Wise Robotics, supplier of flexible warehouse automation solutions, is partnering with world leader in vision-guided autonomous robotic forklifts, VisionNav to help UK operators boost order fulfillment and reduce the ongoing costs associated with running a warehouse in the face of well-documented supply chain challenges.

“We know the demand for automation in the UK warehouse market continues to grow as businesses seek to find solutions to labour and order fulfillment challenges. This partnership between Wise Robotics and VisionNav enables us to work together with businesses to design robotics solutions that meet the needs of their warehouse operation,” said Head of Robotics at Wise Robotics, Joe Daft.

Set up in 2016 by The University of Hong Kong and The University of Tokyo, VisionNav supplies warehouse robots which use vision-based intelligence to automate materials handling, storage and retrieval. This makes its automated forklift models far more adaptable to a business’ existing warehouse layout, and much easier to deploy. Currently, its solutions are used by 150 businesses in eight countries around the world.

“There’s no one-way-fits-all approach when it comes to automation in the warehouse and that’s why partnerships like this between providers can bring major benefits to the market and our networks. Our plan is to continually grow the range of automated solutions we can offer to warehouses in the UK, and our strategic collaboration with VisionNav is another exciting step in our journey,” said Daft.
