E-Commerce

Businesses are facing an unprecedented change in the demands and challenges of today’s e-commerce explosion. Growth trends, business channels, and market competitors are considerably different than 5 years ago and will only continue to change. More than half of our customers reported that demands have intensified dramatically during the past 24 months and have concerns about their ability to respond to these intensifying challenges. 
Third-party logistics (3PL) providers in the fulfillment sector face many of the same market challenges as their retail customers — and the growing shortage of available labor is at the top of this list. In the past, 3PLs have simply scaled up their workforce to meet service contracts. But to meet e-commerce requirements, they’ll need new strategies that aren’t as dependent on adding labor. As a result, many are accelerating their transitions to automation and digital technologies. 
To meet SLAs without cutting into profit margins, managers need to be able to quickly identify underperforming labor resources and process bottlenecks. So, how do you do that? Our experts have identified 10 simple ways companies like yours can identify operational inefficiencies and address them before they impact the bottom line.
In the past few years, we’ve witnessed a digital transformation taking place in a variety of industrial sectors, and distribution and fulfilment is no exception. E-commerce pressures are driving retailers, wholesalers and third-party logistics providers to accelerate their evolution to more digital, automated business operations and fulfillment processes. 

Market Research Reveals Impacts to Distribution and Fulfillment Operations 

The relentless march of e-commerce continues to put tremendous strains on distribution and fulfillment operations. Honeywell Intelligrated, in collaboration with Modern Materials Handling and the Peerless Research Group (PRG), recently surveyed 171 U.S.-based material handling executives to understand how their respective companies are managing in lieu of e-commerce pressures.

In the past few years, there’s been a lot of talk about the digital transformation taking place in a variety of industrial sectors. Technologies like robotics, automation, data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence are no longer part of some faraway future, but the very tools many companies are integrating into their daily business practices today. Not only is this evolution helping companies deliver consistently exceptional customer experiences, it’s also introducing solutions to traditional challenges while ushering in a new era of process efficiencies.

Modern warehouse execution systems (WES) address these escalating complexities by providing intelligent, dynamic allocation based on man, machine and workstation availabilities.
