Swisslog to deliver another AutoStore to Bring Parcels’ major venture in Copenhagen

In early 2021, Swisslog signed a framework agreement with Bring Parcels for the supply of warehouse automation for the logistics company’s new fulfillment solution “Shelfless”.

A decision has now been made to build the fully automated fulfillment solution also in Køge outside Copenhagen.

It is now clear that Bring will build its third automated AutoStore facility, this time in Køge outside Copenhagen. The facility is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023. The service already operates in Oslo and a facility is under construction in Stockholm.

Rickard Slettmyr, responsible for the establishment of Shelfless in the Nordic region, says: “At our new fully automated warehouse, we will use an AutoStore solutions from our automation partner Swisslog.

“The majority of deliveries will be made by CO2-neutral vehicles, just a few hours after the customer has ordered their goods online. With this major Nordic venture, we will offer both faster and greener deliveries to end recipients.”

The new fully automated warehousing solution will be the fourth of its kind to be established in the Nordic region in cooperation with Swisslog.

We are extremely proud and honoured to have been chosen as partner for Brings’ offensive warehouse automation.

It is a great trust we have received and we will do our utmost to meet Brings’ high expectations, says Christian Walby, sales manager for AutoStore at Swisslog.

Swisslog’s framework agreement with Bring extends over five years and means that Swisslog will supply all AutoStore solutions to Bring’s Nordic facilities.

Under the current framework agreement, the total number of projected bins for the next three years is approximately 500,000 to be installed in Bring’s Nordic logistics facilities.

The delivery to Bring Shelfless Køge consists of an AutoStore with 48,000 bins, 70 R5-redline robots, 18 ports with pick-to-light technology and Swisslog’s SynQ AutoStore Software.
