Retail and e-Commerce cover a multitude of products, from the ever-changing world of fashion, through 24-48 hour stock cycles of the supermarkets and the giant, billion-SKU count online retailers. They all have many challenges in common, feel the same pain points and need to invest in the same areas to thrive:
- 24-hour online shopping and demand for next-day and same-day delivery.
- Returns processing overtaking despatch in terms of resource & space.
- Labour shortage.
- Exponential SKU growth & high turnover.
The answer to a lot of these is often “automation” and the industry seems to agree. With over half of all new warehouses employing some form of automation, it’s becoming critical to include automation in any proposed spending. With the cost-of-living crisis continuing to bite, consumers will naturally spend less – hitting margins and reducing the available capital to spend on future investment. It becomes even more pressing to be able to implement automation in a cost-effective, risk-managed and prudent manner.
Our expertise in end-of-line palletising and automated transport can help solve many typical tasks found in eCommerce, Fulfilment and Retail Logistics. Our platform line of AMRs can provide an efficient and flexible Goods-to-Person picking solution, regardless of the type of product being processed. Our compact robot palletising cells will often slot into an existing application without massive disruption.
In all cases, our expert team will work with you in detail to design and implement a solution that matches your needs perfectly.

Pallet Wrapping Systems
Stabilise and protect your palletised goods with a pallet wrapping system. Suitable for all many types of palletised products. RMGroup has collaborated with a leading global palletwrapping specialist to formulate its own range of stretch wrapping systems. With their partner's 35 years of experience in the field and over 25 years of experience within the packaging and automation industry, RMGroup have developed a range of user-friendly, highly efficient wrapping machines to suit every requirement.
This was the first equipment we have sourced from RMGroup and, given our time constraints, they fully met our brief. The pick and place cell rapidly improved our efficiencies and outputs by 40%, helping to reduce labour costs and allowing us to be more competitive for our flowpack range of products. Our working relationship with RMGroup was very good during a challenging period time wise, and although we have no immediate plans for further installations, any future expansion plans will certainly entail cooperation with RMGroup
