ABB Robotics partnering to bring automation in supply chains

ABB Robotics, and Canadian Integrators, Cam | Industrial and Remtech Systems, are partnering to bring automated solutions for logistics and supply chains in Alberta and British Columbia.

With a high number of centres across the two provinces and a growing consumer demand, fulfillment centres need to be flexible, fast, and accurate to be successful in today’s changing market.

ABB is a supplier and manufacturer of industrial robots and software with a range of logistic automation solutions from mixed load palletizing, de-palletizing, sequence systems and storage retrieval systems.

Cam | Industrial and Remtech Systems are Value Providers and Integrators in Western Canada, bringing experience in engineering, installations, commissioning and maintaining these automation projects.


ABB Robotics, Cam | Industrial and Remtech are combining experience in logistics, distribution centres and robotic solutions to advance how Distribution Centres are getting products in the hands of consumers.

“In the past, many distribution centers have had to compromise volume for flexibility, or speed for accuracy. The modern distribution center needs to be able to deliver all of these – accommodating greater package variety and soaring volumes while meeting delivery expectations that have gone from days to sometimes hours.”

In January 2020, ABB completed the acquisition of the Belgian robotics automation provider, intrion, now known as ABB solutions NV . The acquisition has advanced ABB’s logistics robotics offering, focusing on warehouse and logistics solutions for wholesale and retail distribution, e-commerce, food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

Cam | Industrial and Remtech Systems are giving life to ABB’s concept of a fully automated distribution centre to Western Canadian e-commerce, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical companies that are looking to gain a competitive advantage.
