What is Lights-Out Warehouse?

A lights-out warehouse is an automated storage facility that operates without human intervention. The name “lights-out” refers to the fact that the facility operates without any lights on as there are no human operators present. The entire operation is managed by automated systems such as conveyor belts, robotic arms, and automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS). 

In a lights-out warehouse, the entire process from receiving and storing goods to picking and shipping is automated. This type of warehouse is becoming increasingly popular in the shipping industry as it offers several benefits, including increased efficiency, reduced labor costs, and improved safety.
