Posted by sainath on December 3rd, 2018

Many warehousing companies are increasingly deploying robotic solutions to optimize operations and reduce operational costs. Robots are being used to pick, pack and replace goods and thus reduce manpower and risks in warehouse operations. They are being used to deal with increased consumer demand, labor shortages and significantly reduce operational costs. For example, according to a report by Tractica, a leading artificial intelligence advisory services company, warehouse and logistics robot unit shipments are expected to increase from 40,000 in 2016 to 620,000 by 2021, thus indicating widespread use of robotics in warehouse operations.

According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, warehouse operators are now constructing multi-story warehouses in densely populated cities and expensive land spaces. A multi-story warehouse is a warehouse consisting of more than one floor designed to increase the usable floor space per square foot of land. It results in better land utilization rate and enhances operational efficiency. Multi-story warehouses have been successful in densely populated cities predominantly in Asian countries such as China, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, due to high land and construction costs, small site areas and limited industrial land availability. Multi-story warehouses in Hong Kong average 12 floors. Prologis, the world’s biggest warehouse owner, has also started construction to build the first multi-story warehouse in the USA.
