16 April 2024 – As a proud partner of the leading UK grocer Asda, Swisslog is pleased to announce a major milestone in their partnership. In celebration of a decade of AutoStore success, the two companies have released an exclusive video to mark the occasion.

Since the collaboration began in 2013, Swisslog and Asda have established a strong and long-lasting relationship built on trust. Over the years, it has evolved into a strategic partnership characterized by shared goals, mutual respect, and a commitment to excellence.

A decade of collaborative success

"In 2013, we won the contract to deliver an AutoStore grid at the Asda IDC in Lutterworth,” explains Ed Smith, Regional System Operations Manager at Swisslog. “Then, in 2014, we received the contract for the SO support team that we currently have on-site, which includes all the maintenance and servicing of the equipment. We then won a contract in 2015 to expand the AutoStore grid."

The newly released video showcases the journey of the partnership, offering viewers a glimpse of the innovative automation solution, AutoStore, in action. It provides an inside look at the collaborative efforts between Swisslog and Asda, highlighting the milestones achieved and the challenges overcome over the past decade.

Empowering operational efficiency

The trust placed in Swisslog by Asda is a testament to the reliability of its solutions. It reflects Swisslog's unwavering commitment to exceeding expectations and delivering tangible value to its esteemed clients.

“When we work on site, we are one big team,” shares Tom Spooner, Operations Manager at Asda IDC. “The benefits of the automation speak for themselves, but the relationship we have with Swisslog brings its own benefits. There’s a real collaborative feel about the way that we work, and that’s what makes the difference.”

As they embark on the next phase of their journey together, Swisslog remains committed to providing Asda with exceptional service and support. To learn more about the partnership between Swisslog and Asda, watch the full video here
