Automation in logistics provides great benefits in reducing the overall business operation costs. 3PL offers integrated logistic solutions, including storage, distribution, and cross-docking of goods. Short-term contracts with their customers require high performance solutions improving scalability and goods traceability. One of the major automation advantages is the ability to reduce arduous working conditions by eliminating and replacing low value-added tasks.
BALYO has developed a scalable solution for logistics distribution, integrating into existing infrastructure. Using WMS, BALYO robots can manage load transports, storage, cross-docking or any tasks which may streamline the supply chain process. Robotics today, must not only serve as a strict tool to increase efficiency, but also reduce the cost of customer operations.
> Offsetting workforce deficiencies through automation
> Selecting scalable solutions without infrastructural revamp
> Optimizing storage/shelf height for a higher pallet density
> Increased throughput and goods traceability
> Handling different types of loads
> Define logistics safety as a key performance indicator
- ROI Benefits: Greater benefits with rigorous demands
- Efficiency: Streamlining workload
- Quality: Increased job accuracy
HOW BALYO WORKS IN 3PL INDUSTRY?
An example of a typical application flow in 3PL industry would be:
> A Driven by BALYO robot picking pallets from inbound lanes/unloading area and dropping to a conveyor area.
> Alternatively, a Driven by BALYO robot can also be used for picking pallets from inbound lanes/unloading area and dropping to a restock packaging area.
> From these areas, BALYO can deploy robots to transfer the final products to outbound lanes from where it is taken out of the warehouse area.
The Automotive industry has always been a pioneer in automation. Facing a decrease in traditional car markets, and an increase in electric and “greener” vehicle sales, the automotive industry needs to find new ways to reinvent its production model. The emerging monthly rental market pushes this industry towards a higher level of automation and integration to leverage cost and cars maintainability.
BALYO has developed a large portfolio of robots and services to match this increasing need. From supply and removal to/from the production chain, such as stamping and forming chains, dock loading/unloading, to storage of spare parts, assembly lines (body shop, paint shop, Integration of WMS, KPIs.). Automation must serve a strict production process where speed to market, just-in in-time and cost management are the key factors of success.
> Highly flexible solution without additional infrastructure
> Data driven production with full integration
> Increased operator safety
> Supply chain digitalization: Improved quality, overall effectiveness, speed and reliability
> Reassignment of labors to optimize tasks, supported by new technologies
> Adaptable production tools
- Safety: Secure operations
- Profitability: Decrease in labor costs
- Quality: Less damages
HOW BALYO WORKS IN AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY
An example of a typical application flow in automotive industry would be:
> A Driven by BALYO Stacker carrying materials from foundry to a quality control area.
> Driven by BALYO also deploys tugger trucks to transfer materials from stamping to say, a cutting area.
> In a mounting chain line, driven by BALYO pallet trucks are used to move pallets from inbound areas to other shops (Example: Welding).
Smart warehouses today make use of IoT enabled solutions for real-time visibility during operations. This is the base for automation, and it comes down to improved solutions for warehouse management. Today, E-commerce industry needs to tackle the demand of customers, availability, quick delivery of goods and improve logistics efficiency. By leveraging the benefits of robotics, E-commerce companies can manage the order fulfillment process, streamline omnichannel business and improve throughput and autonomy.
BALYO has developed a large portfolio of robots and services to match these needs. From logistics distribution, cross-docking, packaging, streamlining of supply chain processes and providing added value services with integrated ERP solutions. Automation today, must not only serve as a strict tool to increase efficiency, it must also reduce cost for customer needs.
> Offsetting workforce deficiencies through automation
> Handle diverse SKUs
> Use of robots in the warehouse to increase efficiency and accuracy in picking and packing process
> Automating the supply chain process
- Long Term Economic Benefits: Lesser operating cost for high demand
- Competitive advantage: Pioneers in industry 4.0
- Safer Operations: Operator safety of paramount importance
HOW BALYO WORKS IN E-COMMERCE INDUSTRY
An example of a typical application flow in E-Commerce industry would be:
> A Driven by BALYO robot transferring unusually bulky loads, or loads with indifferent sizes.
> A driven by BALYO robot can be used to transfer pallets from inbound receiving to end of aisles/racks.
> Alternatively, they can be brought autonomously to a repackaging area and then further transferred to outbound storage area within the facility.
Staying one step ahead is vital for the majority of the Fast Moving Consumer Goods companies, while the rise of the internet is increasing pressure on prices, depth of range, product availability and customer loyalty. High levels of SKU rotation and the global push for supply chain optimization, drive the consumer goods industry to implement automation in order to maximize efficiency and streamline inventory levels.
BALYO has developed a broad portfolio of robots and services to accommodate FMCG growing needs. From transportation consolidation, cross-docking, protection against contingencies, smoothing of the supply chain and creation of additional value, automation not only serves as a strict tool to increase efficiency but also reduces operational costs.
> Increased throughput and traceability of goods
> Increased demand of ERP/WMS systems
> Optimization with minimal need for infrastructure revamp
> Highly flexible and customizable solution for fast changing environments
> Omnichannel distribution with short delivery time
> Investments into IOT and data
> High rotation of stocks
- Profitability: Low labor costs
- Efficiency: Optimizing warehouse operations
- Competitive advantage: Pioneer in industry 4.0
HOW BALYO WORKS IN CONSUMER GOODS INDUSTRY?
An example of a typical application flow in FMCG industry would be:
> A Driven by BALYO robot picking pallets and dropping them off to a packaging area.
> A driven by BALYO counterbalanced stacker can be deployed to transfer pallets from a conveyor to flow racks.
> In the same loop, a Driven by BALYO can also be used to bring back empty pallets from the flow racks back onto the conveyor area.
> Driven by BALYO increases operational efficiency with the help of robotic reach trucks used in distribution centers for racking.
