E-commerce is booming, but rapid growth and coronavirus are also revealing growing pains. For example, the availability of distribution and fulfillment centers worldwide is a problem, not to mention the manpower for picking, packing and shipping.
In distribution and fulfillment centers, a package may easily be picked up 10 to 15 times, so plenty of opportunities for automation and robotization. AWL has the experience in-house to deliver modular machines where robotics, vision and gripper technology are key. Our experience with different software systems allows us to communicate with Autonomous Mobile Robots, advanced supply chain software, and track and trace technologies.
Our modular handling solution allows increasingly fast, safe and error-free distribution. The time-to-market becomes shorter and eventually the pressure to supply more cost-effectively will grow.
