Supply chain, logistics and warehousing play an indispensable role in the transportation of goods across the country. It is one of the most important constituent, cost-eff ective resources which defines the economy and GDP of the country. It is the fulcrum for procurement, manufacturing and distribution services which collectively build robust economies.
Gone are the days when warehouses were dark and dingy, and the transport system entirely depended on drivers, roads and seasons. Today, with the help of technology and digitalisation, the industry has been totally revamped. With robotics, temperature controlled multi-story smart warehouses, assisted by Big data, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Logistics, self-driving vehicles, 3D printing, anticipatory shipping and drones, the industry has – to an extent – everything it needs to serve retailers and customers in a highlyadvanced manner.
