The demand for goods continues to increase alongside a dwindling warehouse labor pool, adding to ongoing delays in the global supply chain. As staffing continues to pose challenges and the availability of automation solutions increases, a shift away from people-optimized facilities to ones optimized for technology is a viable approach to tackling today’s challenges. Warehouses face the need for rapid change while having to deal with a high degree of variation that is difficult to automate. Transitioning to automation requires flexible solutions capable of integrating into human-centric spaces to handle increased volume and perform unsafe and repetitive work, leaving staff to focus on more specialized and technology-assisted tasks.
