Australia’s largest ecommerce fulfilment provider, eStore Logistics has opened another fulfilment centre in Ravenhall, Victoria, taking its warehousing footprint to over 100,000 square metres across the country.

The warehouse is equipped with 75 AI powered Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) working in tandem with specialist staff to speed up deliveries. The AMRs will handle up to 40,000 orders each day and the stock picking process will be up to four times faster than a traditional warehouse.

Expected to be fully operation by September 2021, the warehouse will also facilitate three-hour delivery for ecommerce orders that come in as late as 4pm.

This is eStore Logistics’ third fulfilment centre featuring the AI powered AMR picking technology and increases its fleets to over 250 robots. It will support the growth of key retail players such as MyDeal and Bensons.

eStore Logistics managing director, Leigh Williams said, “We are thrilled to announce the opening of our seventh ecommerce fulfilment site. Automated robots have already significantly sped up the picking and packing process for our customers. However, what’s more phenomenal is that these AI-powered robots are constantly learning.

“Automated warehousing takes customer satisfaction to a whole new level, allowing us to improve efficiency and ultimately democratise fast delivery for businesses of all sizes. As we scale, we’ll continue to invest in technology that grows and evolves to meet the increasing demands of the ecommerce industry.”
