AMR Fleet Management & Warehouse Automation | Fortna

Solutions: Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)

Scalable, Flexible Warehouse AMR Integration & Solutions

Reducing excess walking or travel is the lynchpin to more efficient operations. Mobile robots or AMRs are a flexible and reliable alternative to conventional pick carts, fork trucks, AGVs and conveyor, where high volume of repetitive material movement is required. They are also applicable for picking and replenishment in low density environments and low-volume, high complexity sorting applications.

Fortna works with top AMR manufacturers across a variety of different solution types to design flexible, scalable, and modular operations that meet your business requirements.

    Flexible. Collaborative. Safe. Reliable.

    Today’s mobile robots are available in a wide variety of configurations and can carry heavier payloads with greater flexibility and safety than previous generations of these technologies. Fortna merges innovative design with best-fit mobile technologies for flexible solutions that meet and exceed performance expectations. Fortna robotic solutions increase productivity and efficiency, while lowering overall costs.

    Meet Me, Follow Me, Mobile Rack, and Mobile Sort — AMR technologies have a number of use cases based on eliminating wasted travel, driving higher productivity, and lowering overall fulfillment costs.

    • “Meet Me Robots” travel to meet a worker to perform a specific task like picking or replenishment.
    • “Follow Me Robots” reduce ergonomic and physical strain on workers by transporting goods alongside their human counterpart as they pick or replenish shelves.
    • “Mobile Rack Robots” bring inventory to workstations optimized for the most efficient picking or replenishment.
    • “Mobile Sortation Robots” offer greater flexibility without the need for fixed conveyor and sortation systems.

    Proof of Concept and Business Case Justification

    Complex projects sometimes require a proof of concept (POC) to validate functionality and justify the business case prior to investing significant capital expense for the broader solution. At Fortna, business case is at the heart of everything we do. We will help you develop the business case, align stakeholders, and obtain the Board-level support you need for your investments.

    Fortna helped us choose the right level of technology for our new DC.  They didn’t try to oversell us.
