Economic trends are the greatest indicators on what you need to do in your operation now to better serve your customers tomorrow. As we experience labour shortages combined with the increasing demand for varying fulfillment options and high speed delivery, automating processes has never been a more critical consideration for any logistics and supply chain operation. AMRs are attractive in the material handling space as they are a cost effective way to move materials quickly through a facility, are easy to implement and can adapt to floor space and the people around them. This year ABI Research predicted that the global AMR market will grow from $800 million USD in 2020 to $49 billion USD by 2030. Join this session to learn how AMRs are driving results for businesses adapting to the influx of change that has and will continue to occur as we move through disaster recovery to the new normal.
