ATLANTA, May 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Geekplus, the global leader in mobile robot and smart logistics solutions, has picked 5 million totes globally throughout 170 deployments of its two tote-based solutions: RoboShuttle Tote-to-Person and Shelf-to-Person PopPick.

These tote-based order fulfillment solutions make up part of the company’s comprehensive Goods-to-Person offerings. To date, the company has sold more than 40,000 robots worldwide and is the only mobile robotics provider offering a modular suite of goods-to-person robots that can be combined according to customer requirements.

Tote-to-Person combines high-density storage for small- and medium-sized goods with order fulfillment efficiency. PopPick is an upgrade of the flagship Geekplus Shelf-to-Person solution with totes stored on movable racks and picked from an automated tote picking station. Offering heightened throughput, the solution is particularly suited to e-commerce scenarios.
