Globalisation and the integration of supply chains across borders and continents resulted in the rapid growth of the Logistics and Supply Chain industry. Its significance in global trade was evident during the pandemic. When supply chains were disrupted, and businesses suffered due to the breakdown in worldwide logistics and transport services, it was evident that the industry had become the lifeblood of global business. Variability/unpredictability in global demand makes it impossible to match production capacity with market requirements. Therefore, an efficient warehouse is of paramount importance to all organisations, irrespective of their size. An efficient intralogistics solution within the warehouse is imperative and having a reliable partner is critical to meeting customer needs in a timely manner.
Multinationals and large organisations are increasingly outsourcing warehousing facilities to facilitate growth in supply chain volumes. A majority of the local businesses are increasingly searching for high-efficiency warehousing solutions in the wake of COVID-19, due to low human resource availability and social distancing challenges. While manufacturers may still choose have to maintain in-house option.
