The team behind Stretch, our autonomous mobile robot for the warehouse, is constantly learning from our customers and deployed robots. We’re continually leveraging those learnings when developing and deploying new capabilities that make the robot unload trailers and shipping containers faster.  

Today we announce a major advancement in unloading speed: Stretch will pick and place multiple boxes— currently up to four at once—with a feature we are calling multipick. Containers are often filled with thousands of boxes, so enabling Stretch to move multiple boxes instead of one with a single swing of the arm results in significantly higher productivity.
