Bolloré Logistics recently signed a partnership agreement with BALYO, a technological leader in innovative robotic solutions for material handling trucks, to provide automated pallet movement for its warehouses in APAC. The agreement paved the way for an initial order contracted with BALYO to equip the Blue Hub with a “VNA” robotic truck.
As part of this collaboration, Bolloré Logistics will host BALYO’s Singapore team at its B.Lab innovation centre to design value-creating supply chain solutions in various innovative applications, notably in the field of warehouse automation. Furthermore, Bolloré Logistics will benefit from BALYO’s technological know-how by combining expertise and resources, accelerating its transition to robotics applied to autonomous pallet movement.
Discussions are currently in progress between the two organizations to acquire a robotic reach truck that will be introduced and put into service at the Bolloré Logistics’ Green Hub. Following this trial phase, both parties intend to launch short-term studies to determine which Bolloré Logistics sites in APAC can be equipped with BALYO solutions.
According to Pascal Rialland, CEO and Chairman at BALYO, “The signing of this partnership with Bolloré Logistics, a world leader in logistics and transportation, is a tremendous growth driver for BALYO. We are delighted to support them in their automation initiative from their lab in Singapore. This leading international hub is a unique place where BALYO will demonstrate the added value of its robots for specific applications. We look forward to starting our partnership with the first installation in the Blue Hub before further deployments in APAC.”
Frederic Marcerou, Managing Director of Bolloré Logistics Singapore, commented: “We are very pleased to reinforce our collaboration with BALYO. This partnership is a great opportunity for both companies to foster our mutual commitment to operational excellence. Together, we look forward to accelerating the integration of technologies in the supply chain industry and unlocking growth synergies in the APAC region.”
