With many online and offline channels of sales available, and various services offered like same-day-delivery or store pick-up, customer preferences have evolved. This has forced companies to improve efficiency and reduce the order-to-delivery time. The sheer volume and mix of orders mean that warehouses across the world are under increasing pressure to deliver in the shortest possible time. Traditional rigid warehouse automation fail to deliver and flexible automation is the only viable solution for warehouses to gain a competitive advantage. The autonomous mobile robots from Grey Orange is an excellent example of goods-to-person automation.
