Coca-Cola Singapore partners XSQUARE to launch new Autonomous Forklifts and Warehouse Orchestration System

SINGAPORE, Jan. 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Coca-Cola has launched five new autonomous forklifts (AGVs) at its regional beverage concentrate plant in Singapore, in partnership with XSQUARE Technologies (XSQUARE), Asia Pacific's leading intelligent warehouse automation solutions provider.

Coca-Cola Singapore embarked on this journey as part of its digital transformation strategy. The company supports one of the fastest growing regions in the world, and by embracing Industrial 4.0 capabilities into its plant, it will be able to build supply chain resilience into its system and increase plant capacity in anticipation of future growth opportunities.

XSQUARE's Springer AGVs have been integrated into the plant's shop floor and automated warehouse to transport finished goods within the premises. In addition, the autonomous forklifts have been incorporated with Coca-Cola's existing sub-systems and are able to operate in hybrid working environments. This is enabled by XSQUARE's Xymphony software, which allows for seamless data interoperability and increases operational efficiency.

"Coca-Cola is proud to launch our new AGVs with XSQUARE, leveraging their deep expertise in warehouse optimization and cutting-edge technologies. This marks a new milestone in our Industry 4.0 transformation journey."

"Through our partnership with XSQUARE and ongoing efforts to fully automate our plant in Singapore, we hope to continuously improve our processes, create higher value-added jobs for our workforce, and contribute to Singapore's vibrant ecosystem for advanced manufacturing," said Gerardo Artavia, Plant General Manager, Coca-Cola Singapore.

"As consumer expectations in the region rapidly evolve, it's crucial for warehouses to step up their capabilities. In this dynamic landscape, companies like Coca-Cola recognise the transformative power of intelligent warehousing solutions. We are thrilled to collaborate with them, providing our advanced AGV systems that are tailored for maximum safety, precision, and speed in navigation and storage. Our technology is not just about automation; it's about enhancing human efforts and ensuring efficiency in every aspect," said Jens Bohnwagner, CEO of XSQUARE. "This collaboration with Coca-Cola signifies a crucial juncture in our endeavors' to revolutionize warehouses across APAC as we seek to establish new benchmarks in warehousing technology and operations."

The implementation of XSQUARE's intelligent warehouse solutions has already resulted in remarkable improvements in terms of efficiency, safety and orchestration, and there are plans to build upon that success in Coca-Cola's expansion building in Singapore. The company has also recommended XSQUARE to other sister plants, indicating a positive outlook for future joint projects and partnerships.
