Our very own Norm Saenz was quoted in a recent Food Logistics article about warehouse automation. He discussed how the labor market affects the need for increased automation, especially in places where the environment is undesirable. Use the link below to read the article!
“The labor shortage and high turnover rates are the main reasons for the continued rise of automation in cold storage warehouses,” says Norm Saenz, Jr., partner, distribution managing director, St. Onge Company. “Operating in coolers and especially freezers can be tough working environments compared to ambient operations. With an already tightening labor market, cold storage operators are in an increasingly difficult position to attract and retain employees. In addition, the development of more automated freezer applications is helping expand the use of automation in cold storage operations. The use of automation, such as ASRS pallet-load crane storage systems, removes operators from working within cooler and freezers. This and other areas of labor savings continues to drive the use of automation in cold storage operations.”
