Swisslog delivers robot-based warehouse system for Axiom Telecom


September 3, 2019 | By RetailME Bureau

Global warehouse automation specialist, Swisslog has completed a major project for Middle East-based retailer Axiom Telecom. Swisslog has created a new Dubai-based automated warehouse facility for Axiom with AutoStore.

Axiom has more than 5,000 points of sale and 2,000 employees across the UAE and Saudi Arabia. With a high volume of daily orders delivered across multiple channels and a demanding customer base, Axiom is expected to provide speed, accuracy and competitive service. The move to a new facility was part of Axiom’s overall vision to continue to meet the changing customer demands, while driving down cost per unit. In reviewing its options, Axiom selected Swisslog’s AutoStore solution to deliver a higher level of automation compared to its conventional warehousing system. The solution deployed was designed to fulfill Axiom’s requirement of 25,000 deliveries and provided a compelling total cost of ownership.

The new warehouse located in Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) includes a range of pioneering distribution solutions that will give Axiom enhanced operational flexibility and efficiency with less manpower.

The Swisslog AutoStore solution consists of an automated storage and picking system AutoStore, motorised lights goods conveyor QuickMove and SynQ Warehouse Management Software. AutoStore is an innovative automated material handling solution that uses robots on top of an aluminium grid system to store and locate goods, efficiently delivering them to pick stations for processing.

For Axiom, the AutoStore system will consist of nine robots and five picking stations, providing storage space for 12,500 bins. Ten gravity shipping lanes ensure efficient order consolidation for both store and home delivery.

“Swisslog is uniquely well-placed to deliver the technology convergence and deep integration necessary to facilitate omni-channel, multi-modal movements across the supply chain – of which warehousing is a critical component. The recent installation is a testament to our dedication to innovation and has helped Axiom deliver an efficient and accurate service for its customers,” said Alain Kaddoum, general manager of Swisslog Middle East.

Currently eight AutoStore projects already live in the Middle East. “Our first Swisslog AutoStore solution went live in the region in June 2016, with number increasing to eight in just three years. The project for Axiom demonstrates the ongoing success of AutoStore in the region,” Kaddoum added.
