Logistics robots automate storage and movement processes as products pass through the supply chain. It is often used in warehouses and storage facilities to organize and transport products, a process called internal logistics, but can be used in other environments as well.

One of the steadily advancing but less talked about trends is the application of robotics and artificial intelligence to logistics and transportation. The business change this application brings is significant, with positive consequences for some and negative consequences for others.

As applied to industrial distribution, robotics refers to the use of robots and machines with smart systems to automate tasks such as sorting, transportation, shipping and retrieval of goods from warehouses.

It’s the easiest robot to find an arm that can pick up products, close and seal boxes, and move packages from one shelf to another.

This type of machine is by far the most used and is not difficult to find at many companies, especially in the automotive industry. What sets these robots apart from conventional machines is that they can handle more complex tasks, apply analytics at the same time, and support operators performing repetitive tasks such as order management or pallet sorting.
