Brexit sparks optimism for automation

05 April 2017

Some key players in the automated handling sector – along with the editor of SHD Logistics – gathered recently for AMHSA’s Brexit
Round Table, an opportunity to discuss the current and future impact of the referendum result on the logistics sector.

As reported in this month's SHD Logistics, one of the key messages, which came as a surprise for some, was that: "Predicted labour shortages are strengthening the case for logistics automation as firms seek to make their operations less labour-intensive. High demand and opportunities for further market growth have sparked optimism among automated logistics suppliers.

This demand is being fuelled by the availability of funding and advances in technology that are increasing the scope of automation.

With smaller companies now considering automation, the industry needs to think about adapting its market approach to suit these less sophisticated purchasers."
