The new 3-year partnership aims to carry out the annual inventory of a site located in northern France, thanks to the innovative GEODIS Countbot solution, designed in partnership with Delta Drone.
The patented solution is the result of more than three years of R&D and testing; it is totally secure and also guarantees the protection of goods and people (CE certification). GEODIS Countbot consists of a robot, 16 high-resolution cameras, a mast that can reach a height of 10 m and a drone that ensures the stability and hence the quality of the images collected.
Romain Cauvet, Director of Engineering for the GEODIS Supply Chain Optimization Line of Business, said that the entire operation will be completed in only two 6-hour sessions. Romain also made it known that GEODIS Countbot enables them to provide an exhaustive snapshot of the stocks and to supply HD visuals should any discrepancy arise between the inventory and the WMS (Warehouse Management System).
Following early trials, Ludwig Cresson, Flow Manager at L’Oréal, commented made it known that they are always on the lookout for innovative solutions that improve the efficiency of their processes, their service to their customers and their employees.
