UnboxSort is designed to enable e-commerce retailers to scale up their logistics to handle high parcel volume. Unbox Robotics’ patented system deploys a fleet of Swarm Intelligence-powered autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to work in compact spaces at fulfilment centers and warehouses to sort packages vertically into smart racks.

It can also automate the sorting of returned goods according to suppliers, location or product types, and more. UnboxSort reportedly makes it possible for warehouses of any size to automate themselves and transition to Industry 4.0.

By using the unused vertical space in warehouses and sortation centers, the solution can scan, sort and dispatch packages in a space-, time- and cost-efficient manner.

According to the company: “The UnboxSort improves personnel productivity by 3 times, increases space utilization of warehousing area by 2x and works at 99.9 percent sorting efficiency with an installation timeline of less than two weeks.

“It is able to deliver 2,000 to 20,000 parcels per hour (PPH) to suit business needs of any sized retailer — from small-sized e-commerce startups to large-scale multinational e-commerce companies. The solution is also extremely dynamic and scalable, giving logistics players enough customization over their operations.”

The solution was recently unveiled at the India Warehousing Show 2022 in New Delhi.
