Robots are Being Overhyped for eCommerce

Almost every trade magazine you pick up today has an article telling how great robots are for improving productivity in distribution centers (DCs). Many articles include photos and videos showing autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) moving down an aisle in a picking zone with claims of large increases in picking performance. AMRs are fine for some DC tasks in receiving and shipping, but with rare exceptions, they are poor choices and are being overhyped for fulfillment of eCommerce orders consisting of a few lines of mixed products.
