Increased customer demand and booming e-Commerce make business owners introduce warehouse automation. It helps to strengthen labor management and gain more customers satisfaction.
Data-driven and automated warehouse processes contribute to an overall supply chain efficiency nowadays due to the cost reduction for the company and meeting the needs of the customers.
In accordance with G2.com, business software, and services reviews platform, 2022 will start with 620 000 robots and AGV’s shipped worldwide in comparison with only 40 000 in 2016, and with more than 40% of companies ready to invest in shuttle systems for warehouse automation. “One-day deliver” standard launched by Amazon is no longer an outstanding performance, but a “must-have”.
Jeff Sierra, a Senior Coaching Advisor in “Mind Fuel”, said in the “Eight Experts Thoughts About Warehouse Automation”: “The misconception about technology’s role is presented nowadays in many businesses. They think warehouse automation is to do all the processes and all the thinking. One needs to understand the nature of automation and develop well-defined surrounding processes to maximize ROI”.
