Isn’t warehouse automation too expensive for SMEs?

At first glance, the purchase costs for automated solutions appear higher than for manual systems – but their use achieves a rapid return on investment (ROI). Depending on the scale, they may pay for themselves fully within as little as three to five years! Quality is also a crucial factor when investing in the future: In the long run, inferior solutions can lead to costly downtime or further expenses. Therefore, depending on your company’s strategy and development, gradual integration of automated systems can make sense. This approach allows you to make investments and modernize processes step by step, improving performance slowly and ensuring scalability.
