Reesink Logistic Solutions and Movu Robotics recently celebrated their partnership and joint projects throughout Europe. The companies spotlighted their warehouse automation projects in Germany and the Netherlands.

Reesink began as Lalesse Steel Construction in 1970. The Duiven, Netherlands-based company said it is an early adopter and integrator of automated warehouse technologies. It has previously worked with Geekplus Technologies.

Lokeren, Belgium-based Movu said it provides flexible automation for warehouses of all sizes. The company claimed that its autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), collaborative robots, and warehouse execution system (WES) are easy to deploy and can fit into existing facilities. It has collaborated with KPI Solutions.

Partners deploy warehouse automation for Weinig Group

Reesink Logistics Solutions and Movu Robotics cited their projects for the Weinig Group and G&S. They said these collaborations demonstrated their innovative approach to logistics challenges, including ventures into cold-store logistics.

The Weinig Group is well-known in Germany for its wood-processing technology. Reesink designed a compact and high-performance automated pallet and item storage and retrieval system to streamline the flow of parts, including semi-finished and finished products.

The system also enhances efficiency and reduces manual handling by using a Movu atlas pallet-shuttle system with an AutoStore automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS). Reesink said the project demonstrated the benefits of combining technologies into a unique system in the manufacturing and processing industry.

Robots change cold-storage logistics for B&S

Reesink and Movu said their project with consumer goods distributor B&S in the Netherlands involved a pallet-based, goods-to-person system that works in a cold-store environment.

Within this project, Movu combined its atlas pallet ASRS and ifollow AMRs, a pallet-conveying system, and Fast Pick Stations into one scalable system. Both the atlas shuttles and the ifollow AMRs can operate in temperatures ranging from -25ºC to 40ºC (-13ºF to 104ºF).

The companies said the goods-to-person system exemplifies how customers can use their technologies to meet the stringent requirements of temperature-controlled warehousing while ensuring operational excellence.

Reesink and Movu work toward warehousing’s future

“Our enduring partnership with Movu Robotics is instrumental in our mission to provide our customers with future-proof, next-level warehousing solutions maximizing their competitive position,” said Machiel van den Hazelkamp, commercial director at Reesink Logistic Solutions, in a release.

“The projects for the Weinig Group and B&S not only demonstrate our joint capability to tailor our standard products into unique solutions in response to our clients’ specific needs, but also highlight our commitment to advancing logistics technology in both standard and challenging environments like cold stores,” he added.

Reesink and Movu asserted that they are “pioneering the future of logistics by focusing on high-density storage, scalability, flexibility, sustainability, and the integration of advanced technologies.” The companies said they are shifting toward eco-efficient operations, ensuring that their systems can adapt to changing market demands using minimal space. 

By integrating their advanced technologies, Movu and Reesink said they are making warehouses more efficient, sustainable, and responsive.
