Amid a global labor shortage, GreyOrange is serving as an industry consultant, helping company leaders deploy fulfillment solutions within 12 weeks after learning about their spcific business and robotic needs, as well as how ISRs can streamline their entire fulfillment process. As referenced in the report, GreyOrange solutions that are bridging the labor shortage gap by shortening the warehouse coverage areas and minimizing bodily strain include goods-to-person picking, zone transport and sortation, vertical height utilization, person-to-goods coworking bots, heavy payload transport and robotic picking arms.
“It’s important for supply chain leaders to consult with robotic experts to identify fulfillment solutions that will aid in solving their specific challenges, such as labor shortages, volatile lead times, global supply chain disturbances and rising costs,” said Samay Kohli, co-founder and chief executive officer, GreyOrange. “With much of the labor force not returning to warehouse jobs, industry leaders should closely analyze their specific needs in order to enable humans and robots to work in concert to retain essential personnel, enhance productivity while reducing effort and create career paths for associates.”
According to the Essential Warehouse Workers Briefing Book, most warehouse laborers work 12 hour shifts and walk between 15 and 20 miles per day, therefore demonstrating the need to preserve the human body with robots. With the right software and robots, physically demanding warehouse jobs are reimagined, with the intent to slow increasing warehouse attrition rates.
