The success story of intelligent robots in intralogistics
One of the big pieces of good news to come out of this year’s event is the continuing success of intelligent robots in intralogistics, as announced by Dwight Klappich, analyst and logistics expert at Gartner.
In his talk, he points out that the growth of intelligent robots in warehouses, which has been off the charts over the last decade, is not about to stop. According to him, by 2030, 1/3 of medium-sized and large warehouses will have at least one robotised platform. According to him, 96% of companies worldwide use or plan to use robots in their warehouses in the future.
According to Dwight Klappich, 93% of companies using robotic solutions are planning to increase their fleet of robots for a variety of uses:
- Human assistance (carrying heavy loads, etc.)
- Improvements (exoskeletons, etc.)
- Replacement (inventory, picking…)
