Panel discussion: Are halls ready for automation and robotics?

Panel discussion: Are halls ready for automation and robotics?

The automation and robotization of intralogistics are discussed everywhere, but we don’t often talk about the basic prerequisites for their development, i.e., the preparation of halls. What prevents automated and robotic warehouse technology from being placed in old halls? What technical modifications are necessary in the original buildings? How expensive is it to build a sustainable new hall on a brownfield site and install automated or robotic systems in it? Does greenfield work out cheaper when considering legislative, ESG, and economic demands? What are the basic and above-standard technical requirements for new halls with automation or robotics? How willing are production companies to invest in new warehouses or brownfield conversions to build automated or robotic warehouse operations? We will try to answer these questions in a panel discussion with representatives of companies that are automating, those that offer automation, and developers that build industrial real estate.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Patricia Jakešová, consultant in the fields of retail, logistics and automation.
