Autonomous and Mobile Pick Robots conquer E-Commerce Fulfillment

Are traditional retail models on the brink of collapse? Clearly, the fact remains that not only promotion days such as Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc. are putting increased pressure on retailers and logistics service providers operating in this sector. The required "customer experience" also requires a strategic reorientation, which has to be expressed as cleverly as possible at the operative level, and not just as an afterthought. Inventory structures need to be re-evaluated as well with the use of modern technologies.

In October 2018, around 40 top-class experts and speakers from the online trade met with Zalando and MAGAZINO to discuss scenarios for fulfillment in 2025.
