Today’s warehouses face numerous challenges as customer preferences evolve and talent remains scarce, but automation is helping to close those gaps.
Warehouse automation is driving efficiency throughout the supply chain by helping the food and beverage and other industries meet the ever-changing challenges presented by today’s fast-paced consumer-centric global economy. As companies strive to deliver products faster and more accurately, they are turning to automation at each stage in the warehouse process. Automation is a clear sign that it’s not your father’s warehouse anymore.
Autonomous mobile robots (AMR), automated guided vehicles (AGV), automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), and conveyor systems are transforming warehouses, and it’s expected that the trend in warehouse automation will grow in the years ahead.
