Automation - including the use of autonomous mobile robots (AMR) - can play an important role in businesses of any size and it doesn't have to come with a ridiculous price tag or disruption.
Automation is revolutionizing virtually every industry today, including cold chain warehousing. Warehousing companies can get a valuable edge over their competitors by implementing smart automation strategies.
The project features multi-floor robot collaboration, as well as fully integrated digital operations for the first time, setting a new benchmark in terms of scale and complexity.
An enormous warehouse necessitates mapping of thousands of positions, and for the system to track order numbers and individual products on the pallets while transmitting information wirelessly back to the central control room for collection and monitoring.
As the labor pool continually changes and work environment standards become higher, it is becoming more difficult to attract and retain employees that are willing to perform repeatable, monotonous tasks.
When it comes to warehouse management, there's a lot to consider. Overhead costs, employee efficiency, order fulfillment are just some of the many daily operations involved in warehousing today. However, there are ways to streamline these processes for greater productivity.
Even if you don't have immediate plans to add robotic automation to your order picking process, you can still leverage the benefits with pallet moving robots. These robots improve the workflow at the transport dock - improving the speed to unload and load trucks.
Modern manufacturing requires facilities to maximize efficiency and ensure product quality. However, space limitations can impede these goals. Integrating elevations and line egress solutions will grant your facility the flexibility it needs to succeed.
Downtime is particularly costly in an operation that relies on carefully coordinated logistics, so optimizing charging times and speeds based on operational needs is very advantageous.
To run at peak efficiency 24/7 and support the sophisticated systems of autonomous robots, automated inventory identification, and other emerging technology, warehouse management and IT teams must consider new networking options.

Goldman Sachs Asset Management invests in Exotec robotic systems to improve warehouse working conditions while also optimizing operational efficiency
Warehouse automation isn't brand new, and many units have some degree of automation integrated. The next step, and the key to ultimate efficiency, is to fully automate warehouse logistics.
For companies still without an automation infrastructure in place - and if we're honest, that's likely the majority - it's time to catch up. Robotics help meet supply chain demands and improve employee safety.
