Ecommerce profitability in developed regions is currently constrained by final-mile delivery expenses.  Costs for online retailers and logistics to put packages into the hands of consignees and/or manage parcel returns cost effectively and efficiently in that short but perilously complex ‘final mile’ between local warehouses and/or fulfillment centers and consignee addresses consume > 50% of total shipping costs, escalating exponentially on explosive growth

  • Pilot - you have implemented your solution in a real-world scenario

Insights from previous testing (500 characters)

Modified the induction system to allow 50 packages at once (in batch) for rapid delivery by parcel driver. This allows a 4 minute stop by the driver to deliver 50 packages. The robots perform the put-a-way after the driver leaves. This is a dramatic time improvement over a locker system, which requires 60-70 minutes for 50 packages.
