Carts are a critical component in many of today’s warehouses. They are used to move inventory from one area of the warehouse to another. In a typical Savant cart picking scenario, pickers pull product from shelves, racks or bin locations and place them on mobile carts to fulfill sales orders. When the product has been picked, the warehouse worker manually pushes the cart from the picking area to a pack/ship area. But what if carts could be moved from one area to another … automatically?
Savant Software has partnered with Fetch Robotics and their CartConnect robots to dramatically enhance the movement of carts. After picking orders and placing them on the FetchCart, the cart is positioned at a “pick-up” station where a CartConnect robot is assigned to move the cart to the next area. When the FetchCart is unloaded, the next available CartConnect robot automatically moves the cart back into the picking zones.
