Over the years, the technology of robotics in the warehouse has evolved from something that’s nice to have to an absolute necessity.
Robots have been a feature of warehouses and distribution centers for many years.

Today, robots encompass virtually every aspect of warehouse operations, making it possible for retailers and distributors to meet the relentless demands of consumers for rapid turnaround of orders.

But McLean’s message to warehouses today is clear: “Automate or die.”
