Geek+, a manufacturer of autonomous mobile robots for warehouses, has agreed a new distribution partnership with Kuecker Logistics Group, a material handling systems integrator.

The two companies will work together to provide smart logistics solutions to customers across North America.

Geek+ has built up an extensive portfolio of successful cases across industries and a wide variety of artificial intelligence-driven robotics solutions.

It says its partnership with KLG will enable an upgrade of the system integrator’s already broad range of services, from supply chain management and industrial automation to lifecycle services and more.

Rick DeFiesta, director of business development and partnership at Geek+, says: “We are happy to be partnering up with an experienced integrator whose customer-first mentality has earned them a good reputation throughout North America, and are confident that the customized smart robotics solutions of Geek+ will leverage KLG’s know-how in the material handling industry.”

Jim Kuecker, vice president of systems at KLG, says: “We look forward to working together to offer our customers a flexible and robust portfolio of technologically advanced robotics solutions for logistics, and recognize the ability of Geek+ to design and build systems that, not only bring advantages of increased throughput and storage capacity, but reduces the overall reliance on labor, mitigating against various warehousing costs and logistics bottlenecks.”

The companies at the distribution agreement allows KLG to offer Geek+ robotics solutions to improve efficiency, provide flexibility, and reduce costs associated with warehouse and logistics operations.

The partners say this is especially in regard to fast-growing industries, such as e-commerce and online retail, often subject to an overall need for solutions that can enable businesses to meet higher customer expectations, flexibly scale operations and meet fluctuations in demand.
