The overall scale of the express courier industry has expanded rapidly with the swift growth of the e-commerce industry. This increase requires higher sorting efficiency. The labor-intensive and slower manual sorting processes are insufficient to meet the demand for faster delivery. While automatic cross-belt sorters facilitate fast processing capacity, the high investment and lack of customization are a cause of hesitation for express courier businesses.
Our goal is to become the leading global supplier and service provider of flexible intelligence AGV solutions to assist express courier companies in their logistic process from sorting and picking to packing and conveying
Libiao Robotics—an automated robot-based parcel sortation solutions provider— has developed Mini Yellow robots, the cost-effective and flexible alternative to tilt tray and cross-belt conveyor-based sortation systems traditionally used in parcel and e-commerce operations.
Since its establishment in 2016, Libiao has specialized in developing and innovating logistics automation technology, gradually building a rich product ecosystem for intelligent logistics applications. It emphasizes the development of original, intelligent software and hardware technology for sorting robots, along with creating independent system bottom layers and relevant applications.
The sorting robot series forms the core of Libiao’s solution, with automatic control, scanning, weighing, and smart charging systems supporting its functionality.
Libiao’s robotic solution began with the goal of bringing greater efficiency into the postal sector. It then moved on to the express industry to solve and sort billions of parcels. Libiao’s intelligent sorting system is widely applied across various industries and scenarios, including supermarkets, retail, shoes and garments, medicine, catering, cold storage, book publications, and manufacturing.
Libiao Robotics has always focused on providing intelligent warehouse logistics to ease its clients’ workflow. Its leading AI robot technology allows the traditional logistics industry to be energized through the intelligent reformation of their sorting workflow. The portable, modular, and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) unit sorting systems consume relatively lesser space and facilitate significantly faster sorting.
“Our goal is to become the leading global supplier and service provider of flexible intelligence AGV solutions to assist express courier companies in their logistic process from sorting and picking to packing and conveying,” says Ronan Shen, Overseas Sales Director of Libiao Robotics.
For instance, Greece Post (ELTA)—a state-owned provider of postal services— has over 1,100 service outlets in Greece. However, their sorting process largely depended on high-cost manual and semi-mechanization. ELTA employed over 50 people to sort 70 to 80 thousand parcels daily, each taking one to two minutes. ELTA also faced package weighing problems due to having numerous branches in different cities and islands, losing 20 to 30 percent of the revenue payment from the shops. Greece Post approached Libiao Robotics to assist them with parcel sorting and overcome the inefficiencies of conventional sorting. Libiao Robotics implemented 60 sorting robots as they wanted a weighing model to check parcel weight. This helped ELTA increase its sorting speed threefold and become Greece’s benchmark of sorting efficiency.
Impressed with these competencies, many logistic companies are looking to partner with Libiao Robotics for its flexibility and unique approach. Its ‘first principle of thinking’ empowers Libiao Robotics to accurately analyze the root cause of the problem and quickly solve it. Libiao Robotics is increasing its product portfolio and expanding its offices in Germany for the European market, and Singapore for the Southeast Asia market. Libiao will soon have a global sales network, offices, and manufacturing centers. It is also planning to establish local service centers, offering spare parts across Europe, Asia, the U.S., China, and Japan. It won’t be long before Libiao’s Mini Yellow robots dominate every major express sorting center worldwide.
