Alfonso Gallardo, EMEA Sales Manager for BALYO, a leader in innovative robotic solutions for material handling, was recently interviewed in Logistics Manager magazine. Read the full article here.
Gallardo shared, “Many supply chain, logistics, operations, and manufacturing leaders go home hoping nothing goes wrong in their operations. But things do go wrong when there are people involved. Managing people is difficult – especially when we are making poorly qualified drivers deliver faster and faster.”
Gallardo has designed dozens of intralogistics mobile robot systems, from simple work-in-progress pallet deliveries to fully automated large warehouses. The risks related to managing people dramatically decrease, operating costs drop, and logistics metrics improve when customers turn to robotics and automation.
“Transforming a manual operation might sound risky at the beginning – unfamiliar. But companies that embrace fork-lifted mobile robotics quickly understand that replacing the driver with an automated solution means significantly ‘de-risking’ their operations, making them more efficient, predictable, resilient, and safer,” added Gallardo.
Gallardo recommended for companies to understand how fork-lifted mobile robotics fit in their operations. Gallardo concluded, “We call this the robotics journey. I would advise companies start with an operation that represents 75% of the material handling needs and flows inside their network of warehouses, and build a feasibility study (financial and technical) to understand the use cases for their specific operations.”
