Customers are turning to e-commerce more than ever. Statistics show that consumers are favouring instant shopping experiences using mobile devices or voice search. It is estimated that purchases made on smartphones are set to increase to 50 per cent by 2020*. In addition to this, 50 per cent of all searches online will be voice searches by 2020*. As a result, online orders are being placed faster than ever before with fulfilment centres constantly needing to battle these increasing pressures.
In addition to instant shopping, consumers are also expecting delivery speeds to match. In recent years, there has been an increase in next day or even same day delivery options. In order to meet these demands and keep up with competitors, it is essential that fulfilment centres automate their pick, pack, sortation and dispatch processes.
There are several key reasons as to why so many companies are turning to automation in order to meet e-commerce demands.
