Panel discussion: Automation – The (only) way to higher storage efficiency
If you ask logisticians what the main topics in their field are, probably “eleven out of ten” will answer that automation and robotization are among the most important. This has been true for a long time, but the covid and post-covid events have significantly deepened this trend. Automation and robotization of logistics operations are very complex problems that affect many aspects of logistics life. It starts with the construction readiness of the buildings, continues with the selection of a suitable warehouse model, procurement and installation of the necessary warehouse technology, its commissioning and bringing it to maximum performance. Furthermore, by ensuring effective picking technologies, obtaining qualified personnel and last but not least, it ends with thorough data logistics and analytics.
