The biggest e-commerce company in the world, Alibaba (well known as Alibaba.com), is busy optimizing its technology at several distribution centers. They started with four DC's in Shanghai and one in Ningbo, China. Alibaba decided to partner with system integrator Inther in order to improve efficiency within their intralogistics.
All these Alibaba DC's will be automated with vertical lifts and several hundred meters of conveyor.
Inther Logistics Technology Co., Ltd is currently busy implementing the systems, which will be managed by Warehouse Control System Inther LC.
