An innovative partnership between a logistics company and a developer of 3D robotic supply chain solutions is developing a new generation of systems for the South Korean warehousing market.
SYNUS Tech and Attabotics, the robotics and logistics companies respectively, have developed an integrated logistics system. It will be the basis of new micro-fulfillment solutions in South Korea based on the latest logistics automation technology. Attabotics condenses an average million square foot warehouse into a single, vertical storage structure that saves upwards of 85% of space, and uses 3D robotic shuttles internally to store and pick goods for workers to ship.
Where other warehouse robots are ground-based AGVs (automated guided vehicles) moving back and forth on the floor, Attabotics’ 3D robotic shuttles make use of height and the X,Y, and Z axes to store and pick goods. Using Attabotics technology at micro-fulfillment centers enables faster picking and shipping times, and the reduced warehouse footprint allows enterprises to place micro-fulfillment centers in high-density areas, reducing the emissions and carbon output typically associated with last-mile delivery.
“Attabotics is proud to partner with SYNUS Tech as they continue to grow as a leading technology company in the market,” said Scott Gravelle, Founder and CEO of Attabotics. “We’re excited to expand Attabotics’ reach into the South Korean market and are looking forward to working with others to bring smart factory total solutions to warehouses in the region.”
“SYNUS Tech is excited to lead the deployment of Korean micro-fulfillment market with Attabotics, the world’s first 3D storage system supplier,” said Chairman Joo Hun Kim, CEO of SYNUS Tech. “We will also willingly cooperate with Attabotics for the Asian regional market development beyond Korea.”
