Distribution Center Jobs Still Growing Reports Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler
Oakland Park, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/17/2017 -- Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler predicted that distribution jobs will continue to grow with automation and robots increasing impact. All told, warehouse and distribution employment remains a bright spot on the US jobs front. For example, warehousing operators added 3,100 jobs from October to November, and have boosted payrolls by 47,400 jobs over the past 12 months, according to statistics from the US Dept. of Labor. All told there are about 880,000 warehouse workers in the US, with 103,00 of them in California.
But those numbers, which have shown similar patterns now for several years, bely the growing use of automation that is clearly reducing in many cases the number of workers needed to run a major distribution center, as robots and other forms of automation take a growing share of repetitive manual labor, just as they are doing in manufacturing.
Thomas R. Cutler will meet with the Manufacturing Media Consortium on January 27, 2017 in Madrid, Spain. Cutler will lead the meeting with several hundred members of the European members of the Manufacturing Media Consortium.
