Digital Logistics and Supply Chain

How innovative technologies drive change

Situations such as the current crisis often lead to creative ideas in companies: For example, in order to enable employees from production and the shipping area to work together without direct contact. In the ARENA2036 research camp, face shields, for example, are manufactured on 3D printers and then transported to the shipping area with driverless transport vehicles (FTF). There are already some scenarios like this – however, very few companies use innovative technologies along the entire supply chain. End-to-end digitization and automation, however, lead to greater effectiveness and efficiency and therefore also competitive advantages. And not only in the crisis, but always!

In order to digitize the supply chain end-to-end, we recommend this procedure: Companies create a "map", on which they systematically map all useful application scenarios and the available technologies. It is worth examining the return on investment when deciding on a technology: How much does the innovation cost and how is it profitable? And: Especially for more complex automation scenarios, the gain in flexibility should also always be considered.

In our MHPDeepDive "Digital Logistics and Supply Chain", we present different use cases and technologies: From the voice-controlled commissioning via fleet management software for FTF through to autonomous transport in the outdoor area. We demonstrate the specific advantages using abstract customer examples and simulation videos. We also address the challenges in the introduction of innovations in logistics and describe how you overcome these successfully.

What awaits you in our MHPDeepDive:

  • You obtain an overview of current logistics innovations together with the appropriate technologies.
  • We show you the advantages of the innovations using customer examples and simulation videos.
  • You find out what challenges must be considered in the introduction and how you can overcome these.
