Automation has transformed traditional distribution systems into the smart distribution systems (SDSs) of the future. The availability of data and remote-control capability in SDSs provides distribution operators with an opportunity to optimize system operation and control.
So, what do we mean by Automation Integration? Automation focuses on reducing or eliminating labor costs by creating a process with a single data entry. Integration, on the other hand, manages the handing off of data from one software to another. Both are integral to the efficiency of the distribution center.
The distribution center is the interface between producer and customer. Automated distribution centers offer significant advantages: they are more space-saving, flexible, resource-efficient, process secure, cost-effective, and reliable. This increases the effectiveness of distribution, even in multi-channel retailing.
