Exotec Robots Save Warehouse Workers 18 Million Miles of Walking

by Carolyn Mathas

While some of us cheer over our FitBit results, Exotec announced that its warehouse robots have covered 17,889,901 miles (28,791,005 kilometers). The Skypod robots logged over 3.1 million miles (5 million kilometers) at the longest drive site, with an average of 1.1 million miles (1.75 million kilometers) across Exotec’s ten busiest sites.

Exotec Skypod systems globally have reached a cumulative 425,000 hours of usage time with more than 99% uptime. This equals nearly 18,000 days or 50 years spread across 15 countries worldwide. The majority of Exotec sites are in the United States and Japan.

Skypod robots have completed almost 230 million cycles globally. One cycle is a robot retrieving a bin, bringing it to a picking station, and returning the bin to storage. A single cycle can account for as many as four orders.
