RA has been awarded three titles by the Mercury award, National awards celebrating excellence and innovation in Supply Chain & Logistics, for their End-of-Line project with Amcor Cartons, Botany NSW.

An integrated solution combining Robotic Palletising, AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicles) for Machine Tending & Delivery, plus fully-automatic Stretch Wrapping of pallet loads (see further below for a full case study). Our thanks to Logistics & Materials Handling magazine for this recognition culminating in the top award of the night, the ‘Best of the Best’ award.

  • Category: Best Materials Handling Solution
    • Result: Winner / 1st Place - RA & Amcor Cartons
  • Category: Best of the Best (from all category winners)
    • Result: Winner / 1st Place - RA & Amcor Cartons

Our thanks also to the team at Amcor Cartons, Botany, our client partners who helped make this project the recognised success that it is! Finally, to be fair to our many other long-standing clients and projects, we should note in apology that RA has only recently focused effort in awards participation (time better spent on the projects themselves!) and we know that our clients own many more award-worthy projects that can be found amongst the more than 3,000 solutions that RA has installed and supported nationally. Many of the best projects go unsung!
