The Symbotic System delivers unmatched efficiency, accuracy and agility while reducing costs. The flexibility to push inventory to stores, as well as pull inventory through the supply chain on-demand, is a powerful competitive advantage for Symbotic clients.
Supply chain leaders are challenged by limited labor availability, increasing operating costs, out-of-stocks, SKU proliferation and misalignment of inventory with demand. Traditional warehouse automation doesn’t fully address the challenges. As the backbone of commerce Symbotic transforms the flow of goods and the economics of the supply chain for its customers. The revolutionary A.I.-powered robotic automation platform is designed for the increased need for efficiency, speed and flexibility.
Imagine if you could store a limitless number of SKUs in your existing warehouse.
Imagine if a single person could load a trailer in minutes instead of hours.
Imagine if you could process the same order volume in 30-60% less space.
Modernizing the warehouse allows consumers to get what they need faster and creates benefits for everyone including workers, stores, customers and their local communities.
The flexibility to pull inventory through the supply on-demand is a powerful competitive advantage for Symbotic clients. Products flow through the supply chain seamlessly as both inbound and outbound shipments are quickly processed. The high-density mixed-SKU pallets eliminate wasted space and reduce transportation costs.
The warehouse becomes a strategic asset through dramatically lower operating costs, increased efficiency and faster inventory turns. The Symbotic System offers increased capacity, flexibility and accuracy combined with reduced stockouts. Warehouse workers acquire new technology skills and benefit from safer and less physically demanding working conditions.
Fewer trucks are required with ultra-tall, highly stable pallets that maximize the cube of the trailer, resulting in transportation savings. Trucks can be loaded and unloaded in minutes by a single worker, reducing the amount of time a trailer is tied up and freeing up dock doors for more efficient yard management.
Aisle-ready pallets delivered to stores means workers don’t waste time sorting products in the backroom. They can move products directly from the truck to the selling floor – eliminating wasted travel between departments and reducing the time it takes to restock shelves and reducing stockouts. This means store associates can spend more time helping customers and less time on non-value-add tasks.
Smart pallets built to route-stop sequence allow for more efficient and accurate delivery to customers. Multiple verifiable checkpoints in the system ensure 99.9999% accuracy, resulting in fewer mispicks and higher customer satisfaction. Highly dense and stable pallets reduce damage in the warehouse and enroute to the customer.
When shelves are quickly stocked and replenished with the right items at the right time, consumers can find the products they need when they need them. This increases customer satisfaction and reduces frustration caused by out-of-stock inventory. The in-store shopping experience is improved by having fewer workers in aisles stocking shelves.
The Symbotic System is modular and scalable depending on the needs of the business. A typical implementation results in several tangible benefits for customers.
DRAMATICALLY LOWER OPERATING COST
5-9X OUTBOUND EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT
30-60% FOOTPRINT REDUCTION
EXCEPTIONAL SKU AGILITY
LOWER TRANSPORTATION COSTS
FASTER INVENTORY TURNS & FEWER STOCKOUTS
The Symbotic System turns the warehouse into a strategic asset – increasing capacity, speed, and assortment while reducing the costs associated with inventory carrying, transportation, capital expense, product damage, labor, and related injuries.
SUPPLY CHAIN INNOVATION
Autonomous robots with advanced vision and sensing capabilities work together to build optimized mixed-case pallets with relentless efficiency and industry-leading speed. The robots are equipped with a powerful neural processor and traction control that enables unprecedented speed and precision in maneuvering. A proprietary routing algorithm enables the bots, moving at up to 20+ mph, to do this with unmatched efficiency.
A first-of-its-kind storage structure and distributed storage algorithm maximizes flexibility and enables the highest inventory density in the market. The system can handle virtually any case – from the smallest to the largest, regardless of packaging. It achieves 99.9999% task accuracy via several computer vision systems that digitize each case entering and validate each case picked from the system.
The modular system is customizable based on the needs of your business, including case volume, order profiles, and product characteristics. Modules and cells can be added seamlessly. This makes the System easily scalable. And because the System takes up significantly less space than traditional material handling systems, additional space is freed up for expansion as the business grows.
Predictable inventory means consumers can shop with confidence for the products they need, leading to higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty.
An efficient supply chain enables stores to operate profitably without passing on additional costs to consumers, resulting in savings for both consumers and retailers.
The mobile robots in the Symbotic System are charged via ultracapacitors instead of batteries, reducing hazardous waste materials in the warehouse that are harmful to the environment.
