What You Will Learn

Today, the warehousing industry is considered one of the sectors with the largest automation potential. As the combination of labor shortages, rapid growth in online sales, unpredictable demand-life cycles, and higher expectations for faster and cheaper deliveries is putting a strain on businesses, it has created the perfect environment for robot adoption in warehouses. With an increasingly unpredictable market making it difficult to adjust logistics operations built on fixed infrastructure, business leaders all over the world have started to consider the benefits of robotics and AI and the ability of new technologies to bring flexibility to the supply chain.

With AI-driven robotics solutions many of the time-consuming and redundant tasks of warehouse employees, like walking to find goods, can be reduced by letting sorting staff stay at workstations while robots bring the goods to them. Controlled by the Robot Management System (RMS) that uses intelligent scheduling and task distribution, robots can flexibly move to and from the shelves of ordered goods autonomously, streamlining operations. With no need for fixed guidance systems on warehouse floors (other than simple QR code stickers), implementation is easy with robots and shelving racks deliverable to almost any location at short notice. Flexibility also implies scalability, to meet fluctuating demand, businesses can easily adjust the number of workstations, robots, and working hours to meet peak periods, avoid disruptions, and secure business continuation. Lastly, AI-driven robots are a good investment as it allows businesses to scale operations in line with business growth and avoid slow ROI.

In light of COVID-19, the notion of resilience in terms of flexibility has proved more relevant than ever as it has become vital for keeping businesses going throughout the pandemic. AI robotics is not only a safe option to ensure social distancing and employee safety but allow business continuity despite labor shortages.
