Global logistics company Maersk has agreed to take part in a proof-of-concept trial with Dexory, which was formerly known as BotsAndUs, to collect data on logistics processes.
To support Maersk has launched a fleet of Dexory autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) in its warehouse in Kettering.
The robots have been deployed alongside Dexory’s integrated data platform, which it claims is already gathering key data insights in the Maersk facility.
Maersk Growth, the company’s venture arm, invested in Dexory’s latest round of funding and the two firms seem set to continue their collaborative partnership with this trial.
Dexory hopes that its robots and data visualisation platform will support Maersk to measure, track and locate goods across every logistics step, from inbound to storage to outbound.
Andrei Danescu, chief executive of Dexory, said: “It’s reassuring to see such trust placed in Dexory from globally recognised logistics leaders like Maersk.
“We’re looking forward to bringing Maersk valuable data insights and expanding into other Maersk facilities.”
Within the Kettering facility, the robots have been used to explore the automation of inventory management and acceptance processes with the aim of providing customers with improved visibility and a greater level of access to their inventory.
If the trial proves a success and Dexory’s products continue ‘transforming Maersk’s logistics’, as it claims, it is likely that the technology will be implemented in other Maersk facilities in the UK and maybe even across the globe.
Dexory (Stand i206) will be exhibiting at IntraLogisteX 2023, which will be co-located with Robotics and Automation 2023. To attend to visit for free or find out more, visit www.intralogistex.co.uk or www.roboticsandautomation.co.uk.
