"As such, 51 per cent of global decision-makers and 56 per cent of APAC (including India) decision-makers feel the most important labour initiative is to reduce unnecessary tasks so associates can focus on more customer-centric work and utilise their workforce more efficiently," Zebra Technologies Asia Pacific, vice president and head for India and subcontinent business, Rajnish Gupta said.

According to the report, 27 per cent of warehouse operators globally and in APAC (including India) have already deployed some form of AMR at present.

"Nearly eight in 10 warehouse associates in APAC (79 per cent) and globally (78 per cent) say walking fewer miles per day would make their jobs more enjoyable, even if they had to pick or handle more items, and many strongly believe AMRs could make warehouse jobs less stressful," the report said.
