The opportunities to integrate autonomous drone logistics exist at every stage of the supply chain, where improved efficiencies, lower costs, safer work environments, and higher productivity levels are just a few of the returns that organizations are seeing from their logistics drone investments.
For companies that aren’t already using autonomous robots, launching a strategy can be intimidating. It sounds expensive, for starters, and the idea of putting robots on an assembly line, in a warehouse, out on a dock, or in the yard can be downright daunting. Last month, our CEO, Matt Yearling, wrote a blog post titled “How to buy your first autonomous robot” offering the readers a high-level approach to robotics procurement.
Many companies have already worked through these challenges and are now reaping the rewards of their efforts and investments. In “7 reasons you should be using autonomous robots in your warehouse“, we listed the main reasons why your company needs to start integrating autonomous robots into its supply chain.
In this post, we would like to provide you with five examples of how robots and logistics drone workers can work to streamline the supply chain and make it more efficient according to Delloitte’s new report, “Using autonomous robots to drive supply chain innovation“
Deloitte sums up the use case for drone logistics succinctly. “The time for companies to assess their supply chains for piloting autonomous robots is now. Depending on needs and existing capabilities within the supply chain, implementing autonomous robots—from robotic process automation to self-guiding vehicles with artificial intelligence—can provide significant improvements in productivity and efficiency, while reducing labor costs and improving customer satisfaction.”
