CoEvoltion's recent milestone comes a few months after its North American debut at ProMat 2023.

CoEvolution Technology today announced that its multi-fleet robot orchestration software has been deployed at more than 50 companies.

The China-based company said its multi-fleet solutions are based on AI-driven core software that can control different types of robots, coordinating them to deliver multi-fleet solutions.

CoEvolution's software harnesses video game technology so that the movements of multiple agents can be plotted in order to control real-world fleets of heterogenous robots. Dr Zhu saw the potential offered by AI-based technology to create value, having spent many years learning the ‘pain points’ in the logistics industry.

“We are pioneers. It’s something that you would only do once you’ve played with robots and played with the traditional supply chain business for quite a long time,” said Lijun Zhu, CEO and co-founder of CoEvolution.

Its list of international customers includes companies in an array of sectors, including retail, electronics, e-commerce, and manufacturing. CoEvolution noted it works collaboratively with each to create the ideal solution to meet their specific needs.

“Achieving in excess of 50 deployments is a huge landmark and we are happy to have cemented our place as a leading company in the field of multi-vendor robot fleet interoperability,” said Michael Wang, co-founder and chief operating officer at CoEvolution.  “Our ambitious plans will see us move far beyond this total, as manufacturing and warehousing continue to face logistics and staffing challenges that can be addressed through the use of efficient and flexible fleets of multiple robots from different vendors working together within shared environments.”

It recently celebrated a milestone in its development, with the rollout of its latest tailored solution at a warehouse serving South Korean retail giant Lotte, increasing throughput by 30% more SKUs per day.

CoEvolution expands presence in U.S.

The latest move by CoEvolution is its launch into the US market, becoming a U.S.-incorporated business and establishing a new office in Seattle. CoEvolution recently made its US debut at ProMat 2023, where it partnered with HAI Robotics.

The company is looking to build new relationships in North America, and has hired a new local project manager to help facilitate the expansion.

CoEvolution's founding

CoEvolution was co-founded by Zhu, who has a PhD in Physics and extensive logistics experience, both in the U.S. at Amazon and Alibaba in China. At Alibaba he worked at the logistics arm, on projects involving the integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning into logistics.

He left in 2019 and assembled a team of co-founders who brought a range of tech, business development, AI, automation and logistics skills to the company he started.  CoEvolution now has more than 100 employees, over 50 deployments around the world, offices in both China and the US, and ambitious plans to expand its reach into Europe, where it is now seeking integrators and partners.

CoEvolution added it has worked with customers such as Siemens, Lenovo, Lotte, SF Express, DHL, Yunda, MyMRO, Ruhlamat, and Wurth.

“We don’t know of another multi-fleet orchestration solutions provider with as many deployments in place,” said Long Wong, CoEvolution U.S. director. “CoEvolutionis growing fast, as more and more companies discover the huge potential to save money and resources offered by well-managed multi-vendor robot fleets.”
