Robotics systems in the warehouse continue to grow, especially since COVID-19. Furthering this concept, technology developers invent new and innovative ways to incorporate automation into the warehouse in an effort to make human jobs more convenient and optimized. Berkshire Grey leans into this, hoping to mitigate labor shortage issues and ride the growth of e-commerce, with its new Robotic Shuttle Put Wall. The wall itself is equipped with robotic automation and artificial intelligence, accommodating up to up to nearly 100% of typical SKU assortments even more difficult items like polybags and tubes.
The RSPW solution can
- Increase customer order sortation throughput by up to 300% with the solution's high capacity put wall.
- Integrate with existing fulfillment processes with no disruption to ongoing operations.
- Provide sort locations for up to 240 orders to be processed at the same time in a single robotic put wall as opposed to the industry average of 80 orders for a manual put wall.
- Improve upstream batch inventory pick rates by up to 33%.
- Deliver best-in-class reliability while performing millions of picks in production.
- Support the needs of 24/7 order fulfillment.
- Provide maximum flexibility by integrating with any existing operation including robotic, conveyer, and manual-based transport approaches.
“Ecommerce continues to grow and surge. Our automation enables retailers to increase capacity to meet the growing demand and helps to deliver efficient revenue growth,” says Tom Wagner, Founder and CEO at Berkshire Grey. “Berkshire Grey’s AI-enabled Robotic Shuttle Put Wall is built on proven technology deployed by customers today. This new platform increases order processing speeds, optimizes the fulfillment workforce, and most importantly gets more orders out the door more quickly.”
