Lower your operational costs for retail, wholesale and eCommerce fulfillment: Achieve 2X performance per sq ft, with a high-volume AI-driven solution built to operate reliably in the toughest warehouse environments


BEDFORD, MA. , January 31, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)Berkshire Grey, Inc., a leader in AI-enabled robotic solutions that automate supply chain processes, is excited to announce the latest and 4th generation of their BG Robotic Sortation solution. This latest version of the solution integrates cutting-edge engineering and insights derived from nearly a decade’s worth of warehouse production picks, representing the next generation of order processing and fulfillment in the industry.

With businesses facing increased challenges around labor shortages and escalating space constraints, the BG Robotic Sortation solution (BG RPS/RSPS) offers an automated system that picks and sorts single units and inner packs for each, less-than-case, break-pack, and split-case operations from single-SKU homogeneous containers into designated outbound containers for store and wholesale replenishment and large eCommerce order fulfillment.

  • Lower Operational Costs: Offering the flexibility to choose between robotic or manual induction options, significantly mitigating labor shortages with an impressive up to 50% reduction in labor requirements compared to traditional sorters, while increasing retained employee satisfaction.
  • Maximizes Efficiency: Maximize rates by picking all donor container items needed per order in one touch, with zero-walking pick/pack (RSPS) or zero-learning robotic induction (RPS), sorting directly to store containers with industry leading container utilization and automated takeaway and exchange.
  • Extend the life of your buildings: Doublingthe performance per square foot, the solution optimizes space utilization; easily installed into brownfield or on mezzanines, facilitating the processing of 100’s to 1000’s of orders simultaneously.
  • Flexible Configuration: Easily handle increasing demands as you scale, with ~100% SKU coverage, advanced orchestration enabling dynamic store allocation and the ability to add modules to accommodate growth.
  • Equipment Agnostic: Seamlessly integrates with existing building equipment, including conveyors, ASRS systems, totes, and more, providing a comprehensive and harmonious automation solution.
