Geek+ offers a variety of logistics robots, including the new C200M AMR designed to operate in narrow aisles, reach high shelves, and increase warehouse storage capacity. According to the company, the C200M can operate in aisles that are 3 feet wide. It can use a 3.2-foot-long telescopic fork to reach two rows of containers from one side of a shelf. The robot can also store cargo in a range from 0.215 m (8.4 in.) up to 5 m (16.4 ft.). Its door frame is modular and can be customized according to customer needs. In addition, the modular design allows for on-site assembly, making transportation and loading easier.
Founded in 2015, Beijin-based Geek+ said it has completed more than 200 projects and deployed more than 10,000 robots across four continents. It raised $150 million in Series C1 funding in July 2019 and opened a San Diego office in February 2020.
