    Logistics for the Circular Economy: Being part of the solution, finally

    The circular economy aims at decoupling economic prosperity from environmental damage. It is a counter-proposal to our current linear economy and focuses on preserving the value of materials and products instead of disposing of them quickly. Even though the general notion seems intuitive, and some strategies have been practiced for decades, implementing circular economy principles is far from easy. Logistics can play a major role in this endeavor – if logisticians accept this role. This talk showcases how logistics can drive the transition towards a more circular economy and, thereby, come off the defensive on environmental issues.

    Digitalization in Logistics

    Logistics leaders’ discuss the role digital solutions and tools play in their logistics.
  1. Presentation

    10:00 Between New Work and fragile supply chains – is our logistics sufficiently flexible?

    With all the changes we are currently experiencing, it is a good time to question whether the processes we have designed will be able to withstand the challenges of the next few years. In S/4HANA projects many customers are designing the logistics processes of the future. Here, the focus should not only be on how existing processes will be integrated into the system, but also on thinking about new paths and corporate orientations:

    How much freedom of design and decision-making do logistical processes give our employees? Will the future focus continue to be on the customers free choice of delivery date, or will the effects of rising logistics costs be the driver for necessary consolidation and cooperation? Do IT systems have to become more flexible so that logistics can react flexibly to changes?
  2. Presentation

    10:30 With Transparency to Resilience - The »SAP Intertwining« of Storing and Transportation

    The price for the increasingly intensive interaction between production, warehouse logistics, and transportation logistics is a multitude of challenges that logisticians or dispatchers have to face today: They have to reconcile supply chain management with increasing traffic volumes, manage supply risks such as container bottlenecks and make sense of AI-based systems. From the perspective of the »SAP intertwining« of warehousing and transportation logistics, Christopher Kuhn presents, among other things, the potential of SAP Extended Warehouse Management and SAP Transportation Management, which can be an answer to the challenges described.
  3. Presentation

    10:45 See More, Understand More – More Throughput and More Efficient Processes with Machine Vision.

    Machine Vision can be an added value to your existing automation or enable you to automate processes stable where you never thought you could. We can be the eyes of your Logistic by Reading Codes, Guiding Robots or checking quality of products. In these 15 minutes, we will virtually walk you through some stations of a typical distribution center and explain by means of examples how current image processing technology can be used to rethink processes.
  4. Presentation

    11:00 Successful use of mobile transport robots

    The use of mobile robots to automate transports in intralogistics is currently omnipresent in the media. This creates the impression that the technology is already being used hundreds of thousands of times in daily business across all sectors. However, this does not correspond to reality. Only a few companies are using this technology on a large scale so far. SAFELOG provides an insight into how the situation actually is and which hurdles have to be overcome for the successful use of mobile robots.
  5. Presentation

    11:15 Reduce time & costs by optimizing mobile processes

    Integrated hardware and software solutions for the digitalization in the driver's cab accelerate the processes, create transparency and save time and money. Most of the common problems are presented and the appropriate solutions are shown by using examples.
  6. Presentation

    11:30 ZF showing you the next level of a new digital solutions platform for commercial vehicle fleets that enables efficient Transport as-a-Service (TaaS).

    There are still far too many empty journeys in the freight sector - the rate is around 25 percent. The utilization is therefore far from optimal. And it gets even more complicated: Imagine coordinating a mixed fleet consisting of electrically powered trucks, autonomous transporters and traditional driver-driven trucks. To coordinate such mixed fleets perfectly, you need a system that can handle complex resources and complex situations. We have built a completely new platform from scratch - modular, based on microservices and hyperscalable. This platform, which we call Fleet Orchestration platform SCALAR, is dynamic and equipped with machine learning and AI.
  7. Presentation

    11:45 Control of automated warehouse technology with SAP – EWM

    Automated warehouses, autonomous devices and robots are every day live in many places and are respected in green field planning and retrofits more and more. SAP – EWM opens up the control of material handling equipment with its integrated material flow system (MFS). Experience the possibilities of integration, the advantages of using SAP – EWM MFS and the innovative solutions, making EWM – MFS your success.
  8. Presentation

    12:00 Humans and robots: Why one does not exclude the other. Our ethical principles.

    The latest technologies and the associated digitization of work and private life bring with them many conveniences and conveniences. But in the world of work, robotics technologies in particular are viewed critically. The fear of many is that robots will replace human labor and that humans will become superfluous. Markus Schlotter explains in his master class why Exotec sees things differently. He discusses Exotec's vision, ethical principles and why humans and robots can profitably complement each other.
  9. Presentation

    12:15 AI-Powered Warehouse Automation

    A large part of warehouse automation is the ability to configure hundreds of algorithms in parallel. During a warehouse operation, many decisions need to be made on the back end simultaneously, such as order management optimization, traffic management optimization and inventory management optimization. Learn how Caja robotics uses AI to make tough decisions and accurately calculate the entire operation’s next moves.
  1. Presentation

    10:00 Punctual and efficient tour planning with active smart tour

    In our presentation, Tobias Braun and Dirk Materne will elaborate how smoothly the implementation of the AI-based tour optimization active smart tour worked for our customer and how quick and easy local transport scheduling is now.
  2. Presentation

    10:30 By means of accurate and complete logistics master data towards high performance warehouses

    Without master data it´s hard to automize. That´s not a secret. It´s also not a secret that almost every company has one or another master data skeleton in the closet and that actually nobody has the desire and time to deal with master data. So how do you manage to collect exactly the data that you need in a simple, fast, and automated way? In this master class you will find out how intelligent software can help and how you can use it to raise your logistics processes to a new level of efficiency.
  3. Presentation

    10:45 How Dimensioning, Machine Vision and Warehouse Robotics can help you face the new demands of the market

    Due to various external influences, the demands on the transport & logistics market are constantly increasing. You get insights into our current Warehouse Vision Study and we show how new technologies such as dimensioning, machine vision systems or robotics make your processes safer and more efficient, so that you can offer your customers reliable quality while keeping costs under control.
  4. Presentation

    11:00 With automation solutions in SAP EWM against the increasing labour shortage

    Many entrepreneurs know this new problem: The order books are full, turnover could be increased, but there are no employees to process these orders. The strenuous and often repetitive tasks in the warehouse ensure that the labour shortage in this sector is glaring in many regions. How can automation be used to counteract this in the long term without losing the flexibility of a dynamically growing company? IGZ has a number of solutions in the SAP EWM environment that really take the pressure off the workers and help your business grow.
  5. Presentation

    11:30 Digital transport processes & transport visibility in real time - shipping agents and freight forwarders working together as equals

    Two criteria are crucial for successfully developing sustainable platform products:

    3. Product
    4. Cooperation

    That’s why a transport visibility solution that works in real time offers true added value to all participants in the transport industry.

    Our solution is designed to optimally support both sides of the road transport equation, that is transport customers and service providers, as they organise and plan their transport logistics.

    The market is in flux right now, and demographic developments and the current geopolitical situation are showing no signs of easing.

    The best solution is one that transforms the customer/supplier relationship into a strong, resilient partnership.
    Our smart, interconnected tools make life easier for dispatchers and their customers, by ensuring that shipping agents, freight forwarders and carriers can cooperate as equals, instead of having to navigate expensive bilateral APIs connected to complicated isolated applications.
    We will use real life use-cases to demonstrate how these solutions help and support our community of 150,000 users.
  6. Presentation

    11:45 This is how inbound management works today: Transparency, process control and cost reduction thanks to intelligent collaboration with suppliers and forwarders

    Everyone is talking about supply chain resilience - but this is often equated with real-time visibility. For manufacturing companies, understanding influences on their supply chain - from suppliers to customers - is critical. A resilient supply chain means that it responds, persists and adapts to change as part of its execution. Supplier management in particular offers a lot of potential to stabilize inbound processes and make them more economical through close collaboration and transparency. Michael Rölli talks real use cases to show how processes in inbound management can be adapted and actively controlled based on transparency-promoting collaboration options with suppliers and carriers through the use of digital communication channels, real-time data and slot bookings - and what cost-saving potential this has to offer.
  7. Presentation

    12:00 Forward-looking tenant behaviour in a landlord market

    How can logistics tenants deal with the increasing pressure of space scarcity? For logisticians without in-depth real estate know-how, we address the interdependencies of the financial and real estate industries. We present ways in which tenants can use tactical and strategic advantages to gain access to modern space at reasonable costs.
  8. Presentation

    12:30 Skyfall: #perfectmatch for e-commerce

  1. Presentation

    13:30 Why thinking in projects will destroy your product

    Digitalization has made the world more fast-paced than ever, so you can no longer afford to wait for the final outcome of a major project. Original concept designs from a provider are usually long outdated again, both visually and technically, by the time they are implemented. That's why rapid market maturity is needed to remain competitive today. Therefore, those who bet on digitalization can no longer avoid agile product development!
    Learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of project business and why the product approach of a warehouse management system like storelogix will set new standards in the logistics industry.
  2. Presentation

    13:45 Paper and pencil are superfluous: Automated inventory with drones and AI

    The inventory of a warehouse is mostly a manual process in which many human resources are tied up in counting physical goods and regular daily business is disrupted. An inventory is mandatory at least once a year - but it can also be an important tool for companies to uncover deficient operations or processes and create transparency. For this reason, a drone and AI-based approach has been developed to automate manual counting as part of an inventory. We will show you our approach to automated inventory and how it can save up to 90% of inventory effort.
  3. Presentation

    14:15 Logistics follows Strategy

    Is everyone aware of the scope of logistics when it comes to implementing the sales strategy in terms of growth plans, internationality, omnichannel distribution or even consolidation?

    From its projects for well-known companies, Metroplan reports on the skills that logistics use to successfully implement these requirements. It is not about forklifts and load carriers, but about the strategically important building blocks such as network studies, location search, warehouse planning, construction planning, financing, amortization calculation and successful ramp-up management.
  4. Presentation

    14:45 Inbound Logistics Optimization through Supply Chain Collaboration

    It’s all about the ETA: No matter if you are importing components for your industrial production or items for your e-commerce business, reliable information about the Estimated Time of Arrival of your goods and containers is key for customer success.

  9. Presentation

    16:45 State-of-the-art Robotics: How to ensure efficient and future-proof order fulfillment processes

    The integration of robotics is no longer a future trend, but has already become an integral part of intralogistics at many companies. Robotics help companies to meet increasing customer requirements at all times. As part of the masterclass, Kardex experts will use the example of different order fulfillment systems to explain how pick-and-place robotics take performance to a new level while enabling efficient and flexible processes.
  10. Presentation

    17:15 Transforming an industry: Shaping the logistics of the future

    Cutting-edge improvements in technology have been the driving force when it comes to autonomization and how it has been reshaping the way we work. In the robotics space, there are a plethora of solutions to perform almost any task there is. However, autonomous mobile robots such as the iw.hub distinctly stand out from other options in intralogistics, which is why AMRs have become valuable assets in all kinds of businesses.
  11. Presentation

    17:45 Digitalisation potential of your existing intralogistics system.

    In many cases, intralogistics systems consist of customised special systems, each of which represent a unique material flow. These individual process chains can represent decisive competitive advantages in the market and are thus among the essential infrastructures of the companies. It is therefore all the more important to match the performance of these intralogistics systems with the current technical possibilities.

    Our experience is that the great technological progress in the field of mechanical engineering in recent years is increasingly being countered by installed technology that is getting on in years. Operators risk decreasing plant availability and leave considerable savings potential unused.

    In my keynote speech, I will show you the extensive potential offered by a RetroFit and the high degree of digitalisation we can realise with it.

    Micro Fulfillment is a smart and efficient solution for retailers and their last mile delivery - especially in cities where space is limited and expensive. MFCs enable retailers to be highly dynamic in their order processing: goods can be picked the same day the order is placed, ready for immediate pickup by the customer, or delivered directly to the customer's door. Mirco Fulfillment is emerging as a solution for online grocery in some parts of the world. But is it really a universal solution for the world's (major) cities? Or do regional differences - for example in terms of (shopping) culture, infrastructure and demographics - have an impact on the concept of micro fulfillment?
  7. Presentation

    16:00 Container Management in Transformation - The Way to a Holistic Supply Chain Network for Reusable Transport Packaging!

    Logistical cycles have always been the focus of attention when it comes to increasing efficiency and sustainability. In this context, reusable transport packaging and loading equipment, as constants in the flow of materials and production, are the central link of logistical functions. It always gets expensive when containers are missing or overstocks are penalized with high costs. Many companies are currently faced with the challenges of mapping container debts transparently and comprehensibly, optimizing cycles in terms of demand and availability, and reducing disposable packaging materials. Closer integration of all process participants, more transparent processes in real time, and intelligent identification technologies can quickly leverage potential. André Käber shows what a holistic solution model for a supply chain network for reusable transport packaging might look like.

This is how inbound management works today: Transparency, process control and cost reduction thanks to intelligent collaboration with suppliers and forwarders

Everyone is talking about supply chain resilience - but this is often equated with real-time visibility. For manufacturing companies, understanding influences on their supply chain - from suppliers to customers - is critical. A resilient supply chain means that it responds, persists and adapts to change as part of its execution. Supplier management in particular offers a lot of potential to stabilize inbound processes and make them more economical through close collaboration and transparency. Michael Rölli talks real use cases to show how processes in inbound management can be adapted and actively controlled based on transparency-promoting collaboration options with suppliers and carriers through the use of digital communication channels, real-time data and slot bookings - and what cost-saving potential this has to offer.

Why MFC? A brief outline of Micro Fulfillment in the food sector and the regional specifics.

Micro Fulfillment is a smart and efficient solution for retailers and their last mile delivery - especially in cities where space is limited and expensive. MFCs enable retailers to be highly dynamic in their order processing: goods can be picked the same day the order is placed, ready for immediate pickup by the customer, or delivered directly to the customer's door. Mirco Fulfillment is emerging as a solution for online grocery in some parts of the world. But is it really a universal solution for the world's (major) cities? Or do regional differences - for example in terms of (shopping) culture, infrastructure and demographics - have an impact on the concept of micro fulfillment?

Container Management in Transformation - The Way to a Holistic Supply Chain Network for Reusable Transport Packaging!

Logistical cycles have always been the focus of attention when it comes to increasing efficiency and sustainability. In this context, reusable transport packaging and loading equipment, as constants in the flow of materials and production, are the central link of logistical functions. It always gets expensive when containers are missing or overstocks are penalized with high costs. Many companies are currently faced with the challenges of mapping container debts transparently and comprehensibly, optimizing cycles in terms of demand and availability, and reducing disposable packaging materials. Closer integration of all process participants, more transparent processes in real time, and intelligent identification technologies can quickly leverage potential. André Käber shows what a holistic solution model for a supply chain network for reusable transport packaging might look like.

Digitalisation potential of your existing intralogistics system.

In many cases, intralogistics systems consist of customised special systems, each of which represent a unique material flow. These individual process chains can represent decisive competitive advantages in the market and are thus among the essential infrastructures of the companies. It is therefore all the more important to match the performance of these intralogistics systems with the current technical possibilities.

Our experience is that the great technological progress in the field of mechanical engineering in recent years is increasingly being countered by installed technology that is getting on in years. Operators risk decreasing plant availability and leave considerable savings potential unused.

In my keynote speech, I will show you the extensive potential offered by a RetroFit and the high degree of digitalisation we can realise with it.

    Changing course in our minds: Only a holistic circular economy is sustainable

    Thesen am Tresen – The STILL Logistics Talk Circularity
    Everyone is talking about sustainability. And some companies are involved in a verbal race to meet deadlines in terms of climate neutrality. But behind the scenes things often look sad. Changes are made only to what doesn't hurt, savings are made only to what can be implemented quickly, and praise is sung for the purchase of certificates, which, however, is viewed critically by experts. Instead, their credo is: if you want to get serious about the topic, you have to act according to the principles of the holistic circular economy - anything else is green washing. Smart companies in the logistics sector have put circularity at the top of their agenda. They think holistically - from product design, through the supply chain, production and customer use, to recycling. Key questions in this context are: How can developers design better solutions? How do supply chains need to be redesigned? How can the customer use the product more sustainably? And how can it be given a second life? These are just a few of the many questions that experts will discuss.

    Thesen am Tresen – The STILL Logistics Talk Automation
    The trends in intralogistics have rarely been clearer: electrification, automation and digitalisation are the big topics of the moment. Nearly all companies will invest in these areas over the next twelve months - and no longer just on greenfield sites. Brownfield is the trend.

    The fact is: all technologies are readily available; the entry threshold for AGVs, robotics & Co. is falling rapidly. At the same time, a lack of skilled workers and rising wages are massively increasing the automation pressure for existing warehouse facilities. Is this the beginning of a technological change in logistics? Or will automation remain something only for the top ten thousand? Which new answers and offers do brownfield solutions require? And what is the role of RoI in the field of tension between man and machine? Experts discuss provocative theses and show how companies can automate properly.

    Megatrends such as digitalisation, "new work" or the transformation of the supply chain are changing the logistics industry lastingly and extreme quickly. Especially in recent years, technical and entrepreneurial progress has been accompanied by a steady stream of new and more complex risks - without the "classic" risks disappearing.

    But how do you recognise new risks? And how can you best protect yourself against them? Risk managers and insurance brokers like SCHUNCK are already thinking ahead , constantly working on the protection of existing and future risks.

    These challenges do not only entail risks, but above all offer opportunities. Digital contract management and claims reporting are just the beginning. With new digital solutions, we make it even easier for our customers to take out insurance, even in complex risk situations - e.g. with our completely digital application section for cyber insurance.

    Shrinking growth in e-commerce, declining willingness to take risks among investors and banks, interrupted supply chains due to pandemics and war - or simply a traffic jam in the Panama Canal.

    In the past three years the demands on the supply chain have changed significantly and the decision to invest in an automation solution has become more difficult. If you want to be competitive in the future you have to be able to face rapidly changing markets and adapt your infrastructure accordingly.

    In this presentation you will learn when conventional automation reaches its limitation and why new revolutionary solutions like “e.scala” supports you to make your supply chain more resilient.

    13:30 Masterclass storelogix by common solutions

    Due to the rapid development of digitalization, companies increasingly rely on existing warehouse management systems. A standard solution which does not have to be individually developed is often desired.
    Starting from their individual processes, project managers often formulate very specific requirements for existing software solutions. As a result, they repeatedly lose themselves in time-consuming and cost-intensive individual projects and miss the opportunity to build on a flexible WMS.
    But who actually says that the processes in companies are so unique? And why is there a risk of drifting into individual projects, even though a standard solution was required? Maybe the approach is not the right one?
    Find out in this presentation why it is time to rethink the selection process for WMS systems. What you should look out for in existing solutions and what new opportunities and possibilities this opens up for companies.

    14:45 Labour shortage, fluctuating demand, and a space shortage: The case for building better, not bigger.

    AI-powered robots for piece-picking are leading the way in the recent wave of automation in warehouses. With rising costs and low availability of labour, the next generation of robots, powered by AI, help handle the dynamic and unpredictable market demands by automating previously manual tasks. They can handle virtually an infinite variety of shapes and sizes of items found in modern warehouses, in unstructured environments... something traditional automation has not been able to handle.

    In this presentation we will answer the following questions:
    • What are the challenges of robotics in logistics?
    • How do our customers use AI robotics?
    • How can a Robot-as-a-Service model lower the risk of introducing AI robotics to your warehouse?

Changing course in our minds: Only a holistic circular economy is sustainable

Thesen am Tresen – The STILL Logistics Talk Circularity
Everyone is talking about sustainability. And some companies are involved in a verbal race to meet deadlines in terms of climate neutrality. But behind the scenes things often look sad. Changes are made only to what doesn't hurt, savings are made only to what can be implemented quickly, and praise is sung for the purchase of certificates, which, however, is viewed critically by experts. Instead, their credo is: if you want to get serious about the topic, you have to act according to the principles of the holistic circular economy - anything else is green washing. Smart companies in the logistics sector have put circularity at the top of their agenda. They think holistically - from product design, through the supply chain, production and customer use, to recycling. Key questions in this context are: How can developers design better solutions? How do supply chains need to be redesigned? How can the customer use the product more sustainably? And how can it be given a second life? These are just a few of the many questions that experts will discuss.

3 approaches for more sustainability in warehouse logistics

Research proves, that sustainability is not just a buzzword, but a criteria increasingly considered in purchasing decisions. Reacting to that and/or moticated intrinsically, more and more companies incorporate sustainability and social responsibility into their corporate strategy. How logistics can contribute to more sustainability is a discussion that could fill several evenings. Since AutoStore is known for speed and efficiency, Jakob Josten does not need more than 15 minutes to present 3 approaches - and prefers to have a drink at the bar with you in the evening.

1000 orders - one invoice - one partner. JITpay™, new ways in logistics billing.

LEANER PROCESSES, INCREASED FLEXIBILITY AND IMPROVED ACCESS TO CARRIERS

JITpay™ digitizes and bundles the billing processes in logistics. Within the scope of central accounting (ZAL®), JITpay™ takes over the accounting of all logistics costs for the shippers and summarizes them in only one invoice, e.g. monthly.

Central settlement combines JITpay™ with factoring, which enables immediate payment of the carriers/shippers as well as flexible payment terms for the shipper. This gives the shipper access to much more transport capacity and allows them to bill and pay their forwarders/transport operators via JITpay™ in a fully transparent and performance-based manner.

Thesen am Tresen – The STILL Logistics Talk Automation
The trends in intralogistics have rarely been clearer: electrification, automation and digitalisation are the big topics of the moment. Nearly all companies will invest in these areas over the next twelve months - and no longer just on greenfield sites. Brownfield is the trend.

The fact is: all technologies are readily available; the entry threshold for AGVs, robotics & Co. is falling rapidly. At the same time, a lack of skilled workers and rising wages are massively increasing the automation pressure for existing warehouse facilities. Is this the beginning of a technological change in logistics? Or will automation remain something only for the top ten thousand? Which new answers and offers do brownfield solutions require? And what is the role of RoI in the field of tension between man and machine? Experts discuss provocative theses and show how companies can automate properly.

How Collaboration in logistics will lead to Next Level  End-to-End Visibility 

Today’s logistic value chains need accurate information about the goods all the way from the sender to the final receiver. To create that information a large number of different IT solutions defines, generate, distribute and interpret the information. Unfortunately, there is no world standard that governs the information flow and large integrated systems as well as small stand-alone solutions are installed to try to meet the needs without much coordination or collaboration

Digital Colleagues - The AI and Human Collaboration Revolution

Digitization in the supply chain is advancing rapidly, and humans often struggle to keep up with these dynamic streams of complex data. In addition, unexpected events disrupt entire supply chains and are constantly causing new and unforeseen challenges. Such disruptive changes make collaboration with conventional software solutions much more difficult.

In his presentation, Dr David Arfmann shows a smart way for people to work together with Digital Colleagues, thus creating a hybrid learning organization in which humans and machines significantly improve their performance together. This smart way is adapted to the dynamic realities in businesses and supply chains, as a digital colleague learns on the job, instead of being programmed elsewhere. The dictum is: Boosting performance through collaboration with Digital Colleagues #machineslearningALAIQhumans

"Make it simple“ - efficiently hedging current and future risks in logistics

Megatrends such as digitalisation, "new work" or the transformation of the supply chain are changing the logistics industry lastingly and extreme quickly. Especially in recent years, technical and entrepreneurial progress has been accompanied by a steady stream of new and more complex risks - without the "classic" risks disappearing.

But how do you recognise new risks? And how can you best protect yourself against them? Risk managers and insurance brokers like SCHUNCK are already thinking ahead , constantly working on the protection of existing and future risks.

These challenges do not only entail risks, but above all offer opportunities. Digital contract management and claims reporting are just the beginning. With new digital solutions, we make it even easier for our customers to take out insurance, even in complex risk situations - e.g. with our completely digital application section for cyber insurance.

The future of automation is called flexibility – a simple solution for volatile times

Shrinking growth in e-commerce, declining willingness to take risks among investors and banks, interrupted supply chains due to pandemics and war - or simply a traffic jam in the Panama Canal.

In the past three years the demands on the supply chain have changed significantly and the decision to invest in an automation solution has become more difficult. If you want to be competitive in the future you have to be able to face rapidly changing markets and adapt your infrastructure accordingly.

In this presentation you will learn when conventional automation reaches its limitation and why new revolutionary solutions like “e.scala” supports you to make your supply chain more resilient.

Masterclass storelogix by common solutions

Due to the rapid development of digitalization, companies increasingly rely on existing warehouse management systems. A standard solution which does not have to be individually developed is often desired.
Starting from their individual processes, project managers often formulate very specific requirements for existing software solutions. As a result, they repeatedly lose themselves in time-consuming and cost-intensive individual projects and miss the opportunity to build on a flexible WMS.
But who actually says that the processes in companies are so unique? And why is there a risk of drifting into individual projects, even though a standard solution was required? Maybe the approach is not the right one?
Find out in this presentation why it is time to rethink the selection process for WMS systems. What you should look out for in existing solutions and what new opportunities and possibilities this opens up for companies.
