“Seegrid robotic trucks can be productive on the first day of implementation and brought up to full capacity very quickly,” Jones added. “As a proven and advanced form of technology, Seegrid robotic trucks are also the kind of innovative solutions our clients have come to expect from us. We look forward to implementing this technology to help our customers achieve their business objectives.”
