Operational costs in the logistics sector have risen considerably in recent years, leaving efficiency gains as the only means of staying competitive, especially in the more recurrent, lower value-added tasks that require less human intervention. The automation of these warehouse tasks is key to addressing the challenges of the sector: reducing the cost tonne per kilometre transport cost and maximising service to respond to customer demands without incurring high inventory costs. To meet these challenges, there are solutions and technologies that facilitate the digitisation and automation of logistics centres. First, the industry must address the transformation of its communications to achieve flexible environments that connect assets, machines, systems and people, thus bridging IT and OT needs. Second, regarding this connectivity, we consider the following warehouse automation solutions to be essential: autonomous transport, the tracking of machinery or tools, loading and personnel within the logistics environment, and automated shelf picking and stocktaking.
