With Intrion under its wings, ABB strengthens its position in the logistics market. This market is becoming increasingly complex due to the rise of e-commerce and mass customization. “Our customers are handling a wider variety of packages with ever-increasing delivery expectations,” Sami Atiya, president of ABB’s robotic and motion division explains.
“In the past, adding more people was the only way to tackle this. But that’s expensive, inefficient and challenging, as there are fewer people willing to do repetitive and often strenuous jobs. Robotics automation solutions add flexibility to offset unexpected peaks while also offering workers the opportunity for more rewarding roles with better ergonomics and increased safety.”
