Berkshire Grey is partnering with Advanced Handling Systems (AHS) to help companies grow despite supply chain constraints such as labour shortages and logistics challenges.
This partnership combines AI-enabled robotic automation and system design and integration services to deliver next-generation warehouse robotics to eCommerce and third-party logistics providers.
“Berkshire Grey’s Intelligent Enterprise Robotic solutions set the industry standard – they have the most robust robotics portfolio, handling the broadest range of SKUs,” said Drew Eubank, senior director of engineering at AHS. “AHS brings a 40-year customer portfolio that spans Fortune 100 brands to emerging eCommerce leaders and they know that robotic automation is core to their supply chain strategy if they’re going to remain competitive. That’s why we’re partnering with Berkshire Grey – to accelerate the integration of next-generation robotic solutions into our customers’ warehouses and facilities.”
Berkshire Grey’s AI-powered robotic solutions are aiding in increasing fulfillment throughput. AHS is evolving its innovation portfolio through this partnership to help companies streamline processes, improve employee productivity and deliver flexible solutions that scale.
“Only five percent of companies currently have any level of robotic automation in their warehouses and are at risk of losing market share because they can’t keep up with demand – we can help fix that,” said James Hendrickson, director of strategic partnerships and global alliances at Berkshire Grey. “Partnering with AHS allows us to deliver a comprehensive robotic automation portfolio, accelerate the adoption of AI and robotics and enable warehouse supply chains across industries to scale and grow.”
Berkshire Grey’s Partner Alliance program works with a select group of strategic partners to provide customers across retail, eCommerce, 3PL, grocery and package handling industries with scalable robotic solutions developed to improve fulfillment throughput while driving down operational costs.
