Recent studies show that supply chains models are adapting in accordance with modern technology. According to the 2015 MHI Annual Industry Report on supply chain innovation, facilities are still struggling to boost productivity without raising costs. Fortunately, the new supply chains are faster and more intelligent than ever before.
Benefits of Going Automated
One of the best reasons to update to automatic, connected supply chains is that they allow warehouse owners to keep track of inventory at all times. Not only do new sensors allow for real-time tracking, but they also give information on shipping conditions and alert warehouses to any problems. The end result is a reduced need for manual oversight.
Additionally, automated supply chains may reduce the need for expensive warehouse space. Under the new processes, warehouses can source products directly from partners. The new systems also allow for reduced energy usage and offer better service to customers and clients.
