Say goodbye to manual processes, automation is all the rage right now!

In order to save warehouse space by up to 75%, Nimble Robotics has acquired $65 million in a Series B fundraising round to build a national network of robotic fulfillment centers that can handle e-commerce orders. Midmarket retail clients of the San Francisco-based autonomous logistics company will be able to contract out the network’s warehousing and fulfillment activities. The fulfillment centers are set to boost speed and efficiency in selecting, packing, and shipping while lowering operational expenses.

Due to significant upfront costs and the need to remove current infrastructure to incorporate automation, few brands have adopted warehouse automation as of yet. Brands may outsource their operations using Nimble’s cutting-edge approach to automation and fulfillment, lowering the risk connected with a large upfront investment.

With the expansion of its facility footprint, Nimble will be able to deliver goods to 96% of Americans within two days thanks to its network of fulfillment centers. The growing engineering team at Nimble is made up of professionals from organizations with a history of fostering innovation, like Boston Dynamics, SpaceX, NASA, and GoogleX. 

Lower operating expenses, more productive employees, and quicker order fulfillment are all advantages of warehouse automation. The objective is to eventually include enterprise and individual sellers in the company’s clients in addition to mid market companies.

We predict that Nimble’s autonomous, tech-driven fulfillment strategy will be all the rage as more and more businesses come to understand the advantages of automation. 

Nimble Robotics could benefit from using a delivery management software like Locate2u to oversee the delivery procedure and coordinate the activities of numerous fulfillment facilities. Retailers can track shipments, keep an eye on delivery schedules, and optimize routes with delivery management software to cut costs and delivery times. Additionally, this software can notify retailers of any potential delays or problems and offer real-time information on the status of shipments.

The expansion of Nimble’s fulfillment network could transform the logistics sector in the future by giving retailers all around the country access to quicker and more effective fulfillment choices. It’ll be fascinating to see how other logistics companies react and adjust to this new approach to automation and fulfillment as the company continues to innovate and extend its network.
