Automated Solutions to Empower the Workforce

The warehouse and manufacturing industries are at a crossroads when it comes to the workforce. Labor is more costly than ever – 65% of the operating budget for most facilities – and some of those valuable workers are stuck doing repetitive, non-value-added work.

At NITCO, we have a solution. Warehouse automation is the way of the future, and our experts can help lead your transformation. We analyze every aspect of your operation and recommend areas that can be automated to relieve the burden of redundant, mundane tasks. The workforce is still an integral part of your operations, and with warehouse automation, they can be empowered to focus more on the skilled work they’re good at and enjoy doing.

NITCO has the resources to improve all facets of your labor usage with warehouse automation. Our automated solutions touch nearly every aspect of supply chain operations, product transport, sorting, picking, distribution, and even cleaning. Some of our most popular labor solutions include:

  • AGVs/AMRs: These robotic vehicles can be used in a wide variety of horizontal tasks, and materials handling, such as pallet moving, transport of large products, and even storage solutions.
  • Pickers: Picking automation allows you to zone your workforce into areas of high efficiency, and robotic assistants can transport goods from zone to zone.
  • Cobotics: Cobotics engage and interact with human employees to improve efficiency and include applications such as robotic arms that can sort, assemble, and package.

If you have any questions about NITCO labor solutions or would like to discuss what empowering your workforce would look like for you, speak to one of our experts. We have helped warehouses of all shapes and sizes save time and money with our services.

Testimonial

“If we have an equipment casualty, or if we’re having a problem with a piece of equipment, they’ll come out and analyze the situation on the spot and put it back in line. The trucks themselves do not fail. You get on it, it goes. If you need it, it’s there. All the equipment is that way. It does not fail.”

- Distribution Center Manager, Renys Department Store Herman Long
