Chinese logistics robot maker secures new funding

Geek+, the Chinese logistics robot manufacturer whose clients include Alibaba, has secured $14m in a new funding round. According to a report published today (20 March) by China Money Network, the funding round was led by Vertex Venture Holdings, a subsidiary of Singapore’s Temasek, with participation from Banyan Capital and Volcanic Stone Investment.

Geek+ makes low-riding warehouse robots that can help to select and transport warehouse shelves and packages.

The company said that hundreds of its robots are already operating in warehouses and e-commerce fulfilment centres in China.

China is now the world’s biggest buyer of industrial robots – having overtaken Japan in 2013 – but the majority of these bots are currently being produced outside China.
