The impact of robotics in the supply chain
Our imagination means we often imagine the biggest of changes and then fail to truly notice them when we arrive. For years, humans have imagined robots and have mostly made them in their own image. We are now arriving at the stage where robots are traversing our streets and making, picking, packing and shipping our goods. However, because these robots are often quietly working in the background, we fail to appreciate the changes we are currently undergoing, so this week we are bringing our robot brethren to the fore and asking what their impact will be?
