Enabling Intelligent & Future-Ready Automation & Robotics in Logistics – Series #1
Automation, Robotics, AMR. Digital Transformation, Digital Supply Chain, Automated Warehouse
Automation in the logistics and fulfilment chain is a fast growing market. It has been on a growth path ever since Amazon acquired Kiva Systems for a quarter billion dollars in 2012, thereby leaving a gap on the market. Today, a number of alternatives have emerged, such as GeekPlus and HIK Vision. One research has shown the market for mobile robots, drones, and autonomous mobile robots (AMR) in logistics and warehousing is likely to reach just over $80 billion in 2030.
This Seminar by Geek+, a global AMR leader named as one of Fast Company’s most innovative companies in the robotics category for 2021, provides insights to how automated robots are deployed in goods-to-person automation within fulfilment centres, with the purpose of improving productivity and agility in fulfilment centres.
