The world of logistics is undergoing significant transformation thanks to new technology. For example, as e-commerce continues to grow, the work involved in selecting items from inventory and preparing orders has become more of a burden on workers. Fortunately, the introduction of robots equipped with artificial intelligence is reducing this burden and making the shipping process vastly more efficient. The greatest challenge in logistics is typically the sorting of goods with different shapes, arrangement, and weight, etc. Yet the development of new artificial intelligence has made it possible for robots to understand the position and shape of products instantly and efficiently perform this sorting work. From order to delivery, we'll look at how the automation of various logistics operations is accelerating and the latest developments towards full automation.
