Robots taking over warehouse jobs

Robots are changing how warehouses operate, impacting jobs and efficiency. At an Ocado warehouse, robots swiftly fetch items for online orders, reducing the need for human workers.

Robots taking- over warehouse jobs

Other companies like Asda and Walmart are also investing in automation. At Ocado, robotic arms now grab products for packing, a challenging task requiring advanced artificial intelligence.

While robots handle 15% of products at Ocado, human workers still manage items like wine bottles. However, Ocado plans to increase robot usage to 70% in a few years.

Despite automation’s growth, warehouses won’t be fully human-free anytime soon. The high cost and need for modern facilities limit full automation to large warehouses. However, companies like AutoStore are offering affordable automation solutions for smaller businesses.

While automation brings efficiency, it’s not without challenges. The transition requires suitable infrastructure and significant investment. Yet, with simplified and affordable technology, smaller businesses can benefit from automation too.
