Berkshire Grey Partners With Atos to Automate Supply Chain Processes
October 11, 2021
Berkshire Grey and Atos have announced a partnership to accelerate automation of supply chain operations. The two companies will bring Intelligent Enterprise Robotic solutions to retail, transportation and logistics (RTL) customers to help them overcome strained supply chains.
“Berkshire Grey and Atos believe digital transformation and robotics are two sides of the same coin for those looking to transform the supply chain for today’s on-demand world,” said Neil Berry, senior vice president and general manager for EMEA at Berkshire Grey. “We look forward to working together to provide the holistic, flexible and cost-effective warehouse automation and supply chain transformation solutions our shared customers value in order to meet the needs of high velocity and high volume order fulfillment.”
The partnership allows retailers and logistics providers to integrate end-to-end robotic solutions within existing IT and operations ecosystems, helping them to meet surging demand through enhanced supply chain visibility and automation with minimal manual intervention, the companies said. Berkshire Grey’s automated picking, mobility and orchestration solutions augment existing warehouse staff to increase throughput and productivity throughout the supply chain. Atos said it will implement and integrate Berkshire Grey’s AI-enabled robotic solutions into clients’ complete supply chain ecosystems to ensure information flows across systems of record as smoothly as materials transition through the warehouse.
“Many organizations are considering implementing robotics and automation, but they struggle with implementing the transformative change needed to achieve the full benefits,” said Guillaume Beuscart, senior vice president global head of retail, transportation and logistics at Atos. “Together, Berkshire Grey and Atos can provide retail, transportation and logistics clients with holistic solutions that meet their needs.”
Atos will also become part of Berkshire Grey’s Partner Alliance (BGPA) as a solutions integrator partner. The program includes a select group of strategic partners that provide customers with scalable robotic solutions developed to improve fulfillment throughput while driving down operational costs.
The two companies said they will showcase their offerings at Parcel+Post Expo, held in Vienna, Austria from Oct. 12-14.
