Summary of Innovation

Slip Robotics provides a trailer loading and unloading solution (Slip Robot) that can load and unload a semi-trailer or box truck in <5 minutes with no modifications to the dock or trailer. Slip uses a set of AMRs staged with freight to move the freight into the trailer when it arrives. The AMRs then ride with the freight to the destination and can unload all the freight in <5 minutes, as well. Slip Robotics’ loading and unloading robots can handle docks with dock levelers or dock plates and can load a trailer with up to 48,000 lbs of freight. The solution is currently used at many sites across multiple customers. It improves dock and driver efficiency and reduces damage to product and other equipment.

Slip Robotics trailer loading and unloading solution is an instant implementation that requires no IT integration, dock modification, or trailer modification. This frictionless implementation and the ability to use a production-ready AMR solution to quickly load and unload trailers creates an immediate ROI for customers.

Innovation Statement

Slip Robotics provides a unique application of large AMRs (the Slip Robot) that can handle uneven dock and trailer floors with heavy payloads to reduce trailer loading and unloading time. The AMR-based approach allows for more flexibility for customers.


Slip Robotics can reduce the time spent loading and unloading trailers by up to 96%, which can have an outsized impact on the overall cost and performance of supply chain operations.
