As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 20th of December, 2019, Croatian Post (Hrvatska pošta) has introduced autonomous pallet transport robots made by the Croatian company Gideon Brothers to their workforce in their brand new sorting centre, thereby strongly supporting the development of core business as the most important determinant of the Post 2022 Strategy, which links machines, people, products and business systems.
Robotic systems reduce overall service costs, shorten service cycle times and increase the efficiency of energy systems.
Robots do not replace humans in the workforce, but they act as their efficient tool and help them to achieve goals they had never imagined being able to do before their appearance. This principle is also guided by the aforementioned Croatian robotics and artificial intelligence company – Gideon Brothers.
Along with a quality business solution, this principle was Croatian Post’s guiding principle in deciding to launch a pilot project for the use of autonomous pallet transport robots in their new sorting centre.
The pilot project will be implemented over the next four months in Croatian Post’s warehouse and sorting facility, and human workers who will be working alongside the new robots will be trained during this period. Robots in the Croatian Post warehouse will assist with the picking and transportation of goods, while in the sorting room, they will serve to transport shipments from vehicles to the processing and preparation points ready for delivery.
A self-propelled logistics robot can carry as much as 800 kilograms of cargo and safely maneuver around people, equipment and other moving machines. These Croatian robots are equipped with autonomy technology based on visual perception, which combines in-depth learning with stereoscopic cameras to create a new generation of robotic vision.
All this shows that Croatian Post is very open to new opportunities offered by technology which can provide a competitive advantage and thus help the Croatian economy to use and create opportunities that bring new technologies, enabling a full circle of continuous development.
