Manual vs. Automated Warehouse Solutions
In order to reduce production and labor costs, companies are using automated solutions such as robots in various operations, from grabbing bins filled with merchandise to stacking these bins onto pallets. Robots help perform tasks and cut down travel time for workers. Because there is no need for aisle space to accommodate large groups of people, shelves are packed more densely.
However, while automation is a viable option for optimizing warehouse processes, it comes with drawbacks. It’s more expensive to scale, increases the cost of electricity, and requires specific technical knowledge to operate. Additionally, there are still some tasks where humans outperform robots – one of which is the ability to efficiently pick individual items of varying sizes and shapes off the shelves.
