The changing requirements arising from a market heavily influenced by online commerce also increase the requirements for a company’s intralogistics. This can only be addressed through efficient processes and a specifically tailored degree of automation. Automating warehouse systems is an important step toward enabling companies to increase the efficiency of their internal material flows and adapt to the demands of the modern market situation. Picking represents one of the most cost-intensive areas of intralogistics. Fully or partially automated solutions can significantly improve and accelerate these procedures. This ultimately results in more efficient company processes, increasing productivity, lower costs along with shorter delivery times. Whether small or mid-sized companies or multinational corporations: these are critical factors for maintaining and strengthening the company’s competitiveness in the age of e-commerce.
