C.H. Robinson is a Fortune 500 provider of multimodal transportation services and third-party logistics. The company offers freight transportation, transportation management, brokerage and warehousing. Join us for a quick tour and stay for our presentation: Drones to Automate Inventory Counts.

This talk will cover the business case and technical details around using autonomous aerial drones to perform racked inventory counts for barcodes and RFID. By using drones to count inventory, warehouses can save on operational costs, inventory discrepancy, and operational shutdowns, freeing up working capital and improving space utilization.

Presented by: Jackie Wu, CEO, Corvus Robotics

Key take-away for attendees include: What types of warehouse layouts and processes are suitable for drones; How to evaluate a "real" drone solution from wannabes; and How to get immediate ROI + business case for implementation. 

Corvus Robotics has created the world's first fully autonomous inventory drone solution, with patents and academic publications pending. Corvus Robotics has raised outside investment, with deployments with America's largest auto-makers and international 3PLs.
