At Ryder, we’ve extensively examined new technologies to determine how they support smart warehouses, and deliver the most value to customers while helping them stay ahead of their competitors. We’ve prioritized, and are using, four types of innovative technologies most applicable to creating and supporting a smart warehouse: Robotics and automation, Sensors and automatic identification tools, Wearable and mobile technology, and Drones.
When implemented correctly, these four technologies solve the 5 key attributes Ryder has identified that define a smart warehouse: Automate where necessary, Remain nimble, Scale instantaneously, Deliver 100 percent real-time visibility, and provide a customer centric experience.
