Robotics In Industry: How Will It Impact IT?

In our instant-everything world, customers want orders ASAP and at the lowest cost possible. This is becoming increasingly harder to do as parcel growth is expected to continue rising 17 to 28 percent each year through 2021. To make matters worse, the dwindling warehouse labor force is facing major skill shortages and an aging workforce.

As companies search for solutions to overcome the labor crisis, parcel packaging is one of the fulfillment processes that continually gets overlooked. However, in reality, this step can be the most manual and labor-intensive part of the formula. To stay competitive, companies must investigate parcel packaging solutions that lead to higher overall cost savings and better efficiencies.

The CVP Automated Packaging Solution by ProShip, Inc., is an in-line autopacker that optimizes all steps of package fulfillment. The solution creates a fit-to-size corrugate box by measuring, constructing, taping, weighing and labeling each single or multi-item order every seven seconds. The CVP also only uses one operator and reduces or eliminates void fill materials to save on labor and material costs.
