Future phases will include the deployment of an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) tote-to-person (TTP) picking system based on Hai Robotics' ACR robots and HaiPort workstations.

“We are delighted to be working with John Lewis on this strategically important initiative. It combines all of our key capabilities in one project, solution design, the deployment of our Reflex WES platform in a multi-agent robotic-based automation environment & complete project life cycle support, said Tony Gruber, MD at Logistex. “We look forward to a successful project and an enduring relationship with John Lewis.”

“We are thrilled JLP and Logistex have found the right solution with Hai Robotics' HaiPick, which can reach up to 10 m [32.8 ft.] for picking and storing,” said Damien Skinner, country manager of U.K and Ireland, Hai Robotics. “We look forward to working with them on this project and expanding our partnership.”

“One of the reasons why HaiPick was the right fit for the Logistex solution is because it is highly flexible and suitable to be deployed in existing sites,” Skinner added.

Earlie this year at ProMat, Hai Robotics received an Innovation Award for its product lineup.

The Fremont, Calif.-based company said the award is a testament to its dedication to excellence and its ability to deliver intelligent automation solutions that help businesses increase efficiency, reduce costs, reduce storage footprint, and improve overall productivity.
