Warehouse and distribution facilities exist at the center of e-commerce supply chains, with automation a foundational enabler for driving efficiency. However, changing consumer preferences have created radically different needs for modern warehouse operators. Today, the primary source of competitive advantage amongst warehouses is operational efficiency, minimizing fulfillment costs and maximizing delivery speed.

Part one announces his firm's investment in RHR and focuses on design principles for the next generation of warehouse technologies. Part two focuses on the broader category of warehouse robotics and some of the emerging use cases that are starting to see success.

Back in October, RHR’s Head of Product and Marketing Vince Martinelli contributed an article that was published in Modern Materials Handling (MMH), capturing his thoughts and observations from the first six months of 2020 around the role of piece-picking and its future in the warehouse automation space. In this article, he homes in on five key factors that supply chain leaders need to consider in order to get the most out of piece-picking systems, ranging from workspace design to establishing how the robotic system will communicate with existing warehouse software systems.
