What You Will Learn

How can automation can help e-commerce companies keep pace with new online shopping demands, high transportation costs, supply chain issues and product shortages? The massive uptake in e-commerce sales has put new pressure on warehouses and distribution centers (DCs) to fulfill orders, while dealing with an unprecedented labor shortage, high transportation costs and shortages of supply chain and product. To top it off, everyone who places an order online wants it as quickly and accurately as possible. This means faster and faster turnarounds – and a more exhausted workforce. It also leads to more mis-picks, the higher cost of handling returns, and dissatisfied customers associated with shipping the wrong item. Traditional methods for controlling the supply of goods are not working. Uncontrolled inventories, errors in order preparation, inadequate demand-planning processes and lack of rapid responses to changing market conditions are some of the obvious problems.

Fortunately, there are automated storage systems that can help address all these challenges and stay competitive now and in the future.
