Investing in automation, from packaging to robotics has been Booktopia’s digital transformation strategy. The company saw a massive influx of sales last year, and the only way to handle such a dramatic uptick was to automate.
The $10 million investment in automation last year allowed the company to increase their scale from 30,000 to 60,000 books per day. This included deploying machines that increased packaging capabilities from 120 parcels an hour to 1600 an hour. Booktopia is now looking to robotics to trial improvements in shelving products.
In today‘s minicast we hear from Tony Nash, CEO of Booktopia, as he unpacks the company‘s ability to scale through automation.
