Automated Unload

The loading dock is a physically demanding work environment: it’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter, boxes are heavy, injuries are common, and turnover is high. We’ve designed a robot that helps people work faster and smarter - it reliably unloads import containers of non-palletized goods in as little as 90 minutes.
