Berkshire Grey, Inc., a provider of AI-enabled robotic solutions for supply chain processes, and Locus Robotics, which provides autonomous mobile robotics (AMR) for logistics and distribution warehouses, announced January 26 a combined solution that integrates the Berkshire Grey Robotic Shuttle Put Wall (BG RSPWi) with Locus Origin and Locus Vector bots. Berkshire Grey says this integrated solution deploys end-to-end robotic automation solutions for retail and e-commerce customers looking to maximize their supply chain productivity and throughput while addressing growing labor shortages.
“Partnering with Berkshire Grey allows our customers to reap the benefits of enterprise-level robotic automation across some of their most business-critical supply chain processes,” said Mike Johnson, President at Locus Robotics.
Steve Johnson, President and COO at Berkshire Grey agreed saying, “We have seen a growing number of customers asking for solutions that they can deploy holistically versus piecemeal innovation.”
This new solution helps retailers and eCommerce businesses maximize their throughput by:
• Delivering a fast and packaged solution for order fulfillment and store replenishment
• Processing a wide range of SKUs, surpassing SKU coverage of other alternatives
• Enabling a fully automated, end-to-end supply chain ecosystem
• Augmenting supply chain operations with optimized labor and costs
Berkshire Grey and Locus Robotics are also exploring the future integrations of Berkshire Grey’s Robotic Product Sortation (BG RPS), Robotic Shuttle Product Sortation (BG RSPS), Robotic Pick and Pack for eCommerce Auto-bagging (BG RPPi). The companies say that, with this end-to-end package of robotic solutions, businesses can fully automate their order fulfillment, auto-bagging and store replenishment processes while seeing immediate ROI and throughput improvements.
