Automation, Robotics and the “New” Supply Chain

Thu, Aug 28, 2014 2:00 PM EDT

For today’s warehouses and DCs, automation, by itself, has reached its physical limits of speed, accuracy and adaptability. Automation is wrapped in a bruising logistics struggle all of which is driven by online purchasing and omni-channel commerce. Can “lights out” warehousing save the day?

Manufacturing, warehousing, material handling, supply chain automation — companies far and wide are incorporating robotics solutions into their materials handling processes; gaining substantial increases in efficiency, reduced costs and an edge over the competition.

And it’s happening fast. And it’s happening within an industry that is moving ever faster. Philip Clarke, CEO of Tesco, said at his company’s earnings call on  February 25th that he’s seen nothing like this demand for speed in his over forty years in the business.
