Integrating automated systems into a Smart Warehouse offers a large amount of real-time operational data for monitoring and managing the warehouse. It provides an opportunity to cross reference and link this data to give yourself a holistic view of your operation. In addition, there is the potential to view your complete supply chain from incoming delivery to final destination at the customers’ premises.

Smart sensor technology enables you to monitor and analyse your warehouse’s indoor and outdoor locations and the activity of your mobile assets such as forklifts, pallet trucks, automated guided vehicles (AGV), roll cages, pallets, containers, tools, and operators.You can view and act upon this information to improve both the efficiency and safety of your operations.
