Robots & Realism: striking a balance in fulfillment operations.
Consumer demands for faster delivery are placing pressure on click-to-ship times for all online retailers. ARC Advisory notes that retailers in the US and Europe are pushing for order lead times between 30 and 90 minutes. This push and the pressure of growing labor costs have led to higher adoption of fulfillment automation technologies. In this panel, we explore the types of warehouse automation technologies on the market, criteria for selecting the right one for your operations, and tradeoffs that need to be considered between speed and scalability when it comes to balancing automated and human labor in the fulfillment center.
