Berkshire Grey has teamed up with Advanced Handling Systems to help businesses expand despite labor shortages and logistical challenges.

FREMONT, CA: Berkshire Grey, Inc., a pioneer in AI-enabled robotic solutions that automate supply chain processes, has teamed up with Advanced Handling Systems (AHS), the top system integrator of fulfillment and distribution solutions for the supply chain, to help businesses expand despite labor shortages and logistical challenges.

"Berkshire Grey's Intelligent Enterprise Robotic solutions set the industry standard – they have the most robust robotics portfolio, handling the broadest range of SKUs," said Drew Eubank, Sr. Director of Engineering at AHS. "AHS brings a 40-year customer portfolio that spans Fortune 100 brands to emerging eCommerce leaders and they know that robotic automation is core to their supply chain strategy if they're going to remain competitive. That's why we're partnering with Berkshire Grey – to accelerate the integration of next generation robotic solutions into our customers' warehouses and facilities."

This alliance will bring next-generation warehouse robotics to the world's largest and most well-known eCommerce and third-party logistics (3PL) providers, combining AI-enabled robotic automation with system design and integration services.

Berkshire Grey's AI-powered robotic solutions enhance fulfillment throughout the eCommerce and 3PL industries by boosting fulfillment throughput by up to 3X as more organizations feel the pressures of the eCommerce boom and labor shortage. Through this relationship, AHS, an established leader in conventional material handling, is expanding its innovation portfolio to assist companies in streamlining processes, boost staff productivity, and create flexible, scalable solutions.

"Only five percent of companies currently have any level of robotic automation in their warehouses and are at risk of losing market share because they can't keep up with demand—we can help fix that," said James Hendrickson, Director of Strategic Partnerships & Global Alliances at Berkshire Grey. "Partnering with AHS allows us to deliver a comprehensive robotic automation portfolio, accelerate the adoption of AI and robotics and enable warehouse supply chains across industries to scale and grow."

Berkshire Grey's Partner Alliance program collaborates with a select group of strategic partners to offer scalable robotic solutions to customers in the Retail, eCommerce, 3PL, Grocery, and Package Handling industries to increase fulfillment throughput while lowering operational costs. Berkshire Grey solutions include a faster return on investment than other industry providers. Their partner program allows them to collaborate with the top consultants, integrators, technology providers, and material handling experts to offer consumers value-added options.
