What You Will Learn

There seems to be a consistent cry from retail warehousing, distribution and fulfillment companies at almost every industry conference, lamenting the Amazon effect on labor availability, labor cost and drivers. And after all, it’s hard to compete and grow if you don’t have the staff to receive, pick, pack and deliver the goods! But this problem isn’t just the Amazon effect; this session examines the root cause of these shortages, looks at demographic factors, and long range planning prognosis. Our experts discuss various automated solutions that address this challenge – whether you are interested in leveraging the latest digital technologies, labor management techniques, or automated solutions -- from goods-to-person, shuttles to pocket sorters, robotic picking, Control Towers, and more!
