Benefits of Automated Warehouse Robotics
As technology continues to develop, automated warehouse robots continue to perform a greater share of the labor required for modern fulfillment. Robotics take the rote, repeatable, and menial tasks away from your human labor force while increasing productivity and lowering operational costs. By implementing robotics, you add value to the work performed by traditional labor.
Benefits of introducing warehouse robotics include:
- Increased fulfillment rates
- Improved order accuracy
- Fewer damaged products
- More productive labor
- Increased customer satisfaction
- Lower operational costs
- Safer warehouse environment
The fundamental difference between an autonomous mobile robot and an automated guided vehicle is in relation to how they travel through a facility. An AGV moves along a pre-determined path with the help of a wire or a series of magnets, where an AMR is autonomously navigating through a facility with the help of programmable software.
