Boston Dynamics negotiated first shipments of its warehouse robots - $15 million deal with DHL
The robots will work in DHL warehouses in North America.
International express delivery company DHL has become the first customer for Stretch robots.
The companies entered into a multi-year agreement - DHL will pay $15 million and Boston Dynamics will supply robots to its warehouses. How many robots will get DHL, the parties did not specify.
The robots will be engaged in moving boxes and unloading trucks. In the future, they will be used for other tasks.
Boston Dynamics began accepting bids for robotic dogs from businesses in September 2019, and it opened sales in June 2020. In March 2021, the company introduced a robot loader - it can move up to 800 boxes per hour and works for up to eight hours without recharging.
