Wired has this video of the Ocado's warehouse in Dordon, north-east of Birmingham, which uses automation and AI to solve a rather gigantic issue of logistics.

The 90,000-square-metre warehouse, which opened in February 2013, is the starting point for 190,000 customer deliveries every week. Inside, more than 35 kilometres of conveyor belts shuttle plastic crates between storage shelves and picking areas.
