Romark Logistics partners with NJII on tech-enabled warehouse of the future

Romark Logistics on Thursday said it partnered with New Jersey Innovation Institute, a nonprofit corporation owned by New Jersey Institute of Technology, to design the technology-enabled warehouse of the future together.

Romark, a Westfield-based third-party logistics provider with strategic focus on innovation and technology, including robotics and automation, said the partnership will further enhance Romark’s capabilities to fully leverage technology and to create advanced industry solutions.

“We look forward to working with the Romark team to support their unwavering commitment to technology,” Kathy Naasz, vice president of strategic partnerships at NJII, said. “We make it possible for companies to tap into NJIT’s deep expertise across many topics and leverage talent — within NJIT’s diverse faculty and student body — to design innovative solutions and deliver on projects.”

Romark turned to NJII to collaboratively establish a technology roadmap that leverages its advanced existing automation solutions and potential new technologies to be developed.

The partnership represents a multiyear technology roadmap that is already underway, and will include discrete projects spanning artificial intelligence, robotics, video analytics, optimization algorithms and other future technologies.

“We are very excited about our partnership with NJII/NJIT and the impressive team they have assembled,” Marc Lebovitz, owner and president, said. “Romark embraces innovation and is consistently researching opportunities for advanced technology throughout the world. By partnering with NJII/NJIT, we gain additional expertise and further expand our R&D capabilities, which will enable us to continue to transform our business and position our clients for the future.”
