Flexible warehouse automation catches Wincanton’s eye
02 January 2021
SqUID technology from start-up BionicHIVE, shortlisted in the ‘Dark Store’ category for 2021’s W2 Labs programme, will be trialled and refined within Wincanton’s UK-wide operation.
The AMRs move like carts around the warehouse carrying loads, and can also climb racks to place and remove boxes.
BionicHIVE’s Ilan Reingold said: “BionicHIVE enables seamless and affordable adoption of warehouse automation, without requiring any changes to existing warehouse infrastructure. Our robotic fleet operates in any warehouse, on any rack and shelf, handling any box, and is flexible to handle any item.”
The firm sees an opportunity in Wincanton’s scheme to scale up once the solution is proven.
