Technology used in warehousing can mean a range of different things.
Some of the types of technology used in warehousing include:
- RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Tracking
- Multi-Modal Technologies
- Voice Tasking & Warehouse Efficiency
- OAU (Optimal Asset Utilisation)
- Predictive Assets Lifecyle Management
- Streamlining Warehouse Lighting
- IoT (Internet of Things)
Each of these types of technology will have a different effect on your warehouse and how it operates. Warehouse Optimisation will allow you to find out which of these technologies could benefit your business and how. Warehouse design will enable you to find out if automated technology could save you space, time and money in the long run.
Technology in warehousing is something for all companies, whether large or small to consider; the possible savings that could be made are huge! For example, in 2016 Deutsche Bank estimated Amazon could save £603,000,000 in one-time cost savings if it deployed Kiva robots across all it’s fulfilment centres.
