ZMP Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Taniguchi Hisashi , hereinafter ZMP) has started accepting orders for the boarding option "CarriRo Ride" of the logistic support robot CarriRo from today.

Since CarriRo operates with the joystick on the handle part and can be operated by electric power (drive function) by connecting a boarding board, the operator can be carried and move long distances without walking.

This leads to a reduction in large workloads in places where long distance transportation is necessary, such as at warehouses and factories, as well as at stations, airports, shopping centers, etc. At the same time, by utilizing CarriRo's Karugamo (follow-up) mode, it is possible to carry more than one package at a time, contributing to more efficient transportation and labor saving.

Boarding boards can be purchased as "CarriRo Ride" as an option of CarriRo. With 100 kilometers of passengers on board, you can carry up to 100 kilos of luggage on the carrier at the same time. The boarding option "CarriRo Ride" is scheduled to be priced at 300,000 yen (excluding tax), and will begin shipping from the end of 2018.
