MANESAR, India -- At a state-of-the-art warehouse 20km up the highway from Delhi's new airport terminal, scanners buzz quietly, controlling conveyor belts sending cartons swirling into the metal arms of robots.

     A package is given the human touch only when loose packaging, incorrect bar coding or some other problem crops up. Machines rule the roost at this logistics facility, which spreads over 28,000 sq. meters, equivalent to 3.5 soccer fields. Next door, a shed covering 37,000 sq. meters is being hammered into shape.
