14:30 How JD.com Built A Fully Autonomous Warehouse The Size Of 7 Football Fields With Nearly Zero Employees
Instead of the usual 500 people to run a 40,000m² fulfilment warehouse, JD.com – China’s logistics and e-commerce giant employ just four people, whose jobs centred around servicing the robots running the warehouse the size of 7 football fields. The warehouse’s complex network of automated machineries is made up of over 1,000 industrial robots that pick, scan, sort, transfer and pack packages using crates on conveyor belts, as well as camera systems and robot controllers. The packages are then picked up by driverless forklifts and brought to the core corresponding truck for delivery to the right destination. With robots alone, the centre can handle over 200,000 orders a day.
