Robots offer solution to peak season labor shortages
Humans have large, agile brains, but are subject to the constraints of the human body. Robots are tireless, but have limited decision-making abilities. Combining the best of their respective skills in intelligent ways creates opportunities for efficiency in warehouse and distribution center operations, and improves working conditions across the board. With a growing labor shortage, a boom in e-commerce and a looming peak season, the commingling of humans and robots represents not only relief, but the future of warehouse labor.
