SDI Inc. partnered with Kindred to integrate its materials handling systems and technology with Kindred’s artificial intelligence (AI) pick-and-place robotic solutions to help customers meet increasing retail fulfillment demands year-round.
The influx in retail fulfillment continues to upheave the supply chain. But, regardless of what e-commerce looks like post-pandemic, automation is key to moving product through the chain and protection the human workforce.
- Warehouse associates work collaboratively with Kindred’s SORT to sort items into individual customer orders quickly and accurately.
- The robots arrive ready to operate, with minimal associate training, and adapt to each distribution center’s unique requirements.
- Kindred’s machine learning algorithms also improve robot performance over time for the entire fleet.
