Automation in the Warehouse

How are robots and other automated systems changing our warehouses? What do successful logistics managers use today and which hype can we do without?

Control over data and partner networks in times of rapid digitalization of the industry.

The supply chain is becoming increasingly digital. Shipping agents are demanding transparent transport processes. Forwarders and logistics providers are forced to become part of the networked ecosystem and share data in order to remain competitive. It is clear that this new transparency creates enormous potential on both sides, however, all entrepreneurs should be aware of the scope of data sharing and implement solutions that promote and do not threaten their core business.

NIC-place offers software solutions for the transport and logistics industry. We are the market leader in temperature-controlled and high-value transports, as well as in rail logistics, and we are known for our deep, well-founded knowledge of telematics. NIC-place allows entrepreneurs to enjoy the benefits of sharing data along the supply chain without losing control of their personal network.

Put an end to pen and paper - this is how digitalisation and automatic tour optimisation works today! Even directly in your IT environment.

Integrated and in real time - I will show you how to solve the daily optimisation tasks in transport and logistics even more efficiently. Learn from practical examples how digitisation of processes, which are often still done manually, succeeds and additionally offers opportunities for savings and improvements.

How augmented reality, AI and prescriptive analytics are changing the world of logistics

In today's world, the demands on transport and logistics companies are higher than ever before. Employees are under increased pressure, compliance is complex, and customers expect prompt service and information without delays. Zebra's solutions, developed in partnership with our customers, have succeeded in meeting these demands, for example:

  • Fulfilment Edge has the real-time intelligence and visibility to shorten picking routes and modernise equipment interfaces with minimal effort. It identifies who is closest to each item and automatically provides easy-to-understand instructions to make the most of each worker's movements.
  • Gain visibility into the loading status of your vehicles with Zebra's SmartPack™ Trailer. This solution improves loading operations by capturing real-time 3D data (e.g., load density, load quality), providing companies with deeper insights for the highest possible performance and profitability.
  • Prescriptive analytics provide information on what needs to be done for a certain event to occur. To be precise, these solutions reduce unplanned downtime, for example, by fully automatically providing employees with specific instructions for action. As a result, the operational risk is reduced.
  • With Zebra's yard management solution, you can reduce waiting times and increase performance using real-time location to identify, prioritise and track every trailer or container on your premises.

Logistics Summit Startup Awards, part 1

Here you can see innovative startups presenting their clever new solutions in logistics. The best three will receive a Logistics Summit Startup Award – you decide!

Logistics and logistics facilities:
The lifeline of our changing economy.

How both can perfectly optimise your value creation in the future.

The Logistics and Logistics Facilities masterclass introduces you to the key drivers and megatrends that are currently impacting our economy and society. What are their effects and how can we best react to them? We will show you the political and market environment that we need to prepare for, as well as what measures and strategies will help us to prepare for it in the best possible way. One thing is certain – it is becoming increasingly important that we can act more flexibly and in line with the market. GARBE Industrial Real Estate is here to support you.

Innovative logistics processes in SAP S/4HANA, for your intelligent company

In the past, we have been able to experience impressively how quickly the digital transformation has caught up with us all. Fortunately, we were also able to observe how agile companies reacted to it and what advantages resulted from it. Complete processes, many new products and services, and in some cases entire industries were adapted to the given situation in a very short time.

SAP offers its customers a platform for precisely this constant change, which makes it possible to react flexibly to all challenges, especially in our current situation – but also beyond. For example, when implementing SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), new processes and functions can be established that bring a decisive competitive advantage. Especially when processes in EWM are connected together with an S/4HANA system, there are many opportunities to optimize them and form the platform for intelligent logistics. These include, for example, appealing dashboards for a 360-degree overview and solutions such as SAP Warehouse Insights for the automated optimization of routes and warehouse processes.

In his MasterClass, Carsten Manske reveals which innovative logistics processes are waiting for you in an SAP system landscape and how they help you implement an intelligent and future-proof logistics strategy.

Logistics leaders’ panel

Logistics chiefs from leading companies discuss the current challenges in their respective industries.

"easy.external.storage"

External storage means high fixed costs, no flexibility and expensive compromises when it comes to IT integration. What synergies are offered by online platforms to bring together supply and demand in a flexible and needs-based way? How can seasonality and production overflows in the warehousing business be balanced out so that warehouse operators can avoid having empty space and use their storage locations more economically? SpaceFill's business model enables companies in the industry to access external, IT-integrated storage spaces in a flexible, needs-based way without high fixed costs.

RetroFit vs. New System - a second life for your intralogistics system

Many automated warehouse systems have been operating tirelessly for a long period of time. They perform an indispensable key function for the material flow in the company. Uninterrupted operation is an essential component of economic success and availability is one of the performance indicators for companies. Older intralogistics systems confront companies with challenges such as decreasing availability. Especially when downtimes occur as a result of outdated control technology, the risk becomes visible due to discontinued components. Many operators therefore have to deal with the question of whether the use of new plant components or a planned modernization is an option for them in the long term. Both options contain opportunities and risks. The professional evaluation has to be made individually for each plant and each operator.

22 years in the project business vs. 1 year in the project business – rethinking complex warehouse management

Do you use your TV or a streaming provider for films and series? Do you listen to music on a CD or do you start your playlist with a single click of a music streaming service? Do you still take photos on camera film or digitally? Do you use a classic software solution for complex warehouse management, or do you rely on "Software as a Service"?

The classic approach to warehousing and the project business is no longer up to date, with its time-consuming creation of specifications and requirements. Even complex warehouse management can be rethought – for example, with storelogix.
The warehouse management system follows a project approach and the basic idea of standardising logistical processes. This allows you to implement a warehouse management system for complex warehouses in only 6 weeks, guaranteed. In doing so, even the flexibility necessary for future requirements can be thought of directly, so that new requirements can be implemented in live operation while the system is in use.
Holger Meinen, managing partner of common solutions and responsible for storelogix, was himself active in the project business for leading WMS companies for 22 years. However, he is convinced that storelogix and "Software as a Service" can create a sustainable change in the industry and warehouse management. Find out how it works and become part of a surprising progress report!

It’s not about smart AGV. It’s about making smart AGV-based automation.

AGV-based automation offers flexible, future-oriented process automation for logistics and production logistics. Dynamic, scalable, space-saving.

The introduction of smart AGVs alone does not always lead to high benefits. In a complex, demanding environment, comprehensive integration of AGVs into processes is required.

movizon's masterclass ranges from what is possible today to what is imaginable in the future. The presentation outlines a path, beginning with a possible entry into the technology and supports all future development and expansion stages. Flexible. Scalable. Investment-proof.
