Invest in warehouse automation to protect against market volatility

Element Logic, a specialist in intralogistics and automation, detects in its new whitepaper an increase in demand for flexible and modular warehouse solutions to adapt to market fluctuations.

In recent years, companies have intensified their investment in flexible and modular warehouse automation solutions to cope with market volatility. In such a complex global environment, marked by geopolitical and economic uncertainty, these systems help organisations to ensure agile and efficient operations, and to adapt more readily to market fluctuations and changing consumer demands.

This is one of the main conclusions of Element Logic’s recent whitepaper on why artificial intelligence (AI) and automation are the keys to unlocking warehouse potential. The whitepaper, which is available for free at this link, points out that automation has become a protective mechanism to ensure the future of companies in any scenario.

“Investing in warehouse automation is a smart strategy for companies that want to remain competitive in a volatile market context. The pandemic put warehouse operations under significant strain and, as a result, numerous companies have focused their efforts on improving efficiency and reducing reliance on manual processes,” says Antonio Peña, director of Element Logic Spain.

Warehouse automation: key to adding more value to the work of warehouse operators

Element Logic also highlights in the whitepaper the collaboration between humans and robots as a key factor for adding more value to the work of warehouse operators and curbing the high turnover that characterises the intralogistics sector.

Although warehouse automation shows a clear upward trend, it is still at an early stage. According to the whitepaper, this leads to one of the sector’s major challenges being staff retention, especially in manually operated warehouses and in positions where tasks are repetitive and do not offer real opportunities for growth.

“Order preparation is the process that is currently most automated in warehouses. Automating such repetitive tasks is more than an added value; it allows us to free up resources in the warehouse, develop new functions and capabilities, achieve a healthier work environment, and combat labour turnover. At Element Logic, we strongly believe in human-robot collaboration, and for that reason, we work daily to optimise these synergies,” concludes Antonio Peña.
