What You Will Learn

Preparing for the sustainable and connected warehouse of the future is top of mind for manufacturing and distribution companies alike, but what does it really mean? For most, it starts with a comprehensive look at the entire packaging process flow, including the end packaging line. Automation claims to be the key solution for labor, speed, and savings but is a fully automated packaging line always the answer? For most, the complexities of a sustainable packaging environment extend further than a machine purchase. Processes need to be linked via software and integrated across various systems and existing assets to create a seamless end-to-end flow. In this session, we will dive into the current options available for those looking to automate part of their end packaging and shipping process and how this affects an overall workflow solution. Whether implementing a fully automated packaging system, a right-sized box erector, or just custom boxes made on-demand, considerations must be made to optimize and increase overall efficiency. Explore real-life scenarios of how each level of automation can impact a warehouse workflow, and lead to significant savings labor, material, and transportation costs.
