According to the "People's Daily" report, Cainiao has established Asia's largest robotic warehouse in Wuxi, Jiangsu, with nearly 700 robots operating in the warehouse. Coupled with core technologies such as edge computing and artificial intelligence, the manual operation mode has become real-time Online and automated operations.

Recently, Cainiao announced that the world's first IoT robot distribution center was opened in Nanjing. The robot moves to the distribution center and goes to more than 60 distribution outlets in Nanjing to sort the packages in order to facilitate delivery by the courier.

Cainiao is accelerating the construction of automated warehouses, which means that China's logistics industry is rapidly moving from shoulder-to-shoulder labor-intensive to digital and intelligent technology-intensive upgrades.

According to the People's Daily, you can easily manage the entire logistics park with only one mobile phone in the future. From the rookie Wuxi intelligent warehouse, the 700 handling robots "little blue men" perform their respective duties in the warehouse, with clear division of labor such as picking, delivery, and packing. Cainiao also applies IOT, artificial intelligence, edge computing and other technologies to warehouses. Intelligent devices such as IOT can automatically identify people entering and exiting, directing trucks to load and unload, and even detailed actions such as smoking can be identified and alarmed.

In addition to rookies, JD.com and SF.F. are also following the construction of automated warehouses. According to foreign media reports, JD.com has about 160,000 full-time employees in the Asian region so far. Liu Qiangdong said that he hopes that in the next ten During the year, the company was able to reduce to "less than 8,000" high-paying employees and only need to work two to three hours a day.

Last June, Google announced plans to invest US $ 550 million in JD. This move also allowed JD to deploy the automated warehouse market faster. In addition to its own research and development of handling robots, JD.com is also accelerating the introduction of third-party handling robot products.

As a well-known Chinese company, Cainiao and JD.com have been affecting the development of other industries. Since last year, Cainiao and JD.com have frequently moved in the field of automated warehouses, greatly encouraging the development of the handling robot industry. In the past two years, many handling robot companies have emerged in China. Representatives of the Pearl River Delta are Shenzhen Jingzhi Robot. Its robot product line has covered handling robots, sorting robots, and unmanned forklifts, and its cooperative customers have spread throughout the country. Province, promote the implementation of logistics robot products in the retail industry and 3C processing industry.

Cheng Hui, head of JD.com ’s San Francisco Robotics Research Center, said: "China is currently working to solve the labor shortage problem. The number of suitable young job seekers is decreasing, which makes it more difficult and expensive for companies to fill job vacancies."

According to relevant statistics, by 2030, China's young labor force (aged 20 to 34) will be 221 million, a decrease of 104 million from 2010. "In this sense, automation will help alleviate this contradiction in demand," Cheng Hui said.

China's young labor force is decreasing year by year. According to the current development trend and thinking from the perspective of logistics enterprises, in the future, automated warehouses will be the only solution that can alleviate this contradiction in demand. Improve work efficiency.
