A to B transport with Lowpads

Challenge

Safe and flexible automation solution for replacing manual transport

DHL and Ricoh encountered the daily challenge of transporting 900 heavy printers from packing to configuration in their Bergen op Zoom warehouse. They needed a safe and flexible automation solution to replace their manual transport process.

Solution

Reshaping DHL's logistics process

After a successful proof of concept, DHL decided to adopt Lowpad Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) to redesign their logistics process. The safety feature of Lowpad AMRs was crucial in the warehouse location, which had almost 60 workstations and narrow aisles measuring only 1.6 meters wide.

"DHL’s accelerated digitalization strategy is exemplified by Lowpads, which utilizes innovative technology to enhance working conditions and efficiency."
