Swisslog and Heron team up to create robots

Swisslog and Austrian Heron Group have founded the Servus Intralogistik joint venture to develop and manufacture transport robots.

The venture creates new transport robots specifically for individual projects, particularly in high-throughput warehouses for cardboard boxes, totes and trays.

Daniel Fink, head of Swisslog’s warehouse and distribution solutions division said: “The transport robots complement our light goods technology portfolio in an ideal way. They allow us to offer innovative complete systems for highly dynamic buffer warehouses and modern integrations of picking stations.”
