Berkshire Grey has announced the launch of its AI-powered robotic shuttle product sortation (RSPS) solution for retail, grocery and 3PL order processing.
The RSPS allows for store replenishment, split-case cross docking, allocation order processing, and e-commerce fulfilment, by automating order sortation and packing.
The system supports the fulfilment of e-commerce orders through stores and in-person shopping by automating store replenishment, allocation order processing, split-case cross docking, sortation, and packing.
Following a series of successful installations at major U.S. retailers, the solution is now generally available for global deployments.
The system is able to increase piece pick order fulfilment by up to four times with no additional labour, improve shipment capacity and container cube utilisation by up to 10%, and operate as a standalone or integrated with traditional material handling systems such as automated storage and retrieval systems.
“Our AI-powered Robotic Shuttle Product Sortation (RSPS) solution enables the merchandising practices that drive retail growth while improving operating models in distribution centres – even in a time of labour scarcity,” said Tom Wagner, CEO at Berkshire Grey.
