inVia PickerWall: Start your shift with ordered goods ready for sorting and packing
The inVia PickerWall is a dynamic wall that inVia Picker robots build with each day’s set of ordered goods. The robots work independently, retrieving goods and putting them on the wall for warehouse workers to quickly pick, scan, and sort items for packing and shipping to customers.
This system eliminates dependencies and fosters a symbiotic collaboration between robots and people. Picker robots can operate around the clock, setting up orders overnight for picking when workers start their shifts the next day. The system allows workers to rotate more freely across other warehouse tasks, reducing pick time and warehouse walks. It speeds fulfillment, which pleases customers.
