Vecna Robotics’ autonomous, or driverless tuggers are being used by FedEx Ground to transport bulky packages through hub facilities. The Vecna tuggers know the shape of the building and are packed with sensors as demonstrated in the video. To view the video, go to:

Large e-commerce deliveries (trampolines, exercise equipment, canoes, etc) represent the fastest growing portion of FedEx Ground package volume, currently about 10 percent of total volume. Using Vecna automated tuggers for repetitive, simple tasks allows team members to focus on high-value, skilled work.

The RT4500 autonomous tugger is built to maximize productivity by automating point-to-point transport of large payloads with flatbed carts or a train of carts. Designed to be operated manually or fully autonomously with the flick of a switch, the RT4500 is suited for applications such as lineside replenishment and horizontal transport of racks, bins, pallets and oversized and/or non-conveyable payloads.

Vecna Robotics also provides a leasing option including both materials handling equipment and revolutionary disruptive IIoT monitoring. The leasing program ensures a rapid ROI and an affordable way, beyond already competitive pricing, to automate manufacturing, warehouses, and distribution centers.
