Having my lunch today & watching news on television there was a video about mercadona logistics center .It was just hilarious how the distribution system works. Automation robots higher than 10meters working 24h in a enormous area. Whenever someone of us going to mercadona buying something the logistics center receive that message and knows already how many products missing for that store. The amazing was that only robots are in there doing that job. No ones lift weights and packages.

I’m trying hard to find that video so i can show you furthermore.

A company makes a product (in our case packages of fruits)and it delivers to another company. Then those products are sold to customers.
