It’s time to start thinking about what a “return to the workplace” entails and looks like. 

With new requirements with social distancing, it may be a good time to consider some new options with material handling and automation in order to stay 6 feet apart. 

Post-COVID life will bring many changes in the way we work. Processes and tasks within logistics and manufacturing centers will need to evolve to accommodate these changes. 

Decision-makers in many industries will be faced with ways to protect their employees with safe distancing while maintaining production efficiencies. 

Automating processes with the use of collaborative robots is a solution that will bridge the gaps in the workplace that social distancing requirements will create.
