London robotics firm to deploy systems across Bristol logistics company
A London robotics and AI company has been approached by Huboo to deploy its autonomous robotic system across its warehouse and fulfilment centres.
By engaging BotsAndUs, Huboo will use robotics and AI technology to enhance the life of its warehouse employees, optimising operations, realising maximised efficiency and reducing costs. The robots will scan the entire warehouse, building up a digital model for real time analysis and insights on storage of goods in their space.
It utilises sustainable and human-centric methods to support a wide range of online retailers, including largescale, medium and small businesses in electronics, food and drink and cosmetics. Huboo’s hub model uses micro-warehouses, managed by teams of operatives who act as an extension of the brands they’re fulfilling orders for.
Paul Dodd, CTO and co-founder of Huboo said: “During the pandemic, we have clearly demonstrated the strength of our full-stack fulfilment solution at a time when the industry was facing severe challenges. Our unique hub model system has certainly made us stand out in our competitive industry.
“We’re proud of our fulfilment service that puts people at the heart of everything we do, and we’re always looking at ways to make life easier and better for our brilliant people.
“Our engagement with BotsAndUs and use of its robotics and AI will optimise Huboo’s warehouse space, allowing us to reduce costs and improve performance, while delivering a better working environment for our everyone at our fulfilment centres.”
Oana Jinga, BotsAndUs co-founder said: “There is great synergy between us and Huboo. We share a vision for the use of technology - we develop robotics and AI logistics solutions to drive better business decisions. Importantly, it’s about making life easier for humans rather than replacing them from operations.
Huboo has created an amazing environment and culture, where people can be authentic. They make bold decisions with a focus on growing the business and being leaders in their field.
“We are both committed to supporting the industry and our clients on that journey. Our autonomous robotics platforms and computer vision will revolutionise acceptance and tracking processes in warehouses.”
Nick Robson, Huboo’s head of robotics said: “As a technology company, data collection is critical to our efficiency and growth. We are excited to work with BotsAndUs on this application; the opportunity to capture live data can help drive real change to the industry.”
