On 16-17 February 2022, we took part in the third year of the largest Czech trade fair for e-commerce and online business – Czech Online Expo 2022 – which took place at the PVA EXPO exhibition center in Prague. We showed visitors what lies behind our robotic fulfillment services, and presented some advantages of our services.
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit every sector. Businesses in many areas have started looking for ways to raise productivity and increase flexibility, not to mention finding solutions to the shortage of skilled labor. There has been an acceleration in the demand for e-commerce, and e-shops have also started focusing more on making their logistics simpler. Many companies have also begun to use fulfillment services to enable them to expand their business.
While warehouse robotics is in its infancy in the Czech Republic, more and more foreign companies and distribution centers are beginning to deploy new technologies and robotics in their warehouse logistics operations. We decided to introduce ourselves to you in the spirit of the global trend of robotics and automation in warehouses, and so we visited the largest Czech trade fair for e-commerce and online business – Czech Online Expo – on 16-17 February 2022.
We introduced a reversed warehouse concept in which the warehouse staff don’t go to the warehouse – instead, the warehouse comes to the picker. This attracted a large number of e-commerce retailers who wanted to learn more.
We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of face-to-face contact after our time online, and the more than 7,000 visitors were not only able to get a first-hand look at our robotic warehouse in Paskov, but also learn more about new global trends, what we pride ourselves on at Dextrum Fulfillment and, as a bonus, were able to sample some sweet refreshments supplied by our business partner, Marlenka. There were more than a hundred exhibitors at the fair, and anybody interested could listen to lectures on 13 themes from more than a hundred speakers and consultants.
We are glad we were able to take part and show you what reliable, fast, and yet cheap comprehensive logistics for e-commerce looks like.
The networking and chance to physically shake the hands of our partners at PPL and Zásilkovna were icing on the cake, and we’re already looking forward to the next event!
The fourth Czech Online Expo will take place on 22-23 February 2023. However, we hope to see you sooner than this, either at other events or when you visit our fulfillment center in Paskov, to which you are cordially invited for a tour.
