White paper: Global trends in supply chain automation


The massive global growth in e-commerce over the past few years has fundamentally changed the logistics and supply chain sector.

Not only is there a far greater volume of goods being moved through warehouses, it is also being moved faster than ever. The increase in speed has largely been achieved using automation systems as well as digital processes, bringing artificial intelligence into the mix.

In this white paper, we will look more closely at the components of the logistics and supply chain which are enabling customers to order goods from anywhere in the world and yet receive them in record times.

Moreover, we take a closer look at perhaps the most critical component of the supply chain – the warehouse operation, and highlight some data which indicates how robotics, automation and AI are making warehouses increasingly efficient and productive.
