United Parcel Service Inc. has opened its largest warehouse in Louisville, Kentucky, with plans to fill it with over 3,000 robots by next year. The $79 million facility aims to reduce manual labor and enhance efficiency in tasks like lifting. This level of automation allows UPS to operate the warehouse with around 200 workers initially, increasing over time. The use of robots improves order processing speed and accuracy, inventory tracking, and saves space. The move towards automation is part of a strategy to provide cost-effective and high-quality services to customers. The robots also contribute to increased worker retention and a reduction in injuries. The facility is expected to create 500 distribution and logistics jobs, according to Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear’s administration. UPS’s logistics business has seen an 11% sales increase in the first nine months of the year.
