According to The Asahi Shimbun, when a trading company receives an order for screws, a massive carousel goes in motion and the required pieces are delivered to waiting workers below.
This eliminates the need for workers at Sunco Industries Co., a trading company that handles 1.94 million kinds of screws and bolts, to scurry about searching for them.
“The need to rush around the warehouse within limited hours has decreased, resulting in a reduced physical burden. So, we’ve seen an increase in female applicants, making our recruitment process smoother,” said Sunco President Yoshihide Okuyama, 49.
