre will be located at Goodman Interlink in Tsing Yi, Hong Kong, and equipped with 145 AMRs from Geek+. This is the first partnership between the three parties.
“YesAsia understands the importance of staying ahead of the game in the face of ‘new norms’,” commented Joshua Lau, CEO of YesAsia. “This move reflects our commitment to reforming our supply chain to provide the best possible logistics services to our valuable customers.”
The change is expected to be fully integrated by July 2022 to commence service for YesAsia’s global customer base in the second half of the year. To enable this smart fulfilment centre, Goodman Group provides well-located warehouses that are designed to accommodate the latest robotics and technology, not only to ensure a more efficient supply chain, but also faster and more flexible delivery of goods. The smart warehouse is conveniently located in the logistics hotspot of Hong Kong which is adjacent to Container Terminal 9, Stonecutters Bridge, with easy access to Hong Kong International Airport.
The YesAsia smart fulfilment centre will implement Geek+’s goods-to-persons solutions. After receiving orders, the AMRs will automatically pass the goods to warehouse operators for an overall fulfilment process that is more accurate and highly efficient. The centre is expected to handle over one million orders within its first year of operation for both YesAsia.com and YesStyle.com customers around the world.
