New White Paper on Intralogistics Automation
In April 2021, Guidance commissioned research to understand the importance of intralogistics automation, including the role of Autonomous Mobile Robot Technologies (AMRs) within companies in the U.K. with warehousing, fulfilment, production, or distribution operations. The research assessed the current level of awareness and confidence in technology, including AMRs, the need for automation and plans for adoption, as well as the impact of automation on employees.
Please read the results in our new white paper, COVID-19 Fast-Tracks Intralogistics Automation.
