Revolutionizing Warehousing through Digitization
“The single biggest benefit to warehouse automation is accuracy! Speed is helpful, optimization on resources is welcome, but accuracy in a warehousing business is paramount.” – Jan Bednar, CEO of ShipMonk
- Are your customers experiencing a delay in receiving their orders due to limited workforce?
- Are you experiencing a decline in the order fulfillment capacity?
- Do you have accurate inventory counts?
- Are you still using spreadsheets for inventory management?
- Do you identify problems in your supply chain with customer satisfaction data?
These are some of the questions freight forwarders are constantly plagued with.
Warehouse automations are gaining a foothold in the ever-changing scenario of logistic businesses and carries an excellent potential for delivering enhanced user experiences.
Automating and optimizing warehouse operations are not a same-size-fits-all process. Every asset management team requires a strategic, custom-designed plan that suits their needs and techniques.
We are pleased to announce that we are an official business partner of Microlistics.

The biggest challenges in warehousing right now:
Accidental redundancy, messy warehouse layout, bad inventory management, excessive spending on labour and poor damage control, are some of the challenges that can derail your warehouse operations.
According to a report by McKinsey & Company in 2019, about £300 billion (approximately $385 billion) is spent each year, worldwide, on overall warehousing costs.
“When operations upgrade their pick & inventory systems from paper-and-pencil to a more integrated form of order processing, they enjoy on average a 25% gain in overall productivity, a 10-20% gain in space use, and 15-30% more efficient use of stock.”
