Top 10 Warehouse Management Consulting/Services Companies - 2020

With evolving logistic demands, the use of WMS has increased. From embedded WMS in ERP to cloud based applications, there are hundreds of technologies and today, warehouse managers have many options to choose from.

However, a major portion of warehousing activities and processes around the industry are still carried out manually. But with the onset of certain remarkable technologies such as cloud software, virtual and augmented reality, robots, IoT, and of course wearable devices have brought about a tremendous transition in the warehousing arena. Soon, artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, and big data are going to make a huge shift in the way warehousing processes work at present.

The thought that the warehousing industry will be bustling with drones and robots seemed like a near-impossible idea few years back. With changing times

drones and robots monitoring warehouse activities have become a reality. It's almost unimaginable to carry out the day-to-day work within the warehouses without the help of such technologies. By integrating voice technology with the WMS, warehouse operators will able to interact with the WMS with the help of an internet connection and headset. Mobile technology has become an inseparable part of our lives, but the technology and its various forms have diverse uses inside the warehouse.

Our goal with this edition is to feature such warehouse management solution and service providers who are at the forefront of revolutionizing the space through their top-notch technology. We hope this issue of the Logistics Tech Outlook helps you build the partnership you and your firm need to foster technologically-driven supply chain processes.
