PARTNERSHIP

EXOTEC REJOINT LE PARTENARIAT STRATEGIQUE MONDIAL INITIE PAR FAST RETAILING POUR RENFORCER LA TRANSFORMATION DE LA CHAINE LOGISTIQUE

Fast Retailing today announces that it has concluded strategic global partnership agreements with MUJIN Inc., a Japanese intelligent industrial robot controller manufacturer, and EXOTEC, a French robotics solutions provider. These accords expand the alliance initiated in October 2018 with DAIFUKU Co., Ltd., a worldwide leader in materials handling systems.

Initiatives under the Strategic Global Partnership:

1. Further automate warehousing

Apparel picking automation is challenging because of the nature and variety of items. Fast Retailing will accelerate warehouse automation by working with MUJIN to develop and internationally deploy picking robots employing artificial intelligence-based motion planning.

2. Globally deploy automated warehousing

Working with DAIFUKU from last year, Fast Retailing has begun to automate two warehouses in Japan and another two abroad. In addition, Fast Retailing looks to initially automate one facility each with MUJIN and Exotec Solutions internationally, and will thereafter expand such endeavors.

3. Expand strategic partnerships and fast-track hiring

Fast Retailing will build an unparalleled supply chain by expanding alliances with companies that have advanced technologies, while recruiting experts to spearhead supply chain reforms.
