NineSigma, representing JAPAN POST Co., Ltd. (“Client”), seeks a technology for recognizing a wide variety of goods of different sizes and weights loaded on basket dollies and transferring them onto conveyor belts using robots.

The Seeker, Japan Post Co., Ltd., collects goods from customers by truck at the distribution hubs and sorts them by delivery location. Although the Client has worked on automating the goods transportation process currently handled by humans to improve work efficiency, they have yet to develop a promising solution.
The Seeker has therefore decided to make this RFP to find an effective automation technology for their transportation work. In the future, they plan to automate the unloading of basket dollies with goods from trucks and transporting them to the robot work area.
