Freight Waves: Seegrid introduces upgraded autonomous tow tractor to make companies economically viable

Seegrid Introduces Upgraded Autonomous Tow Tractor

June 9, 2021  |  Pittsburgh, PA

Seegrid Corp., an autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) development company, introduced Tuesday its Palion Tow Tractor Series 8, an upgraded version of its automated tow tractor to help customers increase productivity and safety within manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution.

The company, which closed a $52 million growth equity investment in September, has been focused on expanding its suite of AMRs this past year, including the premiere of its first autonomous lift truck, Palion Lift AMR, and the recent upgrade of its Palion Pallet Truck.  

In an interview with FreightWaves, Jeff Christensen, the vice president of product at Seegrid, explained the importance of AMR technology to the modern-day business and how its Palion series of AMRs is empowering customers.

"I fundamentally believe in the societal benefits of technology and when technology is thoughtfully applied, [it] makes society better,” Christensen said. “I see those same benefits from automation within material handling. [Automation] certainly makes the workplace safer but it also makes companies more economically viable, which I think is good at a societal level. We want companies to be economically strong and in order to do that, they have to have operations that run well so they can be efficient and profitable and all of those good things. Part of that process is to put resources like AMRs in the places where we can get the most leverage from them."

Seegrid’s newest Tow Tractor helps in a specific niche of manufacturing and warehousing, with its ability to carry up to 10,000 pounds while being able to understand an extended frame of view to better comprehend its surroundings. 

Christensen explained how these capabilities, particularly the automation of moving heavier goods, is a product that customers rely on for safety standards.
