Austin Lighthouse Empowers Employees, Doubles Productivity
Austin Lighthouse is a non-profit organization that offers education and training to people who are visually impaired. Through its warehouse and distribution space, the organization provides logistical support to the federal government and offers commercial warehousing services.
Due to the size of its facility, Austin Lighthouse operations can be complex and involve substantial travel time for workers. To combat this and to help its workers become more independent, the organization turned to Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) from Fetch to reduce travel time, improve picking productivity and better manage its rising order volumes.
