Pittsburgh, PA, June 29, 2020 – IAM Robotics, inventors of the world’s first autonomous mobile manipulation robot, has been named a Top 50 Warehouse Automation Company by LogisticsIQ, a leading research and advisory firm.
In recognizing the Top 50 companies, LogisticsIQ analyzed and categorized automation into four categories: Material Handling Systems, Autonomous Mobile Robots, Automatic Identification & Data Capture Systems, and Warehouse Management Systems.
IAM Robotics is part of their Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) market group and one of only 18 AMR companies named in the Top 50.
“We are focused on creating the most capable robots that bring real value to operators of warehouses and distribution centers,” said Tom Galluzzo, CEO and founder of IAM Robotics. “But it is always nice to be recognized for our hard work. LogisticsIQ is a respected company in the supply chain and logistics industry, so their recognition means a lot to us.
The strength of the IAM Robotics Swift™ robot has led to several accolades in recent years. Swift is the company’s debut into robotics, and it has made quite the impression as the world’s first AMMR or autonomous mobile manipulation robot, capable of picking and transporting products like a human worker.
IAM Robotics innovates again by delivering its industry-leading robotics expertise in its Bolt™ robot. Bolt is a collaborative autonomous mobile robot, designed to work with and around people for handling and transporting materials within and between zones inside a traditional warehouse environment. Bolt has a flexible interface for multiple payload options that can be used for various applications.
LogisticsIQ reports that it forecasts substantial growth opportunities in the warehouse automation equipment space owing to several structural trends in consumer demand within eCommerce, retailing, and 3PL logistics.
