Seegrid executives have found that Warehouse and Distribution Centers currently using forklifts, are tired of facility and product damage as well as safety concerns and injuries. Too often there are high maintenance costs and downtime and productivity issues due to forklift operators. Seegrid will share why this robotic truck is not typical and how customers such as Giant Eagle have automated their putaway process as well as optimal solution to drive down costs; eliminate non-value added manned travel by deploying Seegrid robots enterprise-wide.
The unmanned pallet truck transports products with vision-guided technology. From putaway, transfers and selection to long hauls and cross-docking, the robots will reduce the cost per move. Extend workforce productivity, improve safety, and lower operating costs give operations personnel truck and route control.
