Cutter & Buck harnesses the power of AutoStore with FulfillX
With retail customers becoming more demanding when it comes to delivery times and efficient order fulfillment, conventional solutions are falling behind. Kardex FulfillX for AutoStore can ramp up to full capacity in as little as 6 months.
Iconic US clothing retailer Cutter & Buck was able to reinvent its omnichannel business by harnessing the capabilities of AutoStore powered by Kardex's precise FulfillX WES. The company needed a system to help it handle rising online and bricks-and-mortar sales, and growing inventory levels. The company opted to install an AutoStore system with Kardex FulfillX at its site in Renton, WA.
The speed and density of the AutoStore robotic cube solution and the FulfillX focused ‘pick to pack' solution was ideal for Cutter & Buck's existing fulfillment center near Seattle. Combined with Cutter & Buck's commitment to leverage automation in order to address business challenges and its forward looking approach, the project successfully optimized inventory and order fulfillment processes to deliver streamlined results.
Kardex at Modex 2024
Visitors to the Kardex booth (B6410) at MODEX 2024 were able to see how Kardex combines its software knowhow with the capabilities of AutoStore cube storage solutions to create user-friendly, highly-configurable and focused ASRS solutions.
In addition to new developments in warehouse software, visitors experienced live demonstrations of Kardex's Intuitive Pick Assistant. With a user-friendly picking display, the innovative warehouse solution responds to movements and projects relevant picking information directly onto the surface of the access opening. It is compatible with both Kardex Remstar and AutoStore ports to facilitate accurate, ergonomic picking. Using digital tools and augmented reality, Kardex brought to life its full portfolio of solutions, including vertical lift modules, vertical carousel modules, vertical buffer modules and AutoStore systems.
Mitch Hayes, President of Kardex Solutions AutoStore, comments: "It was great to be able to demonstrate the capabilities of our portfolio of automation solutions at MODEX 2024, including Kardex FulFillX for AutoStore, our Intuitive Pick Assistant, and our wide range of modules, software packages and concepts. At Kardex, we assess each customer and understand their needs in order to develop a tailored solution designed to transform their warehouse operations.

FulFillX has been designed to enhance the power of AutoStore, helping companies meet and exceed their business cases quickly by providing exceptional results within months. The modern microservices backend and simple window have been developed by our team of experienced automation engineers with extensive experience of AutoStore and complementary technologies."
Commenting on the capabilities of FulFillX, AutoStore Partner Sales Manager, Matt Savoie, adds, "We are delighted to work in partnership with Kardex on its innovative FulfillX warehouse execution system.
