Supply chains are becoming increasingly complex. Along with more products, suppliers and distribution channels to meet heightening consumer expectations, businesses are faced with global labor challenges. New and emerging technologies, such as robotics, can help. However, many businesses struggle with implementation, integration, maintenance, training, and costs. Together, Körber and Fetch overcome these challenges.

Under the strategic partnership, Körber will act as a global reseller, advisor, and integrator of Fetch’s AMR solutions and cloud robotics software. Fetch will benefit from Körber’s depth of expertise, including 1,300 in-house professionals and nearly 100 strategic partners across the globe. This assures AMRs are integrated with a sound supply chain strategy – working in tandem with new and existing staff, material handling equipment, and technology.

“Our partnership with Fetch Robotics allows us to extend the automation opportunity for our customers across the wide range of workflows involved in material movements in the warehouse,” said John Santagate, vice president of robotics at Körber Supply Chain – software. “Fetch has a strong portfolio of mobile robots that, when combined with the extensive supply chain knowledge and commitment to innovation at Körber, creates an optimized approach to flexible automation.”

Additionally, there is a future opportunity for integration with Körber’s breadth of supply chain solutions, such as voice and warehouse management systems, to enhance fulfillment, picking, replenishment and beyond. The result is a truly flexible automation platform – providing immediate value by simplifying operations, maximizing productivity and making the most of capacity.

“Körber’s relationship with Fetch is ‘collaborative innovation,'” said Sean Elliott, chief technology officer for Körber Supply Chain – software. “Together, we make supply chain complexity a strategic differentiator. We turn challenges into opportunities to deliver on our customers’ requirements like no one else in the industry.”

“Fetch’s AMR solutions provide almost immediate payback,” said Barry Phillips, chief marketing officer at Fetch Robotics. “Our AMRs can be fully operational in just days instead of weeks or months across the widest array of distribution and fulfillment operations – including piece picking, case picking, and pallet building. Combining Fetch’s quick time to value and broad portfolio of AMR types along with Körber’s expertise, global network, and comprehensive offerings is a game-changer. It builds on our dedication to helping customers now and as they grow.”
