Corporate logistics and supply chain groups have adopted a wide range of automation technologies to improve the operational efficacy and efficiency in warehouses and distribution centers, including robotics systems. Robotics technologies are being employed in warehouses and distribution centers at an ever-increasing rate to automate costly, dangerous and time-consuming activities. Moreover, the newer classes of robotic solutions provide companies with a high degree of flexibility, a capability lacking in many earlier forms of warehouse and distribution center automation. This comes at a time when flexibility is viewed by corporate management as a key strategic differentiator and business facilitator.
In this informative webinar, being held Wednesday, Dec 15, 2021 (11 AM PT), examples of how robotic automation is being applied within warehouses and distribution centers will be shared. During the session, robotics solution providers and integrators will be highlighted. Specific use cases will be discussed. ROI and other evaluation metrics will be provided where warranted.
Topics covered in this session include:
- Loading / Unloading
- Palletizing / Depalletizing
- Sorting and Staging
- Picking Operations
- Packing / Unpacking
