Ocado

Siemens and Ocado deliver the automated warehouse of the future

Ocado, the world’s only exclusively online supermarket, has developed next generation automated warehouses, where robots working together can pick and fulfil customer orders, averaging around 50 items, in just minutes.

Siemens and Ocado have been strategic partners for many years, working together on Ocado’s earlier generation of automated warehouses. The current solution is a step up, and totally consistent with Ocado’s culture and reputation as an innovator and self-disruptor. The Siemens solution, based around the SIMATIC S7 controller, raised the bar and gave Ocado the perfect platform to work from.
 

Siemens will continue to support Ocado with a technology roadmap that will help Ocado to remain a market leader and serial innovator. Both organisations have a proven track record of overcoming some of the most complex challenges using technology and engineering excellence. 

Delivering a highly automated warehouse using this new system took our competitors ten years. We did it in just three. Siemens collaborated with us during crucial stages of the development lifecycle to deliver our assets on time.
