HOW IT WORKS

Flexible, End-to-End Automated Warehouse Platform

Intelligent software orchestrates a fleet of vision-enabled autonomous robots to induct, store and retrieve products within the unique structure. The result is an optimized high-density, mixed-SKU pallet that can be loaded onto a trailer in minutes for customer delivery.

REINVENT THE WAREHOUSE

A Different Kind of Automated Warehouse

pallet-of-microwaves-inbound-symbotic-system
Inbound cells process incoming pallets for induction to the storage structure.

Robotic arms equipped with computer vision and proprietary end-of-arm tools depalletize, singulate and optimize the orientation of cases entering the structure. Each cell is capable of processing 1,700 cases per hour. For floor-loaded trailers, cases are digitized and inducted to the system via conveyors.

SymBot autonomous robots transport cases with speed and efficiency.

The robots pick cases from induction buffers and are intelligently routed to place cases in variable height bays across the dynamic storage structure. As orders are processed smart tasking and routing software directs autonomous robots to pick and deliver cases to outbound cells, moving at speeds up to 20+ mph.

Outbound palletization cells efficiently construct high-density, delivery-ready pallets.

A pair of vision-enabled robots work in coordination to intelligently palletize cases for the highest density and stability at a cell rate of 1,350 cases per hour. Outbound cell robots build and wrap delivery-ready pallets designed for each store’s unique layout.

Intelligent A.I. software orchestrates and powers the system.

A comprehensive proprietary software architecture that includes a controls layer, routing-tasking algorithms and powerful data analytics is integrated with a customer’s full WMS to orchestrate and drive the system.

END-TO-END SYSTEM

The Symbotic System is an end-to-end solution for increased agility, control and efficiency.

Intelligent Robots for Relentless Efficiency

In each end-to-end system hundreds of autonomous robots with advanced vision and sensing capabilities work together in harmony. These bots build optimized mixed-case pallets with relentless efficiency and industry-leading speed and density.

Unique Distributed Storage Structure Maximizes Inventory Flexibility

A first-of-its-kind storage structure and distributed storage algorithm maximizes flexibility and enables the highest inventory density in the market. The result is a 30-60% reduction in building footprint compared to the best-in-class alternative.

Seamless Orchestration Powered by Artificial Intelligence

A.I.-powered software seamlessly orchestrates hundreds of autonomous robots. Our comprehensive proprietary software manages the entire end-to-end system from case digitization and complex bot routing to sequencing, planning and building the perfect mixed-SKU pallet.

EfficiEncy & Accuracy

The highest efficiency and accuracy of any automated warehouse solution in the market.

Throughput metrics vary based on the size of the Symbotic System and are scalable.

WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY

“The need for accuracy and speed in the supply chain has never been more visible, and we’re confident that now is the time to move even faster by scaling Symbotic’s technology to our entire regional distribution center network.”

David Guggina Executive Vice President, Supply Chain Operations, Walmart U.S.

FLEXIBLE IMPLEMENTATION

Implement in New or Existing Facilities

The Symbotic System is flexible enough to be implemented in new or existing operations. The modular design makes it easily scalable.

Retrofit

If you are looking to get more capacity out of existing assets, the System can be installed in new or existing operations, processing the same volume in significantly less space. Implementation of a module often frees up space for subsequent modules – further increasing capacity.

Modular

The Symbotic System is implemented in modules like Lego building blocks consisting of inbound and outbound cells plus a storage structure. Modules are customizable based on the needs of your business such as case volume, order profiles, and product characteristics.

Scalable

As your business grows additional modules can be added seamlessly using the space freed up by the initial implementation. And additional robots can be added to support increased volume over time.
