The convenience of online shopping in the MENA region has led to a surge in demand for quick and reliable deliveries, putting pressure on warehouses to streamline their operations. Forward-thinking companies are turning to warehouse automation technology to optimize their processes and improve efficiency to keep up. Recent reports suggest that by 2025, autonomous robots will process up to 50% of all e-commerce orders, while the average order fulfilment time is projected to decrease from 4 hours to just 30 minutes by 2028.
In addition, the UAE is taking major strides towards becoming a global leader in the robotics and automation industry, aiming to increase the sector’s contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP) to 9%. The benefits of automation are clear, and the investment and effort required to implement these systems are worth it for their increased efficiency and customer satisfaction.
