DK Fulfilment to trial conveyor robots

DK Fulfilment is set to trial Intelligent Robots’ RPUCK autonomous mobile conveyor robots at its Coventry fulfilment centre.

The trials are scheduled to begin in June and have been awarded a grant by the government agency, Innovate UK.

When using the RPUCK system, workers pick orders directly on to a trolley. Once a trolley is full, a robot delivers a new empty trolley to the picker and takes the full load directly to the packing and dispatch area of the store.

Mark Elward, managing director of DK Fulfilment, commented: “Third party logistics (3PL) warehouses have traditionally been manually driven, but with the growth in online retail and the well-documented warehouse labour shortages, more and more 3PLs simply must consider automation as a way of improving operational efficiency, so we are delighted to be working with Intelligent Robots on this exciting trial.”
