Promote Safety and Productivity in DC Environments
Conducting business during the coronavirus pandemic has brought heightened scrutiny to operational safety and accelerated the adoption of e-commerce fulﬁllment models. In just a few months, the distribution and fulfillment (D&F) landscape has changed considerably. E-commerce growth accelerated four to six years faster than anticipated, investments in automation and robotics are expected to rise, personal protective equipment is now a necessity, and contactless technologies are preferred to prevent cross-contamination.
As a result of these changes, distribution center (DC) managers across all retail sectors are implementing new protocols, workstreams and automation technologies to improve workplace safety and adapt to increased order volumes. Robotic integration, voice-enabled technologies and micro-fulfillment strategies are just a few of the solutions helping managers to optimize their operations as order volumes spike.
