    Skilled labour shortage in intralogistics

    Skilled labour shortage in intralogistics

    4am Robotics is creating space for valuable human employees

    The shortage of skilled labour means that an increasing number of companies are finding it challenging to manage the day-to-day workload, which makes it abundantly clear that businesses’ most important resource is its employees. Their expertise, experience and dedication is irreplaceable. However, this is especially the case when there’s a skilled labour shortage, which forces companies to deal with the unenviable task of strengthening their workforce while remaining competitive in an extremely tough environment. At 4am Robotics, we understand that it's not just about developing innovative technologies, but also about how they can help to free up valuable labour and deploy it more effectively.

    In today's world, employees are every company's most valuable asset. They make a significant contribution to success and are at the heart of every organisation. That being said, staff shortages can have a huge detrimental effect. Innovative solutions and systems are needed to tackle the issue that not only increase efficiency, but also make the human workforce the main focus.

    We’re acutely aware of the essential role employees play in a company’s success, and that they can’t just be replaced by technology. However, our autonomous mobile robotics solutions, consisting of autonomous tugger trains, forklifts and cobots, go beyond simple automation. They’re intelligent and helpful colleagues that are there to support and assist our valuable human colleagues in completing routine tasks, giving them the space, they need to thrive.

    Autonomous mobile robots as new employees and colleagues?


    Freeing up resources, encouraging innovation

    Product solutions from 4am Robotics aren’t just designed to automate processes, they’re on hand to free up valuable resources. By taking over repetitive, time-consuming and risky tasks, our autonomous mobile robots can give our human employees the space they need to focus on more creative activities that add real value. Freeing up labour capacity creates space for innovation and personal development.

    Technology as a partner

    You may often hear that technology could take people’s jobs away from them in the future. We’re looking at things more positively at 4am Robotics. We believe that technology should be seen as a tool that supports and complements the skills of the human workforce rather than replacing it. Besides, automation gives people breathing space to focus more and carry out tasks that provide greater value more effectively, and for longer periods. Our autonomous mobile robots are there with them every step of the way and are more than just machines – they’re intelligent assistants designed in line with the most stringent safety standards. They work side by side with employees, ensuring that everybody wins.

    Sustainable value creation through intelligent robotics: working together for future-proof intralogistics

    Our goal at 4am Robotics is not just to deliver technology, but to develop systems that our customers can use to create sustainable value. Our autonomous mobile robots are designed to create a better working environment in which man and machine can work together in perfect harmony. We see this is the best way to ensure that companies are fit for the future, not only in terms of the technology they have at their disposal, but making sure that their workforce is operating at peak efficiency as well.

    With this in mind, we’re looking forward to working with our customers to meet the challenges of the skills shortage and shape the future of intralogistics. Our intelligent colleagues at 4am Robotics are ready to support valuable employees and help companies move forward.


    We’re forging the future of intralogistics and creating added value for everyone involved.
