Video: What’s the Connection Between 3PL WMS, Data, Productivity, and Growth?

    Posted by John Arkontaky on Apr 30, 2019 9:00:00 AM

    Contrary to belief, data alone doesn’t make or break your supply chain operations or business. It’s how you utilize data that makes the difference.

    ContainerWorld, a third-party logistics (3PL) provider in British Columbia, Canada, won more than 90% market share in the beverage and alcohol market. Over 25 years, the company grew its presence to span a large portion of Canada and international freight-forwarding operations. When the 3PL decided to expand deeper in non-alcohol markets, it needed to think differently about its warehouse systems to scale. With the help of its 3PL warehouse management system (WMS) and a willingness to innovate, the logistics services provider was able to add an additional 20% of non-alcohol business to its portfolio.

    For this 3PL company, it all comes back to leveraging data as a catalyst for opportunity.

    Voice beyond picking: a comprehensive look at the utility of voice technology

    Posted by Tailar Kennedy on Jun 27, 2018 11:14:56 AM

    Several decades ago, voice technology got its beginnings in the warehouse as a way to increase productivity and accuracy in the picking process. The basic premise of the technology was that it allowed the workers to move through the warehouse without anything to distract them or tie up their hands- a stark difference from the traditional picking styles of RF scanners and paper. Once warehouses began to realize the benefits of voice they began to expand their use beyond picking, and then beyond the warehouse altogether.

    Voice for your HighJump Warehouse

    Posted by Tailar Kennedy on Nov 17, 2017 7:00:00 AM

    Voice technology helps HighJump WMS users extend their logistics and fulfillment processes. It offers the promise of hands-free, eyes-free, wireless access to the information needed to drive key warehouse processes and has become an important component in the success of many IT strategies.

    Like the traditional RF-based scanners, voice solutions center on a small, wireless mobile device. The difference is that voice delivers instructions verbally through a headset and captures responses using a microphone, eliminating the need to stop, look at a screen, and key in a quantity or scan a barcode. Coupled with a wireless headset, voice users can completely remove the need to have the mobile device on their body, offering even more freedom of mobility compared to traditional RF units.
