Improve efficiency at logistics centres with 3D mapping and voice navigation June 4th, 2019
Large amounts of packages are received or shipped by logistics centresevery day. The main issue with today’s ever-growing e-commerce is that warehouses need to try and fulfil their services. Especially when 1-day deliveries have become so popular. In conventional warehouses, the warehouse employees need to manually pick every item from the shelf and load it. They also need to try and organise their route around the warehouse to pick all items needed for the day. This can be unproductive, time wasting, and stressful. However, with the use of 3D mapping and voice navigation systems this can change your conventional warehouse into highly efficient logistic centres.
4 Issues that can be solved with 3D mapping and voice navigation systems.
One of the most challenging aspects of the warehouse is to maintainaccuracy. With the huge amount of inbound and outbound processes,a lot of inconsistencyis createdif the right path is not configured.Picking optimisation for warehouses can automate routes, reduce wear and tear on the equipment, and increase productivity.
When it comes to inventory location, withoutsufficientperceptionintolocation, warehouse employees take longer to find the items needed to be shipped, which slows down the whole process and causes delay. This slowsdown operations, creating inefficiencies, and in turn increase costs.3D mapping though will solve these issues in no time!
Sizedoesn’t always matter. It doesn’t matter how much space you have in your warehouse butmost importantly how you areutilizing the space youdohave. When you optimise thespaceyou have you can avoid unnecessary labour, place fast selling stock near the front of the warehouse,which inreturn will reduce time needed to get stock.
Last but not least, meetingcustomer demands. It is not always easy keeping up with the demands of customers. With 3D mappingyoucan improve the order in what item is picked up, making sure that the orders that need to be sent out first can be without causing disruptions to the workflow.
