Healthcare Distribution Looks to Automation to Mitigate Risks Exposed by Global Pandemic
The pandemic exposed serious vulnerabilities in the healthcare supply chain resulting from changes that have been brewing for years.
Flexible, Future-Ready AutomationThe solution in most cases will be to shift from time-consuming person-to-goods picking to more efficient goods-to-person picking enabled by automation. The AutoStore and CarryPick goods-to-person automation systems both deliver the combination of speed, inventory density, worker protection and order fulfillment accuracy healthcare distribution requires.
Unlike the rigid mechanized automation systems of the past, flexible, data-driven and robotic automation systems such as AutoStore and CarryPick provide the flexibility and scalability to meet changing demand while continuing to compress order cycle and delivery times. They deliver an ROI that is typically half that of mechanized automation and reduce the risk of obsolescence by being able to adapt to changes in demand, fulfillment processes and the products being supported.
