Freight is an autonomous mobile base for use in warehouses to transport materials from point A to point B. The robot platforms come in three zippy flavors – 100, 500 and 1500, all of which represent the payload it can handle in kilograms.

A company hackathon resulted in Snackbots that can autonomously deliver snacks anywhere in the Fetch office.
Fetch Robotics was founded in early 2015 by a team of robot experts who had started Unbounded Robotics just two years before. The founders, including Fetch CEO Melonee Wise, all worked at Willow Garage, and Unbounded was a mobile manipulation-focused spin-off of Willow. Fetch was a fresh start that allowed the new company to fully develop their concept for an intelligent, robust, and efficient autonomous mobile robotic system for warehouses and factories. In 2021, Zebra Technologies acquired Fetch for US $305 million.
