Application description of the installation
Micro-warehouses are characterized by fast fulfillment, dense inventory storage, narrow aisles and high picker count. Automation solutions built for large warehouses do not work for Micro-warehouses.

Mowito designed a new piece picking robot for micro-warehouses. Our robots can fulfill a customer order without any human intervention – a 6 item order takes 90 seconds or less. Mowito’s robots pick items under 2 Kilograms in a wide range of shapes and sizes. A single robot can fit in spaces as small as 400 square feet.

Problem definition
Quick commerce is a fast growing market. Quick commerce orders are fulfilled from small warehouses, commonly referred to as micro-warehouses or dark stores.

Fast deliveries translate to super-fast order fulfillment at the warehouse. Fast fulfillment leads to human errors and leaves customers unhappy. Hiring and retaining pickers is a challenge because of the infinite demand for talent in the warehousing sector. In many cases, pickers contribute to over 50% of the payroll.

How were processes optimized/costs saved/increased efficiency with automation?
Zero errors in picking. Reduction in picker count by 80% that translates to 30% savings in operating costs.
