Maersk, Fabric collaborate to develop e-commerce capabilities

A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) and Fabric have collaborated to provide innovative fulfilment solutions for e-commerce.

Fabric’s innovative robotic and software technologies will be used to power a new 38,000-square-foot automated fulfilment centre in Dallas, Texas.

According to Maersk, the new facility incorporates an AI-driven, automated e-commerce fulfilment solution in an urban setting, maximising warehouse efficiency while decreasing real estate footprint needs.

Erez Agmoni, Maersk’s Global Head of Innovation – Logistics and Services, said: “The growth of e-commerce continues to reshape the retail landscape.

“As we look to help our customers streamline their supply chains end-to-end, we see Fabric’s automated fulfillment solution as one that is highly capable of meeting the demand for efficient warehousing and fulfillment where labor and real estate resources are scarce.”

Fabric’s high-density, high-throughput cube-based storage solution can take full use of warehouse ceiling heights to optimise the possibilities of smaller facility footprints, explained Maersk.

This design reportedly makes the technology well-suited for distributed warehouse networks in urban areas, putting goods closer to population centers, thereby cutting shipping costs and expediting delivery times.

The Dallas facility is designed for high-volume, business-to-consumer e-commerce and can handle up to 25,000 stock keeping units (SKUs).

Avi (Jack) Jacoby, Fabric’s CEO, stated: “With our proven track record of operating our state-of-the-art facilities for the past five years, we have honed our capabilities to make each piece of the fulfilment process work together seamlessly to enable retailers to unlock the business value of fulfilment automation.

“Teaming up with Maersk allows each company to do what it does best, with the ultimate goal of offering retailers unprecedented value and service.”

This month, Maersk and Amazon agreed to ship 20,000 FFE (Forty Foot Equipment) containers using green biofuel via Maersk’s ‘ECO Delivery’ maritime product offering from 2023 to 2024.

Additionally, Maersk and Equinor inked an agreement to provide green methanol supply for Maersk’s new methanol-enabled feeder vessel during its initial months of operation.
