Robotic Material Handling Applications in DCs - FREE White Paper

July 19, 2013

The idea of robotic solutions isn’t something new. For years, robots have been handling many of the dirty, dangerous, dull or inaccessible tasks in manufacturing plants.

However, with rapid technological advancement breaking down past barriers of entry, robotic solutions are making their way into distribution and fulfillment centers.

The high costs and multiple employee touches in today’s DCs provide prime opportunities for robotic automation. Now, the question is: Have you considered robotic solutions for your facility?

This complimentary white paper summarizes the current and future state of robotics and their migration into DCs, and also looks at both robotic and conventional methods for day-to-day operations, increasing productivity and workflow in the following areas:

  • Receiving
  • Put Away and Replenishment
  • Order Fulfillment
  • Pack Out/Repack
  • Shipping
