Plus One Robotics’ parcel handling solutions surpass 500 million picks

Plus One Robotics, a provider of a parcel handling robotics platform claiming to performing over 1 million parcel picks each day in production, says its platform has reached over half a billion parcel picks globally. 

The company says the 500 million figure is “currently an industry leading metric”.

Erik Nieves, Plus One Robotics’ CEO and founder, says: “Our north star will always be to increase our customers’ total picks per day.

“To everyone at Plus One, 500 million represents more than just parcels picked, it’s a milestone demonstrating that our clients have come to rely on our tech every day. That’s a half billion parcels that were sorted on time and at quality.”

E-commerce currently accounts for 20 percent of total retail globally and is expected to hit 30 percent by 2030.

This growth, in combination with ongoing labor shortage issues, makes the implementation of automated solutions a key strategy for shipping and fulfillment companies across the world, with the global warehouse automation market estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate of approximately 15 percent from 2022 to 2030.

Plus One Robotics’ solutions for parcel induction and depalletization employ 3D sensors and AI-powered software with optimized robot grippers to pick and place disparate parcels within sortation or distribution centers.

Key to Plus One Robotics’ effectiveness is its unparalleled human-in-the-loop approach. Employees, remote or on premise, can supervise multiple robots from any location, speeding the robot’s ability to handle exceptions and facilitating machine learning that keeps downtime to a minimum, enabling 24/7 fulfillment.
