What You Will Learn

In today's ever-changing environment, there are many challenges for local fulfillment. Labor, space, efficiency, costs, and speed are all issues that confront providers while they try to meet consumer demands and the dynamics of the market place. Traditional manual based solutions fall far short of meeting the challenges. The explosion in e-commerce growth, combined with labor and space shortages add up to delays and increased costs to get products delivered on time. Consumers will respond with negative reviews and will take their business elsewhere if they do not get the experience and convenience they desire.

To solve this issue, there are a wide range of robotic automation options available from AMRs that direct an operator filling orders to fully automated systems using ASRS technology. It is becoming apparent to the marketplace that there is no “One Size Fits All” solution. Different robotic systems can be used to best apply the right technology at each node or site across your customer network. Choosing the right solution in each location based on demographics, geography, volumes, and operational constraints allows you to best deploy the optimal operational and cost effective set of solutions across your customer base. There are also some very interesting and successful combinations of complimentary robotic solutions that firms are deploying to automate more of the end to end fulfillment process and provide a better solution in individual markets. These solutions can be deployed at the store level, dark stores, hyperlocal sites and even in urban multi-floor spaces. Now, with these advances in local fulfillment automation technologies, we have improved solutions that best meet the consumer requirements at the local level and allow a firm to deploy the best solution in each micro fulfillment location.
