GreyOrange is expanding its operations into the Middle East, targeting retail, consumer and packaged goods, and e-commerce companies with logistics automation solutions like inventory management, order profiling and sorting.

Founded in 2011, GreyOrange has operations in India, China, Honk Kong and Japan.

The company raised US $30 million in August last year in a round of funding from Tiger Global, Blume Ventures and others for enhancing R&D operations as well as to expand to Asia Pacific, Middle East and Europe.

GreyOrange said at the time that it was working with Flipkart, Kerry Logistics, Jabong, DTDC, Aramex, Amazon.in, Gojavas and Mahindra. It said its systems were managing over 3 million packages per day.

GreyOrange Robotics builds worker robots and assisting systems for warehouse automation. It currently has two products – Butler and Sorter.

The Sorter is an automated sorting, scanning and weighing system, which sorts and diverts packets to the designated delivery vendors. GreyOrange says its sorter can scan and sort parcels of all types and sizes at an average speed of 1,500, 3,000 or 6,000 parcels per hour.
