Matthews shows integrated order fulfillment with AMRs

By DC Velocity Staff

Matthews Automation Solutions showed off its "Fulfillment Forward" integrated order fulfillment process, featuring components from the company's three warehouse automation brands: Compass Engineering, Lightning Pick, and Pyramid. The system combines pick-to-light, put walls, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), conveyor controls, and order finishing automation with print-and-apply labeling, all managed by advanced warehouse execution software (WES).

The AMRs rely on navigation technology from the portfolio of Guidance Automation, the British logistics automation specialist acquired by Matthews in 2017, Sales Manager Bernie McCabe said. According to Matthews, users can apply Fulfillment Forward to optimize their order fulfillment tasks—such as picking, sortation, packing, and finishing—to enable rapid-response fulfillment centers and enhance their operations in e-commerce and omnichannel.
