As the volume of global shipments continues to rise, logistics companies are facing increasing pressure to get more goods loaded faster, more efficiently and at a lower cost. To over come challenges, logistics companies are automating their operations and leveraging new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), mobility and cloud computing to heighten visibility and ultimately revolutionise business processes.
According to the white paper from Zebra which you can download from here, transportation and labour account for 70% of total supply chain costs. Also that customers have redefined expectations of 'fast shipping' from 3 to 4 days to within 2 days.
With implementing systems such as Warehouse Management Solution (WMS), companies are gaining new visibility into their dock and loading operations and using it to optimise critical processes. In The RIC Group's WMS our Load Truck feature is now starting to expand its capability and help load runs more efficiently. Also with The RIC Group's WMS there is now integration to scales from Wedderburn which dimension cartons electronically.
