The warehouse and logistics industry may be a pioneer when it comes to robots and automation, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. 

The industry understands all too well why using robotics and automation is the key to future success. This is due: 

  1. robots doing the hard work. Productivity is dramatically boosted when using robot technologies. And this is achieved with no drop in quality, or effectiveness. And the simple reason for this is that when robots are used, the performance within the warehouse, or logistics centre is greatly improved. Volume and throughout of work is significantly increased; 

  2. robots improving conditions. Better working conditions for the employees, as they are freed from dull and monotonous tasks, and do less heavy physical work. And this means less accidents which has beneficial implications for a company’s health and safety;

  3. robots getting it right. Far fewer errors is another major consideration. Robots are accurate, can maintain a consistent pace throughout a 24-hour period, can be programmed to happily work alongside humans in the warehouse environment and do not misunderstand instructions;  

  4. robots reducing costs. Staff costs can be reduced when robots are used. This mainly because robot labour is consistent. Robots do not require holidays, flexi-hours, or sick leave. Nor can they just leave, a problem for many warehouses with staff who do not see their job as a permanent position;

  5. robots filing in. Increasingly, non-skilled and skilled labour is in short supply, made worse by Brexit and Covid-19, and robots are ready to fill the gaps, right now.

Take a look at what robots and automation has to offer you right now. This is not a question of tomorrow, but today, this very minute. 

Robots and automation will revolutionize your business by removing the dull work and letting you and your team to focus on the business itself.  

The warehouse and logistics industry is changing and changing fast, don’t get left behind.
