AutoStore’s new R5 Pro Robot for large-scale operations frees up space for additional products in the warehouse and improves Robot efficiency at a lower total cost of ownership.
NEDRE VATS, Norway, [October 23, 2023] – AutoStore™, the leading robotic technology company, is pleased to introduce the R5 Pro Robot, the latest version of the company’s field-proven R5 Robot. This new robotic solution is designed to address the specific demands of large-scale e-commerce operations, emphasizing better space usage, higher performance, and reduced total ownership costs for companies running multishift operations at scale.
Carlos Fernandez, Chief Product Officer at AutoStore, points to the growing demand for large, high-throughput systems in the e-commerce sector: “The R5 Pro offers an edge by augmenting productivity per Robot during extended operations, optimizing space usage, and reducing the total cost of ownership, ultimately enhancing the customer experience while boosting profitability.”
The R5 Pro is designed to meet the needs of e-commerce organizations with large-scale multishift operations. Key features and benefits of the R5 Pro Robot include:
AutoStore’s Chief Product Officer Fernandez continues, “The introduction of the R5 Pro improves both our market position and the value proposition for customers managing very large systems and high-throughput operations, typically characterized by extended operating hours and a substantial robot count.”
One prominent AutoStore customer, Tobias Sjölin, CTO, Fulfillment, and logistics at Boozt, shares the customer perspective: “As a leading e-commerce company, we are always looking for new ways to optimize warehouse operations. We are excited about the R5 Pro, the latest addition to the AutoStore R5 series, which will bring tangible benefits to customers with large AutoStore systems that require speed.”
“Being able to reduce charging time during multishift operations offers great potential for improved productivity. The projected higher productivity per robot means we would need significantly fewer robots and chargers to achieve our required throughput – and also fit more SKUs within our existing Grid. But in the end, it is all about the total cost of ownership. All these incremental savings add up over time and allow us to remain competitive.”
