Online Purchases Port

Nov. 8, 2022
The PickUpPort is a public-facing port that lets customers shop online and pick up their order directly from the AutoStore System.

The PickUpPort is a public-facing port that lets customers shop online and pick up their order directly from the AutoStore System. With the first-ever public-facing technology from AutoStore, shoppers can pick up their online purchases quickly with the help of robots.

The PickUpPort is an intuitive technology that doesn’t demand extensive implementation and training. When a customer places an order and chooses in-store pickup, a Controller function asks the AutoStore Robot to pick the Bins that contain the products. The warehouse operator consolidates the order, and the order is stored in the AutoStore System. When the customer arrives at the store, a Robot will bring the Bin with the right products to the PickUpPort.

The new technology is a direct response to the evolving demand for greater efficiency in the way customers receive products. Adding public-facing ports to stores can drive additional in-store purchases and enable retailers to provide a frictionless omnichannel shopping experience for customers.

The technology has a user-friendly design, and the PickUpPort is equipped with a warning label, safety bar, a damper, and stoppers.
