A logistics hub in Romania operated by Maersk and iB Cargo is getting in on the autonomous robot trend. This is all thanks to UK tech startup Dexory. 

Dexory has a perfect logistics solution 

The UK-based company is on a quest to transform logistics through artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. Dexory serves several industries, including logistics and supply chain, manufacturing, and cargo handling. It also serves the e-commerce and retail fulfillment sector. 

The company uses a combination of hardware and software to service customers. Dexory’s robot autonomously navigates the warehouse to capture high-definition 3D scans of the space as well as any labels and barcodes on pallets, parcels, or products, with the ability to scan warehouses of any shape or size. 

Robots in action 

CEO and co-founder of Dexory told Parcel and Postal Technology International: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Maersk and iB Cargo and bring the power of real-time data and insights to this impressive site in Romania, supporting a powerful company in interior decorations. Teams across the board have already embraced the Dexory technology and are constantly using our digital twin to make more informed decisions and drive efficiency.”

The startup has also been linked to Menzies Aviation, which operates worldwide. Dexory has assisted the aviation service business in transforming its operations through AI and autonomous solutions. Menzies Aviation has used Dexory’s solutions to automate its stock processes. 

Dexory’s solutions are helping clients like Menzies Aviation with crucial business outcomes: 

  • Helping operations become more efficient. 
  • Saving valuable time so client employees can focus on other tasks. 
  • Assisting with inventory management and maximizing space. 

Autonomous robots are undoubtedly helping logistics companies meet demand. While humans can step aside and focus on other critical logistics operations, the robots can move pallets and give insightful data so that operations can run as smoothly as possible. 

The robotics trend seems to be taking the world by storm. Even parcel carrier specialists like UPS are using robotics to improve efficiency. 

Autonomous robot market 

Allied Market Research reports the global autonomous mobile robot market is projected to witness considerable growth due to a spike in the use of automation solutions in various industries such as healthcare, automotive, logistics, and hospitality. 

Meanwhile, Mordor Intelligence reports the use of robotics in vehicle manufacturing is expected to continue to grow fast enough to speed up production. “Auto manufacturers, like Toyota and BMW, are investing to leverage what they already know about robotics and manufacturing to increase their share in the robotics market. For multiple years, BMW has partnered with Nvidia to develop mobile robots for internal use in their factories, primarily around automated material handling at the last mile.”
