Robots for XPO

No alternative text provided

XPO Logistics plans to deploy 5,000 intelligent robots throughout its logistics sites in North America and Europe. The robots, which are designed to collaborate with humans, will supplement the service provider’s existing workforce and support growth.

XPO is exclusive logistics provider for use of Grey Orange robots in North America, the UK and eight European countries.

The autonomous robots are part of a modular goods-to-person system that also includes mobile storage racks and fulfilment stations. Each robot can move a rack weighing between 450 kg – 1,600 kg, and take it to a station where a worker fulfils up to 48 orders simultaneously.

Bradley Jacobs, CEO of XPO Logistics, said:

“The addition of 5,000 collaborative robots will make our logistics operations safer and more productive in picking, packing and sortation."
