“Our main problem before introducing AMRs was that our productivity and efficiency were just too low, and our labor costs were too high. After careful consideration of various solutions, we chose to implement ForwardX Flex AMRs. …Since deploying, we’ve seen huge increases in productivity and efficiency, significant reductions in labor costs, and our error rate has improved too.”
