We learned a lot during the COVID-19, but one of the important lessons is the firsthand experience that the supply chain industry was affected by the pandemic in a short period. And companies have to be agile and adept enough to react quickly.
Businesses are working rapidly to adapt to the new normal and overcome these challenges from the pandemic, but having difficulties without the tools needed to adjust to disruptions in real-time.
In a survey conducted by Honeywell and KRC Research, 51% percent of employees at companies that directly manage warehouses, distribution centers, or fulfillment centers say the coronavirus pandemic has made their company more willing to invest in automation.
"We didn’t foresee a global pandemic, but we saw a need for companies
to have deep visibility into their supply chains with the ability
to optimize results in real-time."
-XPO CIO Mario Harik
The pandemic has proven the crucial need for automation due to increased demand, concerns about the health and safety of workers, and traceability and safety of products and services. Automating part or all of the supply chain has many potential benefits for companies, including reducing manual effort while increasing productivity, efficiency, and accuracy.
The Power of Supply Chain Automation
1.Digitized Supply Chain
Businesses that are ready to embrace automation ensures that core delivery processes like job allocation, scheduling, real-time tracking do not need any manual intervention. Automating time-consuming tasks and processes is a proven way to reduce costs, ensure the safety of employees, and deliver employee-based savings.
