Came across a walk through video of a modern McLane distribution center, thought others might find it interesting:

Interesting facility, thanks.  Maybe the Schaefer Group / SSI SHAEFER will be offered to Berkshire someday...

Interesting. Thanks for posting. McLane ain’t boring after all! Who’d have thunk of AI and McLane in the same sentence. With the tight margin environment that retail distribution has to deal with, investing in AI and Robotics is exactly what moat widening looks like. BNSF was recently in the news doing similarly, outspending their peers.

That video was freaking amazing!  I am really impressed.  With that amount of autonomy an engineering in place, I am surprised that McLane is not performing better.

Really impressive!
