SHENZHEN, China, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — HAI ROBOTICS, a global leader in Autonomous Case-handling Robotics (ACR) system for warehousing logistics, is pairing up with France-based global logistics solutions engineering company Savoye to make its cutting-edge warehousing technology to reach a broader community in the supply chain in Europe and beyond. The partnership will open a new chapter in HAI ROBOTICS’s overseas foray by harnessing the unique advantages of both parties.
HAI ROBOTICS launched the earliest ACR system HAIPICK in 2015 and has made it a commercial success with a slew of customer recognition. The HAIPICK robot has stood out from similar mobile robots with the ability to carry cartons as well as individual totes and to bring multiple cases to pickers or conveyors in one movement.
HAIPICK ACR system uses autonomous order-picking robots that pick and place totes or cartons on storage shelves up to 5 to 7 meters high and are able to carry up to 8 loads to continuously feed goods-to-person picking stations. The solution works in cold environments down to -10 °C.
“We believe that leveraging HAIPICK solution with Savoye’s expertise in supply chain and warehouse automation, this partnership will provide a set of unique opportunities for both of us. We are excited to partner with Savoye, and we are eager to explore this partnership to its full potential,” said Kane Luo, Vice President of Sales from HAI ROBOTICS.
Savoye has extensive networks of global customers and been widely recognized for the shuttle-based X-PTS storage solution.
Laurent Bollereau, Strategy and Solutions Engineering Director from Savoye, said of the HAIPICK solution based on HAI ROBOTICS robots, as “perfectly suited to smaller flow contexts.”
“The partnership with HAI ROBOTICS allows us to ideally complement our own range of solutions for goods-to-person order preparation. Indeed, our X-PTS technology is more particularly relevant to meet high-performance needs and large volumes of orders to be processed,” he said.
The HAIPICK system is seeing a fast-expanding global presence in the warehousing logistics sector. In the latest episode, the HAIPICK solution was deployed to handle picking and dispatch orders at Australia’s biggest online book retailer Booktopia’s 14,000sqm distribution center at Lidcombe, New South Wales, boosting its efficiency by 800%.
