Packsize and 6 River Systems Collaborate on Next-generation Warehouse Automation Technology
Increase productivity by integrating robotics and On Demand Packaging systems
Tuesday, March 10, 2020
ATLANTA — March 9, 2020 — Multinational On Demand Packaging® technology leader Packsize will showcase packaging made smarter through a next-gen integration with leading fulfillment solution provider 6 River Systems at MODEX booth #8832 in Atlanta. The demonstration will highlight the placement of accelerated automation in the warehouse and provide tips for attaining flexible packaging solutions in retail locations.
Representing a ship-from-store environment, a Packsize iQ3 will combine with 6 River Systems' collaborative mobile robot called Chuck. By integrating directly into a company's warehouse management system, right-sized cartons can be created and paired with Chuck to help operators minimize walking while ensuring a sustainable box for every order. The collaboration can make labor more efficient and reduce material and shipping-related costs, all while optimizing fulfillment in a small footprint.
According to joint customer Larry Emmert, VP of Operations at Legend Valve," Our integrated solution with Packsize and 6 River Systems has had an immediate positive impact on our productivity, packaging, and transportation costs. We would not have realized these improvements without a tightly integrated solution delivered from both of these partners."
While meeting the increased focus on systems integration—a key theme for leading fulfillment operations in 2020—Packsize also highlights this week a broad mix of next-gen automation capabilities available from the company's full-spectrum portfolio of On Demand Packaging solutions.
