AutoStore unveils state-of-the-art R5 Pro robot to revolutionise e-commerce warehouses

In a significant leap forward in warehouse automation, robotic technology company AutoStore has launched its latest innovation, the R5 Pro Robot. This advanced robotic solution has been designed specifically to meet the unique requirements of large-scale e-commerce operations, offering improved space utilisation, superior performance and significant cost savings for companies operating multi-shift logistics at scale.

The R5 Pro Robot is poised to make a lasting impact in the world of logistics automation, promising a wide range of benefits that address the challenges of modern e-commerce warehousing.

Increased productivity

One of the outstanding features of the R5 Pro Robot is its ability to significantly increase productivity. By deploying the R5 Pro in large AutoStore facilities, we are able to reduce the number of robots required on the same grid by up to 15% compared to its predecessor, the R5 Robot. This reduction not only enables better routing and system efficiency, but also translates into improved productivity during extended operations.

Continuous operations

The R5 Pro robot is equipped with a Lithium-Titanium-Oxide (LTO) battery with fast charging capabilities. This technology ensures increased availability of individual robots in multi-shift operations, a critical advantage in the fast-paced world of e-commerce.

Space and cost optimisation

With the LTO battery, organisations can benefit from up to 86% fewer chargers, resulting in more efficient use of warehouse space. This means that additional SKU storage can be accommodated or the required physical footprint can be reduced. In addition, customers achieve significant cost savings related to electrical infrastructure, making the R5 Pro Robot a cost-effective choice for large-scale logistics operations.

The R5 Pro provides an advantage by increasing productivity per robot during extended operations, optimising space utilisation and reducing total cost of ownership, ultimately improving the customer experience while increasing profitability.

The introduction of the R5 Pro Robot marks a milest moment in the evolution of e-commerce logistics and promises to reshape the warehouse automation landscape for years to come. AutoStore’s commitment to innovation and customer-centric solutions continues to drive the industry forward, revolutionising the way large-scale operations optimise efficiency and profitability.
