The collaboration between the Global manufacturer, ABB Robotics, and Canadian Integrators, Cam Industrial and Remtech Systems, is in line with each organization’s vision to bring automated solutions for logistics and supply chains in Alberta and British Columbia. With a high number of centres across the two provinces and a growing consumer demand, fulfillment centres need to be flexible, fast, and accurate to be successful in today’s changing market.

ABB is a leading supplier and manufacturer of industrial robots and software with a range of logistic automation solutions from mixed load palletizing, de-palletizing, sequence systems and storage retrieval systems.

Cam | Industrial and Remtech Systems are Value Providers and Integrators in Western Canada, bringing expertise in engineering, installations, commissioning and maintaining these automation projects.

ABB Robotics, Cam Industrial and Remtech are combining years of experience in logistics, distribution centres and robotic solutions to advance how Distribution Centres are getting products in the hands of consumers.

“In the past, many distribution centers have had to compromise volume for flexibility, or speed for accuracy. The modern distribution center needs to be able to deliver all of these – accommodating greater package variety and soaring volumes while meeting delivery expectations that have gone from days to sometimes hours.”
