In 2021, wheel.me forged a partnership with a prominent global automotive manufacturer. The company operates over 50 plants worldwide, using manual labor as the primary method for material handling. Facing challenges such as a volatile job market, soaring labor costs, and industry demands for enhanced speed and efficiency, they had been investigating alternatives such as AGVs and AMRs for years.
After wheel.me conducted a successful proof of concept on-site in early 2022, the company committed to deploying 300 robots across two of its facilities in the US and Europe. The initial phase, launched in November 2022, already boasts 24 robots efficiently moving materials to the assembly line.
The eagerly anticipated second phase of the project is scheduled to commence later in 2023.
In early 2022 wheel.me partnered with one of the world’s leading global logistics providers, operating in approximately 2100 locations.
With their active innovation team and a high demand for automation to decrease costs and increase efficiency and reliability, the company committed to approximately 440 robots in 2 warehouses in Europe. As of 2023, 28 robots have been commissioned and are operating in one of their sites.
Within Q3 and Q4 of 2023, the remaining robots are being deployed. The scope of this endeavor is considerable, encompassing seamless integration with other AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) and automated machinery at both locations, a testament to the determined pursuit of logistic excellence.
