Zebra expands its warehouse robot business

LINCOLNSHIRE - Zebra Technologies Corp. Thursday introduced a robot-based order-fulfillment system to help businesses improve their warehouse operations.

The fulfillment solution consists of three new autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs - FlexShelf, FlexShelf Guide and RollerTop Guide - as well as a new FetchCore fulfillment software package for order or batch picking.

These new offerings further extend Zebra's position as a leader in automating and digitizing critical workflows in warehouses, distribution and fulfillment centers, the company said. The system will help businesses as order volumes increase, labor pools get more competitive and customer expectations continue to rise, it added.

"In 2020, we introduced SmartSight as our first automation solution for front-of-store retail, and we welcomed Fetch and its broad portfolio of AMRs for material transport in logistics and manufacturing into the Zebra family just a few months ago," said James Lawton, vice president and general manager of Robotics Automation, Zebra Technologies. "Our new comprehensive fulfillment solution brings together the best of both companies to help our retail, wholesale and third-party logistics (3PL) customers overcome the biggest challenges in their case-picking workflows with automation that is truly intelligent."
