New report also highlights Seegrid’s position as a global leader in mobile robotics for material handling
Seegrid Corporation, the leader in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for material handling, today announced it’s been named #1 for all mobile robots in the United States and #1 in market share worldwide for automated tow tractors in the 2021 Mobile Robot report by Interact Analysis, an international market research authority for the supply chain automation industry. The report evaluates 2020 data and is focused on material handling applications in manufacturing and logistics environments.
Interact Analysis’ recognition comes during a year of continued breakthrough technology development for Seegrid. The company announced the expansion of its product portfolio with the launch of its first Palion Lift AMR, further extending the end-to-end capabilities of the company’s fleet of mobile robotic solutions. The company plans to continue to expand and strengthen its global market foothold across manufacturing, distribution, and e-commerce fulfillment.
“For nearly five years, we have been closely following the tremendous growth in the AGV and AMR market across the globe, and this report reinforces that Seegrid has successfully capitalized on this opportunity as the largest mobile robot vendor in the US market,” said Ash Sharma, Managing Director and Robotics and Warehouse Automation Division Lead for Interact Analysis. “Our research indicates that the mobile robot market will only continue growing given supply chain trends and the need for businesses to reduce costs, improve safety, and address labor shortages.”
Seegrid Palion AMRs have been performing and reporting on tasks safely and productively for more than 5 million autonomous miles in dynamic and high-traffic customer environments without a single personnel safety incident. Earlier this year, the company released upgrades to the Palion Tow Tractor and the Palion Pallet Truck, enabling the robotic fleet to better comprehend and make decisions using Seegrid’s AI-based algorithm with proprietary vision technology.
“The Interact Analysis report findings are further validation that our mobile automation and software solutions are the proven, trusted choice,” said Jim Rock, Seegrid’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our customers have come to count on us to help solve their supply chain and workflow issues by deploying some of the world’s best autonomous mobile robots and intelligent automation solutions.”
With a rapidly expanding AMR portfolio and capabilities, Seegrid recently added a Robots as a Service (RaaS) subscription model, providing customers with an alternative to facilitate access to the latest Seegrid Palion AMR fleet and enterprise software solutions.
The company will continue the rapid advancement of its mobile automation technologies through Blue Labs, Seegrid’s recently-formed in-house innovation acceleration team of world-class experts who are dedicated to identifying new technologies to build on its strong technical advantage. Blue Labs continues to conduct dedicated research and development efforts that will keep Seegrid positioned as a global AMR leader well into the future.
