GreyOrange Inc., a global leader in automated robotic fulfillment and inventory optimization software, and Hai Robotics, a prominent player in Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS), have strengthened their strategic partnership, bringing significant competitive advantages to their customers. Over a span of more than two years, the collaboration between GreyOrange’s software and Hai Robotics’ hardware has proven instrumental in elevating throughput, storage density, and agility, thereby accelerating customer operations and fostering growth.

Having successfully completed over 10 projects together in just two years, GreyOrange and Hai Robotics have effectively addressed complex fulfillment operations for major retailers, including the largest U.S. retailer, one of the world’s biggest fashion retailers, and various large-scale retailers across the U.S. and Europe.

The synergy between GreyOrange’s fulfillment orchestration platform, GreyMatter™, leveraging Multi-Agent Orchestration (MAO) capabilities, and Hai’s Tote to Person AMRs and GreyOrange’s Rack to Person AMRs on a unified grid has streamlined operations in warehouses and distribution centers worldwide. Hai Robotics’ ASRS, powered by Autonomous Case-handling Mobile Robots (ACR), offers unmatched flexibility and industry-leading storage density for various items within an automated storage system.

Hai’s goods-to-person systems, adaptable to industry-standard racking and containers, can achieve varying heights up to 10 meters and store containers up to 5 totes deep. This adaptability, combined with GreyMatter, results in maximized operational efficiency, increased speed in order fulfillment, and improved order accuracy.

Brian Reinhart, Chief Revenue Officer at Hai Robotics, highlighted the revolutionary impact of the partnership, stating, “What we’ve done together is provide end users with the throughput they need to meet their growing demand, the storage density to make the best use of their warehousing space, as well as the flexibility so that they’re not tied down in this ever-changing environment.”

Akash Gupta, Co-Founder and CEO of GreyOrange, emphasized the customer-centric approach, noting, “This partnership combines our cutting-edge GreyMatter software that orchestrates the largest and most complex robotic installations in the world with the vertical AMRs from Hai Robotics, including a first of its kind five deep storage solution.”

The collaboration has also led to innovations such as simultaneous orchestration of GreyOrange AMRs and Hai Robotics ACRs with GreyMatter, enabling direct picking into on-demand packing boxes and eliminating extra touches in picking operations. Furthermore, the partnership has contributed to a fully integrated Micro-Fulfillment Center (MFC) solution with industry-leading storage density, offering unparalleled efficiency in fulfilling orders in less than an hour.
