HAI ROBOTICS Supports UK Cross-Border Warehouse E-Commerce Fulfillment

HAI ROBOTICS, a global leader in autonomous case handling robot (ACR) systems for warehouse logistics, is the first in the UK by cross-border warehouse operator WINIT in China as the delivery of holiday shopping parcels is imminent. Announced that the project was successful. door.

The project will provide a 10,000-square-meter warehouse in Tamworth, Staffordshire, with 120,000 storage areas with shelving heights of 4.3 meters. By deploying 100 HAIPIC KA42 robots and 16 on-conveyor picking workstations in the warehouse, the processing efficiency of up to 50,000 pieces per day can be improved by 3 to 4 times that of manual work.

Warehouse owner WINIT is a Shanghai-based provider of comprehensive solutions for cross-border e-commerce and overseas warehouse storage and distribution in Australia, the United States, and several European countries. We operate the service. When the project started, warehouse throughput skyrocketed, driven by the online shopping boom since the blockade of Covid-19, to cross-border warehouse storage and logistics surge order processing demands from merchants around the world. It corresponded comfortably.

In recent years, cross-border e-commerce has become popular, and the demand for global warehouse services has increased dramatically. According to custom statistics, China’s cross-border trade volume in 2020 is estimated to be RMB1.69 trillion, up 31.1% year-on-year, to reach RMB16 trillion in 2021. By 2020, the number of overseas warehouses owned exceeded 1,800 and the total area exceeded 12 million square meters, according to Chinese operators.

However, cross-border warehouse operators often face some problems that are difficult to crack.

In the first place, the major problems that have plagued warehouse owners operating overseas are labor shortages and rising employment costs for local workers. They also found that maintaining a stable workforce in warehouses, often near commercial hubs in developed countries, is a headache, even with above-average wages. Warehouse automation is an urgent issue.

The second challenge is the huge number of SKUs owned by different sellers, ranging from appliances to baby toys. This fact raised concerns about storage density and picking efficiency. Providing warehouses with robots that can handle complex order processing tasks can be a rewarding decision to meet the growing consumer demand for short parcel delivery times.

Last but not least, a flexible warehouse solution that can be deployed quickly is very important for cross-border warehouse owners who can’t wait long for a growing business.

Unable to find a shortcut to address these concerns, WINIT found that the HAI ROBOTICS solution was suitable for the needs of high storage density, product handling accuracy, operational efficiency, and flexibility.

With the HAIPIC KA42 robot, which can pick and sort with eight loads in one move, one worker can process 450 items per hour. This is 3-4 times faster than manual work. The solution also maximized the space as high as 0.25m to 6.5m, increasing the storage density by 130%. The HAIPICK system, which supports intelligent tote identification and label reading, boasts 99.99% picking and sorting accuracy.

Kane Luo, Vice President of Sales at HAIROBOTICS, said a customized plan for the project was created to improve performance, including improved storage density and innovative workflows that facilitate the required manual work. .. “We were primarily obliged to provide the ACR system. However, we considered the entire process from inbound to outbound product packaging. The workstation was also ergonomically redesigned according to international standards. “He said.


HAI ROBOTICS, a pioneer of Autonomous Case-handling Robotics (ACR) systems, is committed to providing efficient, intelligent, flexible and customized warehouse automation solutions through robotics technology and AI algorithms. We aim to create value for each factory and distribution warehouse.

The HAIPIC KACR system, which was originally developed in 2015, is the world’s first system.
