2018 Smart Mobility Grand Award


DKSH Hong Kong Smart Automated Warehouse Solution

Description of Entry:
BPS Global developed a smart automated warehouse in Hong Kong for DKSH, the leading Market Expansion Services provider in Asia. The facility performs secondary repacking, storage and distribution for pharmaceutical goods. The solution addresses DKSH’s challenges, including tight man power supply, increasingly stringent regulatory requirement and ever dynamic customer expectation in the market.

BPS Global tailor made a smart logistics system by integrating carousel storage, mobile robot technology, drop-to-light panel and conveying system for goods-to-person order fulfillment. Automation is a breakthrough in the relatively conservative pharmaceutical and health care logistics industry. Another key feature of the solution is its full compliance with the related GMP/GDP/WDL/CSV statutory requirement stipulated by Department of Health and World Health Organization.

This solution demonstrates that smart logistics automation is feasible in Hong Kong’s special environment, especially in traditional multi-storey industrial/warehouse buildings with comparatively low ceiling height and small compartmentation. Smart logistics automation does not only apply in purposely-built construction but also smartly affordable for SMEs in conventional buildings.

By adopting the modular system integration approach, clients can easily re-engineer the automation products they have invested in, having the devices fitted into their future business models or relocated to other sites, which is common in Hong Kong for its short lease period. BPS solutions have also been well-received in a variety of industries, such as e-commerce, mini-stores, freight forwarding, etc, with stories of success being created and expanded in various Asia Pacific countries.

Comments from Judging Panel:
The smart automated warehouse solution can maximise the operation efficiency and benefits with their integration tools and services. It is a very challenging integration with all the different warehouse equipments, which makes this application outstanding.
