GEODIS launches blockchain collaboration aimed at small-and-medium-sized brands
Utilizing goods-to-man robotics, blockchain technology, and advanced fulfillment capabilities, the collaboration aims to provide scalable services to businesses
GEODIS is partnering with Project Verte, an ecommerce platform using proprietary software and blockchain technology to provide a community-driven marketplace, with the aim of boosting the e-commerce capabilities and fulfillment needs of small-and-medium-sized brands.
Working with GEODIS, Project Verte has opened their first 750,000-sq-ft automated fulfillment centre in Atlanta, Georgia with immediate plans to expand. The operation uses a variety of innovative technologies within the warehouse, including goods-to-man robotics that provide a scalable warehouse operation for growing brands.
"While we traditionally focus on enterprise clients, we recognize the growth opportunities for growing brands to connect with their consumers online," says Jerry McDonald, SVP of retail at GEODIS Americas. "We have been looking for the opportunity to work with small-and-medium sized brands, and are thrilled to combine Project Verte's ecommerce and fulfillment platform with our operational expertise and global footprint."
"Project Verte is shaping the next generation of consumer-business relationships through our community-based ecommerce ecosystem," said Julian Kahlon, Project Verte CEO and Founder. "Our technology is uniquely built to give small-and-medium-sized businesses the tools they need to innovate, create, and grow in the present and future state of ecommerce. This initiative with GEODIS propels us into the forefront of the ecommerce industry."
