The need for traceability is a current trend in the food sector. An automated warehouse can help food and beverage managers easily track and trace products in the warehouse, whereas a warehouse utilizing only manual operations is more vulnerable to traceability errors. “Humans are prone to mistakes, but with the robotics side of things, you get consistency, reliability and your inspections go much more smoothly,” noted David Noble, VP of sales and marketing at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based Seegrid.

However, while regulatory compliance is getting tougher, robotics can help meet the new demands.
