The logistics software specialist inconso and leading providers of collaborative robotic solutions, Fetch Robotics and Locus Robotics, have combined their strengths and entered strategic partnerships.

As a provider of comprehensive supply chain software solutions, inconso expands its product portfolio with an integrated approach for implementing autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) in warehouses.

In this strategic partnership the Körber Business Area Supply Chain, which includes inconso, acts as a global reseller, advisor and integrator of Fetch’s AMR solutions and cloud robotics software.

“Our partnership with Fetch Robotics allows us to extend the automation opportunity for our customers across the wide range of workflows involved in material movements in the warehouse,” says John Santagate, vice-president of robotics at Körber Supply Chain – Software.

Fetch Robotics’ solutions and services are deployed in leading distribution, fulfillment, and manufacturing centres around the world. By combining autonomous mobile robotics with the power of the cloud, the Fetch Cloud Robotics Platform provides on-demand automation solutions for material handling and inventory management.

Within the Business Area Körber Supply Chain, the partnership with Locus Robotics is also being expanded. Locus Robotics’ expertise is primarily on the use of collaborative robots in retail and third-party logistics (3PL). Both partnerships enable simplified integration projects for the smooth interplay of software and hardware components.
