Geekplus, which has held the top market share in Japan for four consecutive years in automated guided vehicles (AGV), is going with the Boomi AtomSphere Platform to automate its next generation smart logistics platform.
Geekplus was established in Japan in 2017 as a joint venture between Beijing Geekplus Technology Company Limited, a unicorn company with the world’s largest market share in autonomous mobile robots (AMR) and Japanese capital. The company contributes to improving the corporate value of logistics companies by providing services such as sales, installation, 24/7/365 maintenance and productivity improvement consulting.
With customers in retail, apparel, pharmaceuticals, automotive, lithium batteries, photovoltaics, electronics and more in thousands of locations worldwide, and approximately a hundred in Japan, Geekplus wanted to expand and generate new revenue streams to lead the company into its next phase of growth.
Leveraging its strengths in the supply chain industry, the company is working to build a smart logistics platform in-house for its network of shippers and third-party logistics (3PL) providers. Faced with the complexity of various data formats and the introduction of technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), Geekplus needed a tool to simplify and streamline the integration of all its applications and data.
“We are aiming to co-create a new logistics standard by utilizing next-generation robotics technology to solve the increasingly serious labor shortage in Japan and the gap between the growth of e-commerce demand and the growth of physical volume,” said Yusuke Arima, System Development Group, Geekplus.
“After evaluating various integration platforms, Geekplus chose Boomi’s intelligent, low-code, cloud-native platform for its versatility, development speed and ease of use. The Boomi platform will enable us to connect our operations with our shippers, suppliers and partners, while mitigating potential real-time supply chain issues.”
“Geekplus is shaping the smart logistics revolution and needed a unified integration solution to remove complexities,” said Kazunori Hori, Director, Japan at Boomi. “Our platform provides a single conduit of data sets across all technologies and processes throughout their global partner network, allowing Geekplus to quickly and easily connect with its shipping and 3PLs’ operating and warehouse systems.”Click below to share this article
