The Robots are Coming: Robotic Material Handling Applications in Distribution and Fulfillment Centers

Screenshot

This paper, written by Chris Arnold, Matt Wicks, and Earl Wohlrab of Intelligrated, discusses how robotic solutions, used for decades in manufacturing plants, are moving downstream into today's distribution centers. The paper presents specific operations – like Receiving, Put Away, Fulfillment, Packing, and Shipping – that have been (or can be) automated in areas of distribution and fulfillment, and then presents the manual solution - like sorting shipments by hand - alongside the robotic solution - like integrated sorting and labeling by robot.
