The editors of Multichannel Merchant are excited to announce the launch of our new monthly podcast series, MCM CommerceChat! Each month we’ll talk to thought leaders in ecommerce, omnichannel and marketing about trends and happenings that continue to shape the dynamic world of direct-to-customer selling.
This month we caught up with Chris Elliot, consulting manager with Blue Horseshoe, to discuss the latest in robotics for ecommerce fulfillment operations. Chris advises C-level executives on every facet of supply chain design and implementation, and is a frequent speaker on the topic at industry events.
In the podcast, the discussion ranges from the back story of robotics (Kiva and others), the drivers, capabilities and limitations, the latest solutions and market adoption.
Chris will be speaking on this topic at the seventh annual Ecommerce Operations Summit 2018 in Columbus, OH, along with Melonee Wise, CEO of Fetch Robotics. Their session, “Warehouse Robotics: Tipping Point or Pipe Dream?” will be held Thursday, April 5 at 9 a.m. You can register now for the event by clicking here.
