How can AMR benefit your warehouse?

When considering options for an automated warehouse solution, AMR should be an option to consider. AMR (Autonomous Manoeuvrable Robots) can be used on a variety of scales in a wide range of industries. Likewise, this adaptable solution offers a technologically advanced option, putting it ahead of many other automated warehouse solutions. Typically, a warehouse operative will walk over 10 miles per shift without any automation at their disposal. On the other hand, the installation of AMR removes the need walking as far. Your employees will be able to concentrate more on efficiency.

What is AMR?

Firstly, as mentioned above, AMR stands for Autonomous Manoeuvrable Robots. Therefore, it is simply a solution for warehouses and other workplaces. Thus, this solution uses a fleet of robots to transport goods from different positions on your site.

Installing AMR in your warehouse will allow for:

  • Designed systems to interface easily with a range of management systems including: Warehouse Management System (WMS), Order Management System (OMS), Transportation Management System (TMS) and Yard Management Software (YMS).
  • 24-hour remote monitoring.
  • Easily configured systems.
  • Automatic charging zones.
  • Robotic payloads from 250kg to 1500kg.
