On Sept. 26, Redwood City, California-based robotics company Dexterity AI announced a new collaboration with FedEx Corp. to use AI-powered robotic technology to load boxes into trucks and trailers, according to a news release announcing the partnership.

“Truck loading has long been considered one of the most challenging tasks in parcel hubs,” Dexterity AI said in the release. “Manual loading is taxing and previous technology approaches have not been able to handle the complex decision making required to stack the wide range of shipments encountered in FedEx network, which vary in size, shape, weight, and packaging material.”

Dexterity AI said its company focuses on the complexity of truck loading by giving mobile robots a suite of intelligence ranging from the ability to “see, touch, think, and move quickly to pack trailers with stable, dense walls of randomized boxes.”

“Our culture of innovation is driven by a desire to help our team members and customers succeed,” said Rebecca Yeung, Corporate Vice President of Operations Science and Advanced Technologies for FedEx. “Based on feedback from our operations team, we have been looking for a solution that helps alleviate the challenges of truck loading. Collaborating with Dexterity AI to combine the latest in AI and robotics supports our operations team while meeting growing customer demand.”
