According to a recent release, Result Packaging’s Process Automation Division will be Numina Group’s sales and technical support partner for implementing distribution automation in Australia.

“Numina Group has seen an increased interest from Australian companies for technologies that deliver increased throughput and labor savings,” stated Dan Hanrahan, president of Numina. “It’s critical to have a highly reputable and technically competent local partner to support our family of distribution automation technologies. Our partnership with Result Process Automation provides Australia based distribution and warehouse operations cost effective solutions to achieve higher profitability and a fast ROI.”

Result Process Automation will be supporting Numina Group’s Pick Execution modular voice and/or pick to order picking, a leading speaker-independent multimodal voice picking solution. Included with Pick Execution is Smart Pick Cart, a cart based picking solution that utilizes batch picking with walk path optimization.

Numina Group’s X-Press PAL in-line pack and ship technology completes the order fulfillment process. It is a modular end of-line product that scans, weighs, dimensions, auto prints and applies the packing slips and shipping labels for Internet, B2B and B2C distribution centers. Numerous options are available such as carton sealers, void fill stations, printers, and document inserters to further automate the entire Pack and Ship Operations.

To launch the sales initiative Result Packaging will provide customers a free one day site evaluation for the next six months to assess the labor savings and operational improvements in their order fulfillment operations.
