The US Department of Commerce reports that e-commerce accounted for 14.5% of retail sales in the fourth quarter of 2021, with online transactions totaling $870.8 billion. E-commerce logistics in the US account for 6.9% of total logistics costs, causing major retailers to invest in logistics and warehouse service robots.
Advanced Warehouse Robotic Automation (AWRA) is in high demand in retail distribution centers and warehouses due to factors like post-pandemic compulsive buying syndrome, which has prompted companies to implement aggressive delivery programs every day, and the “Great Resignation” which has heightened the demand.
Some of the technical factors fueling demand are as follows:
- Increasing emphasis on automation and security
- Cost-effective methods for computer vision and AI to improve robot cognition
- LiDAR, and RADAR sensors have increased the range of jobs that robots can perform.
The rising Warehouse CAPEX costs are putting pressure on OPEX optimization as well.
AWRA have improvised item handling, picking, sorting, and decanting, which account for approximately 75% of retail warehouse activities. For AWRA to succeed, cost-effective personal service robots, durable hardware and IPCs, and efficient software are required.
With a simplified three-step ladder study, we engage customers at various levels of automation maturity.

New Product Introduction (NPI)
Companies must develop the right product at the right time and at the correct price in today's highly competitive industry. Creating and adhering to a strong New Product Introduction (NPI) procedure might denote the difference between success and failure. The process of turning a concept into a fully realized product is known as new product introduction (NPI). Some of the many benefits of NPI include lower development costs, faster time to market, and more efficient manufacturing, among others. Strong project management abilities, design perfection, and manufacturing process excellence all help the NPI process.
