Like you, everyone who works in the logistics and supply chain industry is big on saving space, time, and labor. Ideally, you’d love to pick 4,200 items in an hour while eliminating 60% of the work and only using 10% of the floor space, but you can’t, especially if you’re using a manual sorting system. However, that’s about to change because you’ll soon be automating your industry workflow.
The sortation systems market could grow to $2.94 billion by 2026 because more industry players see technological integration as the best way to push their products. Processes such as IoT (Internet of Things) and Industry 4.0 are the future, and going down that road with your sorting systems will be one of the best decisions you’d ever have to make.
The Good that Automated Sortation Systems Bring to the Warehouse
Automated sorting helps you process thousands of items accurately each hour and organize products of similar sizes together. So, you’ll do more work in less time using minimal space. You already like the sound of that, don’t you?
Additionally, it makes shipping swift: each carton or parcel moves to the correct destination because of the robust algorithms behind all the processes. That makes the systems error-proof, and you’ll soon be saying bye-bye to errors like wrongly-shipped parcels and misplaced cartons.
Finally, auto systems decrease labor cost, time, and overhead charges, which allows you to take on more loads.
