Japanese 3PL company Suzuyo & Co are set to deploy Autonomous Mobile Robtos (AMRs) at its Shinshizuoka distribution centre, following a successful proof of concept (POC) by Musashi AI and 634AI.

Suzuyo tested Musashi AI’s AMR powered by MAESTRO, a platform-agnostic control tower for logistics automation, developed by Israeli company 634AI. During the POC, the AMRs autonomously moved pallets in the facility from one location to another smoothly and efficiently.

The companies are now working to scale-up discussions to deploy 634AI’s MAESTRO navigation and fleet management software with MusashiAI’s AMRs across Suzuyo’s distribution centres in Japan.

Ken Kawashima, general manager of 3PL business development department at Suzuyo, said: “We are always thinking about improving the safety, quality and productivity of our distribution centres and providing our customers with a high level of distribution service.

“We believe MAESTRO offers a virtually unique ability to manage AMRs, and allows humans and robots to work together in sophisticated hybrid environments. Both Musashi AI and 634AI have the power to make the world’s logistics network function more efficiently than ever. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with these companies.”
