A New Collaborative Business Model for eCommerce Logistics.

Raleigh, NC - MonarchFx, a division of Tompkins International, has just released its newest video, Get To Know MonarchFx. Watch this creative, clever, animated video that explains what MonarchFx is, and the benefits it provides to retailers, brands, and consumers.

MonarchFx is the coming together of world class supply chain and logistics companies with world class sellers of products, to form a reinvented unichannel logistics ecosystem that is new, smart, and innovative. This unichannel ecosystem encompasses many things for fulfillment, including wholesale, retail, direct-to-consumer, eCommerce, store replenishment, cross dock, and even value-added services.

MonarchFx is your smarter logistics solution comprised of best-in-class supply chain companies focused on delivering cost effective, high service level fulfillment solutions to retailers and brands. MonarchFx offers a local automated fulfillment network and local/regional final delivery services at a competitive price, providing great customer service. MonarchFx has five locations planned for 2018 located in Southern California, Dallas, Atlanta, New Jersey, and Chicago, offering two-day delivery or better to 95% of U.S. consumers.

MonarchFx is an alternative with reliable services at a reasonable cost that protects brands and customer data. Competitors often expose and use sales data to identify customer preferences, using the data to create private label products, creating a brand competitor. Consumers expect more services and options, from buy online, pick up in store, to consumer and store fulfilment, order tracking, and return options. MonarchFx helps retailers and brands to focus on their own customer experience, while MonarchFx handles everything post click. 

Tompkins Robotics is one of the technologies that enables MonarchFx. The robots are efficient, require little space, easily scalable, flexible, and requires little capital, startup time, and labor. The t-Sort robot technology uses free-moving, independent robots to replace conveyors and sortation systems.

The MonarchFx technology platform includes Tompkins Robotics, Tompkins Warehouse Execution System, The Connected Warehouse™ powered by Sensor Think, Softeon, DHL, NFI, and Kenco. It is the whole package and has best in class integrated systems capability.

To better understand the benefits of MonarchFx come visit the newly innovated and updated Tompkins Emerging Technology Center. See live demonstrations of the latest in robotics, The Connected Warehouse, and more.

In response to COVID-19 and limiting travel, Tompkins Robotics is now offering interactive virtual tours using a variety of stationary and roaming cameras throughout the facility.  We have the capability to demonstrate five t-Sort systems with various configurations, robots and functionalities.  The main demonstration system includes three different induction types: manual, robotic and A-frame.  Our systems are capable of e-commerce order fulfillment, store replenishment, backroom and parcel / postal sortation.  We can demonstrate the original t-Sort robotic system in multiple dual level configurations and an elevator system to move robots between the levels.  Our larger t-Sort Plus robots run on single level systems with both tilt tray and crossbelt options.  In the very near future we will demonstrate the new t-Sort Mini in an additional system. We have a wide variety of inventory to demonstrate products including general merchandise, apparel, grocery, fragile goods, odd sizes and shapes and a wide range of product weights.  You will also have a chance to learn about the technologies that are integrated into our system such as automated induction, automated charging, integrated weight and dimension capture, our proprietary wireless network and Warehouse Execution System (WES), new innovations such as our automated sorter exit solution and more.  And if mobility and flexibility are important to you, we can demonstrate how easy it is to reconfigure a system, remove or add a sort table, and even fold a table into a smaller footprint for move or transport.
