What once was science fiction is now a part of modern life. Flying drones are common these days.But they are increasingly proving their worth to online retailers and customers living in hard-to-reach areas.
My experience as a user has been very good because we live in the countryside. Using a drone is very convenient and quick. It’s very high-tech.
High-tech goes hand-in-hand with today’s digital marketplace.Technological and scientific progress will always lead to changes in the society and the drone technology is only part of it.Our company wants to make contributions to the society. So we hope to cause less harm in the course of technological progress.Automation at this workshop in Shanghai makes rapid growth possible for online retailer Best Ink.
Nowadays it’s hard to recruit a large number of people to do intensive manual work if our business is to grow 50 to 60 percent a year,it’s impossible to also increase manpower by the same percentage,therefore, under these circumstances, I think technologies can improve efficiency in the long term.
So automation helps a retailer’s output but it’s not without a human cost.
In the past, many positions were dependent on manpower.Now because of modernization, after we implement automation many positions have been replaced by machines,so in the future it may become a problem for employment.
The future will likely mean fewer workers and more robots automating their jobs but for now at least men and machines still need to work together as a team.
