David Williams, U.S. Continental’s CEO, said, “Our facility spans multiple buildings, which is why we needed a solution that would enable us to autonomously move pallets across our campus. Cyngn’s autonomous stockchaser works both indoors and outdoors, making it an excellent fit for our needs. According to our research, there were very few solutions that could work in both environments, so when we found Cyngn, we knew we were onto something.”
Lior Tal, Cyngn’s CEO, said, “We are excited about the opportunity to help U.S. Continental overcome current supply chain challenges, increase productivity, and reduce operating costs through the implementation of our Enterprise Autonomy Suite. This is a critical time for manufacturers to stay competitive through the utilization of industrial automation to adapt to a changing business landscape. We are pleased to have secured another revenue-generating win.”
“Cyngn’s AI-enabled autonomous vehicle technology offers a variety of benefits, including ease of use, rapid deployment, and industry-leading towing capacity — all bundled with Cyngn Insight, our intelligent fleet management software.”
The global leather chemicals market size was valued at USD 7.4 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 6.6% from 2022 to 20301. The adoption of warehouse automation will allow U.S. Continental to meet growing demand and address supply chain issues and labor shortages.
