E-Commerce. Mastering warehouse logistics
Overview of affordable technologies and automation solutions
The economic development of e-commerce is impressive: more than 20 years of stable growth across all sectors, most recently double-digit growth rates during the pandemic, even when local retailers reopened and even in areas that were not affected by the lockdown. The convenience of shopping at the touch of a button is attractive. That's because retailers' service gets better and better the faster their logistics can deliver.
However, expectations regarding delivery capability and short delivery times are growing at the same rate. For suppliers, this means gearing their internal processes to stable speed so that they can supply their customers with good performance even during seasonal peaks and unexpected peaks in demand. The status as a preferred retailer is closely linked to stable logistics. The task for store operators - with their own websites or on online marketplaces - is to meet the challenges in the warehouse.
