Based on insights from CEOs, CTOs, Country Managers, Directors, and academics with expertise in the fields of warehouse management, logistics, and robotics, Hai Robotics will explore answers to the key questions facing the sector:
- How will warehouses be designed in the future?
- Who will work in warehouses in the future?
- How will warehouses be sustainable in the future?
The warehouse of the future will be more tailored and efficient at meeting the needs of customers through the use of agile robotics solutions. Experts predict that scalable automation processes will be implemented across the market to achieve greater capacities, increased storage density and improved putaway rates, particularly as the e-commerce boom continues. Hai Robotics’ customer Booktopia provides a case study of how these solutions can be deployed to meet specific needs in a relatively short space of time.
Among the robotics and warehousing industries, the key challenges identified by our research will be building multi-channel, cross-network software solutions which integrate different processes together into one seamless supply chain, and tackling institutional aversion to new technologies. Robotics companies and warehouse managers can work together to ease the transition to fully automated warehouses, by engaging with workers, investors and new business prospects on the benefits of these systems.
