Active Ants enlisted Groenewout’s expertise for support with the conceptual design decisions and supplier selection for its e-fulfilment center in Roosendaal. Groenewout helped Active Ants with the realization in terms of both logistics and construction-related aspects. An Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) solution was chosen for transporting boxes in order to minimize the number of conveyors.
The solution combines optimal scalability and flexibility with the lowest cost price. The project also investigated the implementation of automatic packaging machines.
“Groenewout did a fantastic job in supporting us during the realization of this new facility in Roosendaal. I’d especially like to thank Dirk Becks,” states Jeroen Dekker, Managing Partner of Active Ants.
