Four facts about warehouse automation

Costs are reduced

Fully automated systems reduce operational costs while increasing maximum production capacity.

Higher error prevention

The failure rate of warehouse processes at companies with less than 50 percent automation is 48 percent. In contrast, for companies with a higher level of automated processes, the susceptibility to errors is 24 percent.

More sustainable use of resources

With the help of automated systems, warehouses become much more environmentally friendly. For example, stacker cranes help to use space efficiently and warehouse management systems control and optimize all flows of goods, reducing energy consumption.

Accident risks are reduced

Accidents often occur in warehouse operations due to employee distraction, exhaustion or carelessness. Automation increases the accuracy of individual work steps and thus reduces danger points in the operational process.
