GXO expands partnership with Robotic Assistance Devices to enhance safety and security

GXO Logistics, one of the world’s largest contract logistics companies, is expanding its technology partnership with Robotic Assistance Devices, a subsidiary of Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions.

GXO is developing advanced security solutions with RAD to improve the safety and efficiency of its customers’ logistics operations.

Thomas Nelson, senior director of security at GXO, says: “GXO’s customers depend on our technological expertise and operational excellence and having a robust security program is a key part of the solution suite we offer.

“By combining our logistics expertise with RAD’s innovative robotics, we’ve deployed even more cost-effective solutions that didn’t exist just a few years ago. We look forward to continuing our partnership with RAD as we increase safety and drive efficiencies for our customers.”

GXO’s commitment to new technology gives customers the benefits of improved performance, lower costs and greater end-consumer satisfaction.

The company has been using RAD technology since 2018 and is in the process of implementing a wide assortment of robotic security devices across 15 sites. GXO plans to increase this initial deployment by nearly 20 percent in 2023.

The devices perform a variety of tasks, including video surveillance and analytics, virtual barriers and added inventory security for high-value product, and they combine robotics with advanced video surveillance and analytics, artificial intelligence and software to enhance safety and security.

Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD, says: “It’s a pleasure to work with GXO on successfully deploying advanced security solutions. In 2022, we saw more deployments for GXO than in any other year of our partnership and we foresee many more fruitful years of working with GXO.”

GXO deploys RAD’s cost-effective security solutions to complement existing staff and enhance safety. Security robots perform repetitive tasks, often in remote locations, acting as a force-multiplier and immediately broadening the reach of human security staff.
