Automation: An Effective Labor Strategy in Cold Chain Warehousing and Distribution
This white paper explores both the partial and the comprehensive application of automation as an effective labor strategy in cold storage applications. It also details the benefits of doing so, including the ability for an operation to achieve higher standards of productivity, dependability, sustainability, accuracy and safety.
With automation, management's focus can be redirected from guiding and overseeing people to ensuring overall systems and processes are running as they should. This ensures greater consistency, higher productivity, increased accuracy, faster throughput and reduced lead times – all of which support a higher degree of customer service and satisfaction.
