Update 36: Sustainability, e-commerce, and digitalization
2020 remains a unique year. Many of our daily rituals, both at home and at work, change daily. In retail, for example, the sudden customer shift toward digital channels and e-commerce means brand manufacturers and retailers must quickly adapt and evolve, reinvent themselves, and accelerate or rewrite their strategies. Digital transformation, in general, is having a wide-ranging impact on the business environment, creating both opportunities and challenges. However, Logistics 4.0 is not about fully digitalizing the entire warehouse. It is more about integrating the appropriate amount of digitalization and automation that a specific situation requires. Even in these uncertain times, we must not lose site of our wider priorities. We only have one planet. To raise a voice for sustainable, economically viable, and future-proof material handling solutions, SSI SCHAEFER joined the “50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders” initiative.
How can your supply chain be well-prepared today and in the future while meeting customers’ ever-increasing expectations? Logistics and internal material flow companies must ensure almost 100% delivery capability and loyalty, shortest cycle times and transparency across the supply chain while focusing on sustainability. E-commerce is a key driver for this leveraging the high availability of operational systems to be successful. With this in mind, SSI SCHAEFER develops suitable solutions together with its customers. Combining the latter one’s business know-how and our intralogistics expertise, we realize a sustainable solution that completely fits the customer’s needs now and in the future.
