Logistics robots raise investment

14 Apr '20
Ronavi Robotics, a domestic logistics robots maker, raised funding from two Russian investors last month. For the Russian start-up, this is its first investment round outside of its parent TechnoSpark Group, announced Rusnano, Russia’s nanotech giant, of which TechnoSpark is an integral part.

How much has been invested and who exactly backed the robotics company has yet to be specified.

Ronavi Robotics develops and manufactures logistics robots to move goods at warehouses. The Russian robots help reduce the number of employees there, including those at e-commerce storage facilities. An employee doesn’t have to run between storage racks to put together items ordered; he simply stands still and takes the items from the racks a robot hauls to him. Similar technology has already been tested at Amazon and AliExpress facilities.

“If all Russian storage areas had already been robotized, online stores and logistic distribution centers would now run the much lower risk of a shutdown [given the current COVID-19 pandemic—editor’s note]. That is why, despite the worsening economic meltdown, Ronavi Robotics has managed to raise new investment to step up production,” TechnoSpark Group CEO Denis Kovalevich said.
