    Pregis, a leading global manufacturer of protective and flexible packaging solutions, is partnering with inVia Robotics to improve pick, pack and replenishment labor efficiencies by automating fulfillment operations.

    InVia and Pregis engineers have integrated artificial intelligence-driven software and autonomous mobile robots with packaging systems. Pregis’ advanced automation solutions are typically integrated into end-of-line work cells which the company refers to as the “perimeter around the parcel.” This includes Pregis’ Sharp brand of bagging machines, as well as air-, foam- and paper-based protective packing systems. The objective is to extend automation capabilities throughout the fulfillment process, delivering greater operational efficiencies, increasing order accuracy, and improving pack cycle times.

    David Schuda, vice president of technology, Pregis explained:

    “Pregis prides itself in working collaboratively with fulfillment operations to ensure all aspects of production are as efficient as possible. That means bringing in partners and developing integrated solutions to optimize results. That’s exactly why we partnered with inVia—to improve upstream pick and pack operations, as well as boosting labor efficiencies.” 

    inVia’s fully autonomous robots move goods from pick grids to pack stations and then back for replenishment, optimizing labor. Meanwhile a warehouse management system sends shipping labels to pack stations where Pregis’ end-of-line systems like Sharp baggers significantly increase throughput. The Pregis-inVia automated solution can improve productivity 10X over manual processes, easing companies’ labor challenges, meeting consumer demand, and providing a quick return on investment.

    Lior Elazary, chief executive officer and co-founder of inVia Robotics said:

    "Our goal is to bring efficiency into every step of the fulfillment process in our customers' warehouse in order to enable exponential growth for their business. Strategic partners like Pregis help us integrate additional automation into warehouse operations, ensuring goods, people and equipment are all flowing without interruption."

     

    Fulfillment operators can visit the Aurora, IL, innovation center known as the Pregis IQ, to personally experience a demo of the integrated solution and learn how Pregis and inVia can scale with customers to ensure their fulfillment operations are operating at optimal efficiency.
