Robots replace entire warehouse staff.

This is a rather stupid article about a pretty amazing robot implementation in China.

THIS army of tiny orange robots which can sort up to 200,000 packages every DAY in a Chinese warehouse are providing an alarming glimpse of what the future could hold in factories around the world.

These miniature machines, each just 7.5 inches, follow a set route and transport parcels from the assembly line to the departure gates where they are then dispatched.

In the STO Express building in Liny, Shandong Province, the 300 robots can get through 20,000 parcels every hour.

The self-charging workers have saved the company, which has 300,000 employees, a staggering 70 per cent of manpower.

I can hear the boys at CUPE headquarters melting down from here.

True, but if said parcels fall into the hands of Canada Post they won't get delivered anyway.

Hi Bill. Yeah, Canada Post is a very "special" group of people, and I mean that in the Short Bus kind of way. ~:D
