Introducing Freespace Robotics...

The Next Generation of Warehouse Automation

No Compromises.

The newest reimagining of space efficient, high-speed, high-volume movement of goods, in nearly any size, shape, and temperature environment. 

While today's market solutions are well-engineered (and some look very cool), they all come with tradeoffs. You can have density or speed, but not both. Need to handle different-sized goods? You'll need two different systems to do that.  

Freespace Robotics' customers don't need to compromise. Our new design was informed by the challenges and gaps in today's solutions, many of them designed and piloted well over a decade ago. Our system solves for challenges that were hard to see, predict, or build to when older designs first came to market over a decade ago. We engineered our systems to be optimized for each industry and sector's unique requirements and goals. Among them are speed and density, inventory flexibility and lower TCO - all in the same system.



Robotic storing, locating, picking, and delivering of items increases inventory accuracy, optimizes sequencing, and reduces operating and labor costs by up to 75%.



Faster than today's leading AS/RS solutions. Our robots can handle more than one tote at a time and can multi-task; storing and retrieving in the same trip.

Cost Efficiency

Cost Efficiency

The lowest ‘cost per order’ and ‘total cost of ownership’ of any leading AS/RS. Additional flexibility and savings without dependence on high-cost/hard-to-source lithium batteries.



Can be installed in every location our competitors can and most they can’t. No special accommodations to the facility are required. The system works with uneven floors, columns, and exit doors.



Totes or trays of multiple widths, lengths and depths can move weights up to 100 pounds each for piece picking and case picking - in the same system. Mount on ceilings. Adapt to trucks.



Our system was designed with easily sourced parts and a simple assembly so it can be serviced by a technician, not a robotics engineer. A wrench and screwdriver are just about all that’s needed for maintenance and repair.



Fitting over 2x the inventory of the leading dense cube solutions in the same footprint delivers a higher revenue per sqft and allows for improved space utilization.

Our Design Principles make this system like no other

Versatility Advantage

  • Robots move, store or retrieve more than one tote at a time
  • Robots and components are outside the structure
  • Additional robots do not create additional congestion
  • Items can be stored and retrieved in a single trip

Operational Advantage

  • Cube is accessible from more than one side
  • Good move without lifting or fighting gravity
  • Spills or jams create minimal, if any, disruption or stoppage
  • Simple parts, simple movement, simple power, simple repair
    • Robots and components are outside the structure
    • No dependency on battery power

Custom Applications

Because of our unique design, the Freespace Robotics system has a number of yet unseen applications. Not only can we deploy in a truck trailer, delivery van or cargo container, we can suspend the system from ceilings, turning retail locations and grocery stores into micro-fulfillment centers. 

'EcoShuffle' Storing & Retrieving

The core of our breakthroughs in speed, flexibility, reliability and cost efficiencies is how the system moves goods. Our robotic carrier pairs, approach two rows simultaneously and shuffle goods in the most efficient manner – depending on the fastest path to retrieve goods. 

Fit Your Warehouse

Not all warehouses are shiny new buildings with perfect floors and out of the way walls and columns. We designed our system to accommodate the quirks of brownfield sites so that automation and 'goods to person' are accessible without a 7-figure renovation or 8-figure facility build. Our system, because of its structural design principles, can go around corners or columns, uneven roof lines and ductwork as well as adjust pitch and level for uneven flooring.

Fit Your Products

One of the challenges retailers, suppliers and distributors have trying to automate operations, is that the goods they carry come in such a broad range of sizes. Freespace Robotics system is the only solution that can automate piece-pick and case-pick in the same system. Each layer of our AS/RS can be a different height, hold a tray or tote, and do so in vastly different dimensions. We don’t ask our customers to adapt their needs to the specs of our robots, we shape our carrier robots to meet the inventory automation needs of our customers.

Scale As You Need

With the flexibility Freespace Robotics offers in terms of size and weight of goods handled, and the open-ended structural options, we’ve attracted leaders in retail, defense logistics, wholesale food distributors and grocery, as well as parts suppliers and manufacturers to our solution. With no height limitations and the ability to extend an installed system later, Freespace Robotics offers a solution that will have a longer lifecycle of high performance than others.

Online retail sales are expected to double to $7.5 Trillion by 2026.

Juniper Research

28,000 warehouses are to be added globally to meet the ecommerce boom.

Interact Analytics

Only 1-2% of warehouses in the US are fully automated.

L.E.K. Consulting

80% of warehouses still manually operate with no supporting automation, despite the advantages.


By 2025, 45% of all manufacturing will be performed by robotic technology.
