London, November 9, 2023 — Movu Robotics, one of the industry-leading warehouse automation and robotics suppliers, proudly announces it was exclusively granted “The Best Use of Robotics” award at the "Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2023". The Awards, recognized as the gold standard for best practices in supply chain management, is bestowed upon organizations that exemplify excellence and innovation in the field. This year, with nearly 300 entries from over 150 unique companies, it had more entrants than ever before. This accolade, presented at the prestigious award ceremony held on November 9th in London, marks Movu's outstanding contributions to supply chain innovation and excellence. Movu's achievement underscores its commitment to pushing the boundaries of warehouse automation and robotics.
A distinguished jury of internationally renowned experts from the logistics industry awarded Movu for its groundbreaking project for the customer Dematra, a pioneering logistics services company. This visionary project, a shining example of the pinnacle of automated technology in warehousing, showcases a commitment to redefining the future of warehousing and distribution. At the heart of the project stands the awe-inspiring 46-meter-tall stow Silo, a revolutionary fully automated high-bay warehouse. This technological marvel has the capacity to effortlessly house nearly 80,000 pallets and can handle an impressive 12,000 pallet movements within a 24-hour timeframe — an international premiere in warehouse automation. Key to the success of the project are the Movu atlas shuttles, self-powered 2D-pallet carriers ingeniously designed for optimal movement and organization of pallets. These shuttles work seamlessly with the specially designed stow shuttle-rack system and the local controlling system (STC).
Jos De Vuyst, CEO of stow Group, expressed his pride in this achievement, stating, "We are truly honored to receive the Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2023. Our collaboration with Dematra and the joint efforts of the stow and Movu teams have resulted in a highly successful project that not only demonstrates the future of warehousing but elevates it to unprecedented heights. The Dematra project exemplifies Movu's vision to upgrade warehouses globally with easier automation, pushing the boundaries of what is achievable in the world of warehousing”.
Movu remains at the forefront of innovation, committed to transforming the warehouse landscape with accessible and easier automation through which it sets new standards in automation and robotics.
