An important contribution of this research is to identify the core reasons for automation: the rising costs resulting from operational challenges caused by higher consumer expectations from the e-commerce trend. As U.S. e-commerce sales continue to grow at over 15% annually, suppliers feel the pressure to satisfy e-commerce customers by delivering more varieties of goods in smaller sizes faster. This translates into complex operational challenges that are costly to tackle, especially when labor and land costs continue to rise.
