China's labor advantage has been lost, and the rising labor costs and declining labor population are causing headaches for Chinese companies, especially the traditional warehouses in China rely heavily on low labor costs. Today ’s situation for traditional warehouse management companies will only be limited in the future. Transform to intelligent warehouses and reduce dependence on manpower.

According to data provided by Yao Jingyuan, a special researcher in the counselor's office of the State Council and former chief economist of the National Bureau of Statistics: China's post-80s population was 228 million, but the post-00s population dropped to 120 million. After 00 is 100 million less than after 80.

Data released by the Bureau of Statistics in January 2016 showed that at the end of 2015, China's working-age population aged 16 to 59 was 911 million, a net decrease of 4.87 million from the end of 2014. This is also the fourth consecutive year of decline in the working-age population. The net reductions in the working-age population in the first three years were 3.45 million, 2.44 million, and 3.71 million, respectively. According to the data in recent years, China ’s labor force has decreased by more than 10 million people, so it is directly reflected in the economy that it leads to a sharp rise in China ’s labor costs, and it will only become more severe in the future.

Most warehouses in China are in a very primitive stage, relying heavily on low labor costs to move goods back and forth by manpower, but with the labor cost rising year by year, it has reached an unbearable level, so the transformation of traditional warehouses to intelligent warehouses is already inevitable.

Henry Peng, CEO of ShenzhenWellwit Robotics Hi-tech Robotics Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Wellwit Robotics), said: "There are already a variety of equipment such as handling robots (AGVs), unmanned forklifts, sorting robots, and compound robots on the market. It is an indispensable device for the transformation of traditional warehouses into intelligent warehouses. "

"The handling AGV equipment developed by Wellwit Robotics has been well applied in domestic intelligent warehouses. At the same time, Wellwit Robotics can customize the handling and movement of goods weighing up to one ton according to user needs. By docking with the warehouse management system, it can monitor the warehouse inventory in real time And equipment operating status to achieve intelligent warehouse management. "

"Unmanned forklifts can realize the stacking and moving of goods. For traditional forklifts, unmanned forklifts can achieve unmanned operation, autonomous movement, intelligent obstacle avoidance, cargo handling and stacking operations, helping to optimize the unloading management of unmanned storage. While reducing manual investment to avoid accidents at work. "

"The cross-belt sorting machine and inclined wheel sorting machine can realize the rapid movement and classification of products. The 3D visual recognition system and weight weighing system are used for classification management to save manpower to the greatest extent."

In recent years, most of the world's fastest-growing e-commerce companies are in China. Some e-commerce centers have already begun to introduce intelligent storage systems. By moving AGVs and sorting AGVs, the efficiency of retail picking areas can be greatly improved. At the same time, the introduction of three-dimensional warehouse equipment, through the cross-belt sorter, inclined wheel sorter, shuttle, unmanned forklift and other equipment, to create unmanned intelligent storage equipment, and improve the throughput of the warehouse.

According to a recent report by Xinhua News Agency, a man-machine competition was held in a logistics warehouse in Shanghai. Six unmanned forklift trucks competed with six senior forklift drivers in the two phases of entering and leaving the warehouse. Under the unified command of the dispatching system, a fleet of unmanned forklifts traveled smoothly and cooperated with each other. In the end, with a maximum speed of 3 meters per second, and good stability, coordination and safety, the unmanned fleet won.

Behind the human-machine battle, high-tech reforms the traditional logistics industry, making the latter more efficient and smarter.

The development of artificial intelligence technology will promote the development of intelligent warehouses to higher-level intelligent warehouses. After the production plan of intelligent warehouses is made, materials and manpower requirements are automatically generated, inventory and purchase orders are viewed, and logistics is planned and completed. If there are not enough materials to meet the production requirements, the system will automatically recommend modifying the plan to produce equivalent products.

Of course, traditional warehouse transformation cannot be achieved in one step, but it needs to gradually transition to intelligent warehouses. In the future, traditional warehouses in China will face two situations: one is eliminated and the other is the transformation of enterprises with strong capital strength to intelligent warehouses. In the future, intelligent warehouses need talents with high-quality skills. Simple and repetitive labor will be replaced or assisted by robots. Building an intelligent warehouse will get rid of the dependence on low-end labor, which is also an urgent need for Chinese companies to do.
