inVia Robotics, the provider of robotics warehouse automation solutions for e-commerce fulfillment centers, announced that Rakuten Super Logistics (RSL) has deployed inVia’s autonomous warehouse robotics technology within its Nevada operations. Using the inVia Picker robots and cloud-based Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) management system, the company expects to increase its e-commerce fulfillment and warehouse productivity by more than 300 percent as the solution scales with data collection and optimization.
Rakuten Super Logistics (RSL) is a national e-commerce order fulfillment company that has been working in order fulfillment technology since 2001. Clients nationwide rely on RSL’s proven expertise and ability to offer customers scalability, flexibility, and cost savings.
“For RSL and our broad array of clients, inVia Robotics presents an exciting opportunity to scale demand, manage costs and improve inventory accuracy utilizing a RaaS model,” explains Michael Manzione, RSL’s Chief Executive Officer.
inVia Robotics supports e-commerce companies in improving fulfillment and streamlining supply chain processes among growing demand and competition in the space. inVia’s goods-to-person-fulfillment, a subscription-based model, was chosen ahead of competitors due to its ability to increase efficiencies across many operating cost layers within RSL’s facilities. The company’s fulfillment needs extend throughout several warehouses across the U.S., among major population centers that support expedited delivery for consumers. inVia’s mobile robot automation can optimize RSL’s U.S. operations at a scalable rate.
The initial pilot deployment was completed in RSL’s Las Vegas-based warehouse earlier this month in only three days. inVia’s patented autonomous mobile Picker robots will work to increase productivity and fulfilment across an array of warehouse operations, including picking, packing, goods replenishment and conducting cycle count.
