There are so many different processes involved in supply chain that need to work hand-in-hand with one another. It only takes a single step that gets disrupted to break down the entire chain of events.

Thinking about the situation, I personally would not be able to come up with an alternative for manually picking out orders in a shop or even in a factory or storage warehouse for that matter. I mean, sure you can automate it, but how many businesses would actually be able to afford that kind of sophisticated technology or AI that needs to be installed to have such a system running in their companies? It's going to be hand and manual -picking for a long while more to come I reckon!
