BOISE, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)--St. Luke's Health System, a prominent not-for-profit healthcare provider based in Idaho, turns to a strategic partnership with Equipment Depot, Inc., America's largest independently operated material handling and equipment rental source, and Hai Robotics, a leading global provider of Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS), to streamline order picking and fulfillment of medical-surgical products in its future Meridian, Idaho, warehouse.

“They’ve presented us with the opportunity to engineer a creative and cutting-edge system that leverages our full suite of robust capabilities and the flexibility we’re known for.

The turnkey goods-to-person solution produced in collaboration between Hai Robotics and EQSOLUTIONS™, Equipment Depot's systems integration division, will maximize space utilization and operational efficiency as St. Luke’s optimizes various distribution networks under one roof.

The HaiPick System will cover 14,000 square feet within St. Luke's facility and operate 28 HaiPick Autonomous Case-handling Mobile Robots (ACRs) that transport inbound and outbound containers within a system of storage racking and conveyor workstations.

The robots transport up to 8 containers at any given time for maximum order batching efficiency and deliver them to ergonomic human-operated workstations equipped with pick-to-light technology. With an intuitive interface and comprehensive check systems integrated into the workstations, the HaiPick System is expected to help St. Luke's achieve an impressive 99.99% order-picking accuracy.

“Our forward-looking supply chain has successfully identified a strategic partner that aligns perfectly with our vision of advanced distribution and consolidated services,” said Jason Merrill, Senior Director at St. Luke's Health System. “Hai excels in delivering top-tier automation products and value-added solutions. Their cutting-edge, adaptable technology met our scalability requirements to meet the ever-growing demands of providing health care products efficiently and safely to patients and caregivers, all while optimizing the cost to deliver care.”

Supported by Equipment Depot’s 85 years of material handling knowledge, Hai’s solution was chosen for its unparalleled ability to optimize storage space — with a vertical reach extending up to 32+ feet — easily adapt to demand fluctuations and rapid growth, and elevate the workplace environment by minimizing touch points and eliminating human travel to fulfill orders.
