Automated Logistics System - most effective solution and trends

The coronavirus pandemic resulted in 2020 in a significant increase of demand for warehouse automation. The dynamic changes taking place on the global and local markets, the obligation to adapt to new rules, as well as the need to maintain business continuity, optimize processes or minimize costs have forced many companies to change their digital transformation strategy - the implementation of innovative technologies has become a priority for them.

According to estimates by . s , the warehouse automation market will reach $ 30 billion by 2026, with a 14% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in 2020-2026. According to specialists, the dynamic development of this sector is related to, inter alia, the significant increase in the importance of the e-commerce and multi-channel distribution industry, the globalization of the supply chain network, robotization in logistics, the constantly growing need to deliver goods on the same day or the need to increase the efficiency of warehouse services.

WMS 4.0

According to data, fully automated warehouse systems can help to optimize logistics activities in a warehouse to 60% and reduce warehouse operating costs by up to 65%. It is therefore not surprising that more and more companies decide to carry out a digital revolution in the field of warehouse management by implementing innovations and the effective use of breakthrough technologies such as cloud-based WMS and artificial intelligence.

"In accordance with the concept of Industry 4.0, the idea of ​​the WMS 4.0 system assumes the wide use of innovative digital technologies that are designed to improve communication and exchange of information between all elements that make up the supply chain in the warehouse - employees, devices, products, systems, warehouse infrastructure and processes - and thus, maximize efficiency and minimize costs of business.

The investment in a WMS system, which can bring even several dozen percent increase in efficiency, is very promising. There are, however, some barriers. One of such obstacles that appears on the way to the technological development of warehouses is the fact that the implementation of a WMS system often involves a large financial investment and organizational challenges.

Clients receive access to the system immediately - without unnecessary formalities or time-consuming and costly implementations Its great advantage is not only an attractive method of financing and short implementation time, but also intuitive operation, scalability and flexibility.

Artificial intelligence in the warehouse

A strong trend in the development of modern WMS systems is the digitization of all key processes, the use of technologically advanced tools, such as sensors, and supporting human work with artificial intelligencealgorithms. Intelligent solutions offered by WMS PINQUARK are constantly updated and improved to increase the efficiency of key processes in the warehouse - such as: multipicking, handling returns and complaints, tracking batches of goods, simultaneous handling of B2B and B2C orders, management of goods placement and optimization of picking path. The implementation of the intelligent WMS PINQUARK system in warehouses is supported by the fact that it takes into account more variables than a human can do - thanks to it, the efficiency of warehouse processes may increase by up to several dozen percent.
In order to constantly develop and build a strong competitive advantage, entrepreneurs must be aware that a currently well-functioning warehouse requires the use of a technologically advanced WMS system, such as PINQUARK. Innovative IT solutions provide companies with new possibilities and unattainable so far flexibility in adapting to the requirements of a dynamically changing market. They help to increase the efficiency of warehouse processes, optimize the efficiency of the entire supply chain and reduce the costs of business.
