Optimizing your footprint while handling smalls
The growth of the e-commerce sector continues to have a significant impact on the industry. Not only must rapid deliveries and later cut-off times be factored in, but the quantity of small parcels has significantly increased. With the now universal labor shortages and with real estate at a prime, parcel companies have to increase their capacity while accommodating various parcel sizes, optimizing their facilities’ footprint and reducing their dependency on labor. Adam will discuss how facilities can be optimized through automation and will share Vanderlande’s vision for the future of parcel handling.
