Caja Robotics, a robotic and flexible goods-to-person solutions provider for order fulfilment, is working with Bastian Solutions, a Toyota Advanced Logistics company, to integrate its robotic systems across the US.
The two companies plan to leverage each other’s capabilities in the material handling space to serve a range of projects and customer sites.
Caja’s solution combines two robots: a lift robot and a cart robot, that work together to optimise order picking operations. With Caja’s advanced AI-powered software, the robots move bins between workstations and the inventory, constantly optimising inventory management.
“We are excited to collaborate with Caja Robotics and add their flexible and modular robots to our solutions roster,” said Matt Kuper, vice president of global sales and applications at Bastian Solutions.
“Caja’s technology is very impressive as it adapts, scales and responds to the needs and demands of our customers, whether on large or small sites. Our business collaboration comes perfectly in time as customers consider and gear up with flexible automation for peak demands in 2022. We look forward to working with Caja and introducing their technology.”
Additionally, Bastian Solutions portfolio includes mobile robots, automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS), automated guided vehicles (AGV) and goods-to-person technology. The company also provides custom robotic and conveyor manufacturing, as well as material handling software. With offices across the US, Bastian Solutions said it plans to evaluate opportunities to deploy Caja at the right automated order fulfilment opportunities.
Ilan Cohen, CEO at Caja Robotics, added: “Bastian Solutions is a leading supply chain integrator, so this is a significant step for the future of Caja in the USA. Together, we will expand our US foothold, expand sales efforts, and provide Caja solutions to a variety of customers to solve the ever-increasing challenge of fulfilling orders, especially during peak demand. We’re excited for the collaboration and opportunities to come.”
