Efacec Singapore (Efacec), part of Körber Logistics Systems, is proud to announce two separate partnerships with leading Asian banking institutions in the region. Working with an existing partner and a new client, the projects demonstrate Efacec’s versatility in catering to different requirements of warehouse expansion and modification for the financial services industry.
“The success of both projects confirms Efacec’s ability to adapt its warehousing solutions for a client’s specific requirements,” shared Jorge Couto, Managing Director at Efacec. “Due to the tight security measures, warehousing specifications for the banking industry is more complex. It’s important to have reliable warehousing equipment that can integrate with advanced security systems.”
In a follow-on contract with one of Asia’s leading banks, Efacec was recently engaged to integrate seven additional units of its Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) into an existing network to support the client’s expansion plans. These AGVs will join the client’s current suite of automated warehousing technologies from Efacec, including an Automatic Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) warehouse for the storage of 10,000 containers, four stacker cranes, seven units of AGVs, and 20 warehouse terminal stations.
Fully automated, the facility has been operating efficiently since the initial project completion in 1997. Right from the beginning, Efacec has stationed two full-time engineers onsite, which has been a major factor in the smooth running of the warehouse for nearly 20 years. With the new fleet of AGVs, the client is expected to achieve greater warehouse performance.
