Berkshire Grey Inc., a provider of AI-enabled robotic solutions that automate supply chain processes, announced the launch of its AI-powered Robotic Shuttle Put Wall (RSPW) solution for e-commerce order fulfillment. The RSPW is an automated put wall that increases capacity and throughput with robotic automation, addressing today’s heightened customer expectations for fast and efficient fulfillment and the parallel industry pressure of labor scarcity. With the RSPW, businesses can increase e-commerce order fulfillment process by up to 300% and handle nearly 100% of typical e-commerce SKUs, without hiring additional staff.
“Businesses will continue to see e-commerce orders rise as global e-commerce sales expect to approach $5 trillion by the end of 2021. This growth in volume combined with labor scarcity is putting tremendous pressure on supply chain operations to increase fulfillment throughput and support a broad selection of products. Businesses have no choice but to automate,” says Kevin Prouty, analyst at IDC. “Companies like Berkshire Grey can support their customers with robotic automation solutions that address rising consumer demands.”
“E-commerce 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.”
