Pickle Robots Unload Trucks

We believe the best working experience is one where machines do the heavy lifting and people do the problem solving. Our robots work with people in the messy world of warehouse loading docks, reducing the real physical pain of unloading and radically amplifying what each person can accomplish.

SOLUTIONS

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 currently unloads non-palletized goods at over 800 PPH and is getting faster every day. Our pilot deployments are already underway and we start commercial deliveries in Summer 2022.

Automated Sort

Sorting outbound packages is error prone and labor intensive. Our sorting robot is already deployed around the country and has millions of real picks. Sitting at the end of a conveyor, it accurately picks at a consistent 500PPH and sorts into up to five gaylords. If positioned along the side of the belt, it scales with the number of robots, so two pick at 1000 PPH, three pick at 1500, and so on.

It’s a busy time for logistics. E-commerce is booming, and warehouses can’t keep up with the demand. The challenges are daunting — tasks are labor-intensive, the pace is frantic, and staffing shortages are perennial.
