Published: Saturday, May 15, 2021

Intralogistics expert Swisslog is set to host an around-the-world automation tour of some of its most prominent customer sites this year.

Several big names are already billed as part of the World Automation Tour 2021 line-up, with further tour dates to be announced throughout the year.

Each show will kick off with a meet and greet with a Swisslog logistics consultant and on-site engineer, who will be equipped to walk attendees around a live automated solution.

Throughout each demo, participants will experience automation in action from a customer’s perspective, and get questions answered in real time.

Whether the tour is hosted from Berlin, London, Barcelona, Sydney, New York or Shanghai, forward-thinking businesses can register for any or all the available tour dates. Customer showcases will include ASDA in the UK, Rewe in Germany, Trinchero in the US, Coca-Cola in Sydney as well as a sneak behind the scenes tour of one of Swisslog’s factories producing the renowned Vectura crane, in Sweden.

The ASDA IDC in Lutterworth, home to the largest AutoStore installation in the UK will be the opening show of the World Automation Tour 2021, allowing the leading retailer to pick at twice the rate with 99.8% accuracy. Stacked on top of one another, the bins inside ASDA’s AutoStore system measure 17.8 times higher than the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
