Fetch robots trialled at DHL warehouse

0

Deutsche Post DHL Group and technology manufacturer Wärtsilä have completed a pilot project testing mobile robots from Fetch Robotics for warehouse applications.

The pilot was carried out in Wärtsilä’s central distribution center in Kampen, the Netherlands, where DHL is responsible for running the warehouse and ensuring the smooth operation of the entire logistics chain, from order intake to customer delivery.

The mobile robot system simplifies point to point material handling. It enabled workflows at Wärtsilä’s warehouse to be set up and modified very quickly without the need for complex programming. Workers can interact with the robots via touchscreen and send them on their journeys with a push of a button.
