MOSOLF, a leading technology and logistics service provider in the international automotive industry, started a first test project together with Stanley Robotics. Since the beginning of October, 1000 storage locations for finished vehicles have been managed completely automatically on a 3-hectare site using 4 robots. The goal is to cover the entire site with robots by 2023 to control over 100,000 vehicle movements per year.
Framework agreements on future cooperation laid the foundation for this cooperation. The integration of the robot solution into the operational and IT-systemic processes of the Mosolf Group could then be completed. All the necessary information is exchanged via an interface in order to maintain Mosolfs processes error-free and to integrate the driving movements carried out by robots in the daily business.
The project will demonstrate the performance of the system in managing inbound and outbound vehicle flow, delivery time, responsiveness, real-time inventory management, compound visualization, and time savings for truck drivers.
Stanley Robotics aims to enable an increase in operational performance thanks to its robot and digital twin solution, a guarantee to welcome truck drivers at all times and release them as soon as possible. With this solution, today’s logistics challenges such as capacity bottlenecks and labor shortages can be tackled.
Wolfgang Göbel, CSO of Mosolf SE and ECG President, commented: “The technology partnership with Stanley robotics supports our aim to automatize and decarbonize our core business of vehicle handling and at the same time to overcome the severe Labour shortage in our sector.”
Clément Boussard, CEO of Stanley Robotics, added: “I am very proud to have signed this framework agreement with Mosolf Group, a pioneering logistics company that has anticipated every change in the logistics sector by being innovative. I am very grateful for their commitment, which will allow us to accelerate the robotization of the FVL industry.”
Stanley Robotics is a deep tech company that combines hardware and software to provide solutions for outdoor logistics. The technology lies in a robot lifting and moving cars autonomously and in an intelligent storage management software. Robotics has transformed indoor logistics (e.g. in warehouses), resulting in a spectacular increase of productivity. Stanley Robotics’ ambition is to bring this transformation to outdoor logistics with its proprietary technologies. Founded in 2015, the SME is headquartered in Paris, France, and is also behind the world's first outdoor robotic valet parking service.
