How to bridge the labour gap with smart robotics
Globally, warehouses and distribution centres (DCs) are increasingly facing shortages of skilled workers. This is challenging their ability to meet the complex demands of the logistics sector and support the anticipated growth levels. How can smart robotics help to tackle these challenges?
Taking (remote) control
Parcel companies are looking for smarter ways to manage, maintain and optimise their one critical system and network as a whole. The Operations Control Centre (OCC) can help with live, transparent and pro-active performance monitoring, executed remotely and available 24/7.
The hidden world of returns
Since the explosion of e-commerce, modern consumers have benefitted from the returns policies offered by retailers. This puts a lot of stress on the processes in a distribution centre. How can e-tailers turn their return process into a key differentiator in the creation of loyal customers?
Understanding the dynamics of the food supply chain
Social and business trends have a big influence on the food supply chain. Changes in shopping behaviour can force retailers to rethink their business models and retail networks. What do food retailers need to do to stay competitive?
Pick Of The Bunch
If you are involved in the food retail industry, you will know that it’s in a constant state of flux. That’s because consumers continue to demand fresh, high-quality products and an excellent service. But how to offer full shelves to your customers, when at the same time you have to deal with the challenge of labour scarcity?
From ‘push’ to ‘pull’: How consumer demand changed the supply chain
E-commerce is evolving from a push to a pull orientated supply chain. Consumers demand more control over delivery times and locations. What does this mean for operations within warehouses and parcel centres? How can they fulfill the customers' wishes?
Taking The Load Off
There’s an increasing pressure on airports to maintain high performance levels when it comes to baggage. Creating a safe, ergonomic environment for staff is also high on the agenda. Vanderlande has developed an aid to take the load off for baggage handlers.
Survival of the fastest?
Can you imagine ordering your products online and receiving them within 30 minutes? It’s not beyond the realms of possibility in today’s e-commerce world.
Gravity is a harsh mistress
In his previous blog, Merijn Buitelaar told us about his three pillars of safety: awareness; behaviour;and leadership.In his new article, he talks from personal experience on behaviour.
Changing the game for loose loads
In today’s parcel market, larger volumes, next- and same-day deliveries, timeslot- and location-specific deliveries, as well as a higher diversity of goods are generating fresh challenges for parcel operators. Will AGVs and robotics be the game changer for loose loads?
Seven factors to consider when designing the ideal e-commerce warehouse
Seasonal peaks, consumer demand and labour scarcity. These are just some of the drivers that influence modern warehouse operations. In this blog, we discuss seven key factors that you should take into account when designing your ideal e-commerce distribution centre.
The advantages of remote screening through a wide area network
Airports continue to respond to ever-increasing requirements for increased security. It require airports to adapt to new regulations, and make constant changes to security procedures and processes to combat potential threats. How can remote screening through a wide area network help?
How to future-proof the parcel market
In an age of high demand and instant access, it’s impossible to imagine a world without e-commerce. Expectations for rapid deliveries have become embedded in the way consumers think about products and services. How can this be facilitated?
Process engineering points to the future
Process engineers aim to continuously optimise system performance and operational processes in material handling operations. One of the latest data science methodologies we use for this is ‘process mining’. Special algorithms are applied to event data recorded by any information system in order to identify trends and patterns. But why has it become such a hot topic for the logistics sector?
An Extended Remit
For parcel operators, a smooth operation while unloading goods is crucial. That’s why – at Vanderlande Santpedor – we’ve been developing a state-of-the-art telescopic conveyor. This is set to maximise the effectiveness of this stage of the parcel handling process.
Home shopping meets intralogistics
Looking back at Christmas sales from 2016, one thing is clear: bricks-and-mortar retail has remained static while e-commerce continues to grow. Could integrated omni-channel distribution centres (DCs) be the ideal solution to support all channels?
Scaling new heights
As parcel companies extend their operations, the requirement for cross-belt sorters also increases. To maximise space utilisation, these sorters are commonly stacked on top of each other. They are also extending, and the need to maintain and operate this equipment safely is growing in parallel. A new maintenance solution - both quickly and safely - is imperative. That's why Vanderlande introduces SERVICECART@EASE.
Supply Takes On Demand
Store-friendly deliveries are the ideal solution for food retailers to cope with a higher frequency of stock replenishments during busy shopping periods. But how do DCs make their deliveries store-friendly?
Three pillars of safety at work
Working in a technical environment at airports, in warehouses and in the parcel industry often means working with equipment at height and being confronted with unexpected situations. Therefore, working safely is of the utmost importance… for everyone! Merijn Buitelaar tells us about his three pillars of safety, and how we can all benefit from embracing our ‘inner samurai’
Rise of the machines?
How big is robotics going to be in the parcel sector in 20 years? What will smart data bring us? And what does further automation look like? Rob Qualm, Market Director Parcel, looks ahead and foresees 3 trends for the future of the parcel industry.
Small but mighty
The continued growth of e-commerce is having a significant impact on parcel companies, like a higher volume of smaller sized consignments (‘smalls’). The quantity of smalls is even predicted to increase further in the future. What can parcel companies do to be prepared for this?
Does robotics point the way forward for food retailers?
In the food industry of today, consumer expectations are at an all-time high. Online shopping habits are fuelling the expansion of distribution centres. At the same time the available workforce is shrinking and labour costs are rising. How can we use technology to overcome these challenges?
E-commerce: the future in our hands
How can we predict the unpredictable when it comes to e-commerce? If anyone can offer an insight, it’s Vanderlande’s resident expert (and Channel Director E-Commerce) Ruben Jakobs.
Diversity in store layouts leads to additional logistics costs in both the distribution centre and the store itself. Doesn’t it?
When was the last time you watched shelves being stacked at your local store? You would probably imagine that this is a streamlined operation, with staff poised for trucks to arrive so they can bring pallets of goods straight into the store. In addition, you may expect pallets to be loaded logically so that shelf stackers can avoid crisscrossing the entire store, getting in the way of customers.
