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.
