Summary

Warehouse Automation

There are significant cost and service pressures in B2C and B2B fulfillment, in the face of severe labor shortages and customer expectations. The answer: software and hardware automation, as we move into the “smart” warehouse era, where many tasks and decision that used to require human decision-making are now automatically performed by the Warehouse Management System. 

In this session, you’ll learn how optimization, orchestration and simulation are changing the game in distribution, and how newer Warehouse Execution Systems (WES) with WMS or standalone are turbocharging performance in automated and non-automated DCs.

The Supply Chain Network (SCN) Summit is the premier virtual event aimed at educating logistics professionals on critical issues impacting the supply chain industry.

Hear from industry experts, as they discuss trends, technologies, challenges and opportunities revolving around warehousing, transportation, sustainability, procurement, emerging technologies, workforce development, risk management and more.
