Warehouse automation company Geek+ Robotics says it has sold more than 10,000 units of its autonomous mobile robots.
The company has seen a dramatic increase in demand for warehouse robots from sectors such as e-commerce and automotive supply chains.
Geek+ revealed the new sales figure in an update about its activity during Singles Day in China, occurring annually on November 11th, traditionally one of the busiest in the e-commerce calendar.
Other Singles Day milestones Geek+ listed include:
- delivery of 8.11 million orders within 72 hours;
- 86 per cent delivery rate in 48 hours;
- accuracy rate of 99,97 per cent; and
- partnership with more than 100 brands.
The company also highlighted that 4,000 robotic units were used for large-scale cluster scheduling.
And the “largest-scale robotics warehouse application” during the peak order volumes and delivery period of Singles Day.
Geek Plus was established in 2014 with fewer than 10 people, and now employs more than 700.
It raised more than $150 million in funding last year and is looking to expand beyond its Asian market into Europe and America.
Moreover, it has been adding more products to its range, which now includes a driverless forklift.
