China's first cross-border e-commerce smart robot warehouse (called Smart One) has been put into use in Yizhuang, Beijing. In the meanwhile, the bonded cross-border e-commerce business officially launched in Beijing. As a result, delivery times and costs are expected to decrease when Beijing consumers buy goods from Kaola.com, JD.com and other cross-border e-commerce platforms.
The Smart One warehouse has an area of 10,000 square meters, including the robot area, the identification area, the tally area, the sorting and packing area, the human-machine handover area, the declaration area and other functional areas. Smart One is equipped with full-view and high-definition video surveillance, as well as X-ray inspection equipment and sorting equipment used by customs and the China Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau (CIQ).
Their own intellectual property is the highlight of Smart One warehouse. Although the appearance of the robot is as ordinary as a little box, each robot has its own 'brain', and can complete a range of intelligent operations including receiving, shelving, storage, sorting, inspection and delivery.
The Smart One warehouse can process more than 300,000 packages per day and deploy more than 10,000 robots to work in the monitoring area. Each Smart One robot can handle 10,000 packages during an eight-hour working time per day, which is four times more efficient than human labor in a traditional warehouse.
