Phantom Auto Partners with Mitsubishi Logisnext for Unmanned Forklifts
Logisnext Americas group started a partnership with Phantom Auto, a provider of
interoperable remote operation software, to enable operators who are sitting up
to thousands of miles away to remotely operate unmanned tuggers, pallet jacks,
counterbalances and more.
Phantom will be offering forklifts with Phantom's software integrated across
specific types of electric-powered forklifts from Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas'
UniCarriers and Mitsubishi brands. Logistics operators can use Phantom's
interoperable solution to:
Complement autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) by remotely monitoring many vehicles simultaneously and remotely assisting or operating vehicles when the autonomy needs human assistance.
Phantom's vehicle-agnostic software has also been integrated with other leading material handling OEMs, along with manufacturers of trucks, robots, cars, and more. Backed by Bessemer Venture Partners and other leading investors, Phantom is rapidly expanding across the logistics and manufacturing industries and is powering use cases as broad as material handling, yard operations, and last-mile delivery.
"Over the past several years, we've proven repeatedly that remote operation is
transformational for logistics operators. Phantom is helping customers scale
unmanned operations sooner while enabling the next frontier of remote work,"
said Shai Magzimof, Co-Founder and CEO at Phantom Auto. Elliot Katz, Co-Founder
and Chief Business Officer, added, "Our partnership with Mitsubishi Logisnext
Americas is a significant milestone in our mission to unlock greater safety,
productivity, and operational resilience across the supply chain."
