Last 21st April in Madrid took place the gala award ceremony of the DHL Green&Digital Innovation Awards, in its third edition, a competition organised by DHL Supply Chain Iberia to recognise and publicise the most sustainable and innovative projects in the Logistics 4.0 environment.
About our AMR pallet wrapping machine
Our AMR-wrapping machine transforms the current process of an operator moving the same pallet several times (unproductive work) into another, more productive and fully automated and controlled process, in which the machine carries out the transport, wrapping and data generation operations, with greater safety and time savings. This solution was created with the aim of simplifying and automating baling processes to increase the productivity of our customers.
This pallet wrapper has also been designed and manufactured by us in Spain, and we will soon be starting series production of it. Our customers will be able to obtain it at zero cost (without investment or fees) with our comprehensive Sie+ wrapping service.
The first and only stretch wrapping machine to integrate AMR technology
This great innovation is the result of years of research and development of stretch wrapping solutions, and presents multiple benefits for our customers, such as reducing the number of machines and pallet moving vehicles in the warehouse work areas (doing with only one machine what was previously done with several) and having greater control of the processes.
In addition, the AMR-wrapper machine increases the safety and ergonomics of warehouse operators.
About DHL Green&Digital Innovation Awards
The DHL Green & Digital Innovation Awards aim to publicly recognise those services, products or innovation projects that represent a breakthrough in sustainability, robotisation or digitalisation of the supply chain and that have a practical and direct application for logistics operators or companies that internally manage warehousing, transport and distribution activities.
In the Robotisation category, in which we were named winners, the best solutions, services or products that make it possible to achieve a significant advance in the digitalisation of the logistics business or its automation through robotics were evaluated.

A philosophy of constant innovation
At Aranco, which we have always been committed to innovation, sustainability and digitalisation to improve wrapping processes, such recognition corroborates the efforts and in-depth specialisation we have acquired after years of experience and knowledge of the customer and their needs, which have resulted in an innovative wrapping machine that is unique in the market.
