What do you think you’ll take away from this episode?
Many logistics and warehouse firms are hoping that automation will be the answer as e-commerce parcel volumes grow.
So How does automation works in the warehouse and logistics industry?
In each case, automation allows for the completion of repetitive, time-consuming operations with less human intervention.
Leveraging automation technologies to complete the warehouse and logistics activities saves employers hours of time-consuming effort and can focus on other complicated tasks.
Two ways automation aids the warehouse and logistics firms.
First. Data collection. The traditional data collection process relies on handwritten notes or a manual data entry process.
By empowering a digital database, the information is entered in the spreadsheet or a database, which can be then utilised for various purposes.
Second. Gaining better inventory Control. Maintaining inventory is usually a herculean task that involves many repetitive processes.
Automation helps cut down most of the iterative tasks that consume more time. Most industries have currently imported software applications such as WMS and ERP to manage most monotonous works in the warehouse and logistics centres.
In light of this, today, several warehouses and logistics centres have begun to deploy automated dimensioning systems integrated with WMS software, barcode scanners, and label printers to perform several operations in one go!
And that’s the logistics insight for today.
