According to a recent report by DHL, an international delivery service, the majority of warehouses around the globe are still not automated, despite the fact that having modern warehouse operations will be ‘a critical factor for the success of any supply chain-centric business such as eCommerce and retail.’
80% of warehouses are still manually operated with no supporting automation, mechanized warehouses account for only 15% of total warehouses, while only 5% of total current warehouses are automated. In the report, DHL’s experts also note that there are ‘no off-the-shelf solutions in warehouse automation – each system is customized to the individual customer’s business needs.’
