Supply chain automation accelerates as e-commerce uptick continues

The continued e-commerce uptick is accelerating supply chain stakeholders’ plans to deploy automation. Global technology intelligence firm ABI Research forecasts that there will be close to 14,500 highly automated warehouses globally in 2027, as opposed to 4,400 in 2022. As automation ramps up worldwide, integrating and managing automated technologies at scale is becoming one of manufacturing’s top challenges.

In an upcoming webinar, Leveraging & Managing Automation for Manufacturing Excellence, ABI Research and Ricoh are teaming up to take on the topic of automation scalability.

ABI Research’s Vice President Malik Saadi and Ricoh’s Strategic Alliance Executive Kevin McSheffrey will discuss:

  • Manufacturing industry trends in automation and what they mean for the future
  • The obstacles holding back full automation adoption
  • Key considerations for manufacturers working to integrate and manage new technologies seamlessly
