Parcel Giant Testing Truck-Loading Robots

FedEx is collaborating with Dexterity AI to use artificial-intelligence robotic technology to load boxes into trucks and trailers.

By integrating its own trajectory and motion planning, the Dexterity AI platform helps the robot move quickly inside trailers without colliding with each other or the truck walls, the company says.

Dexterity AI focuses on the complexity of truck loading by giving mobile robots a suite of intelligence, with the ability to see, touch, think, and move quickly to pack trailers with stable, dense walls of boxes.

“Based on feedback from our operations team, we have been looking for a solution that helps alleviate the challenges of truck loading,” said Rebecca Yeung, corporate vice president of Operations Science and Advanced Technologies for FedEx, in a news release. “Collaborating with Dexterity AI to combine the latest in AI and robotics supports our operations team while meeting growing customer demand.”

Testing of the truck load technology is ongoing by FedEx to refine the technology and deploy it commercially in the future.

“FedEx shares our belief that innovation should solve the most difficult tasks in operations,” said Samir Menon, founder and CEO of Dexterity AI.
