In fact, today it is necessary to innovate in order to respond to the commercial strategies and end customer requests: a constantly evolving scenario. It is necessary to know how to choose the appropriate tech solutions to ensure accessibility to key information in support to the decision-making process.

Logistics 4.0 needs

Both in the case of external logistics (namely third-party Logistics or 3PL) and in the case of internal logistics (the industrial one), this challenge gives the company the need for a complete processes rethinking in line with the Lean Production and the Just in Time approach.

Not only is today’s innovation technological, but structural and systemic too.

A company indeed needs to:

  • Optimize processes, simplifying work methods and adding flexibility
  • Reduce time and errors and, therefore, costs
  • Minimize materials stocks by rationalizing the warehouse spaces
  • Track freight movement
  • Make picking and goods delivery times optimal
  • Measure operations flows and times in order to identify bottlenecks
