Amazon rolls out machines that pack orders and replace jobs
14 Mai, 2019, 15:57 | Auteur: Auguste Feret
As Reuters reports, Amazon has been experimenting with a new type of automated packaging robot that can 3D scan the goods included in an order as they travel down a conveyor belt. The two people involved in the project who spoke to Reuters also mentioned that the tech giant considered installing two such machines "at dozens more warehouses", a move which would remove at least 24 jobs in each location. Those have high turnover because boxing multiple orders per minute over 10 hours is taxing work.
Reuters reported that the massive online retailer would start installing machines that box items before delivery at some of its fulfillment centers.
And they require only three operatives: one to load customer orders, one to stock cardboard and glue, one to fix occasional jams.
Amazon is reportedly taking a step towards replacing some of its workers with machines.
