Warehouse is a strategic decoupling point in the supply chain, which helps businesses to match demand with supply and help tackle the uncertainties. Warehouse has five basic operations to perform they are: Receiving, Put-away, storage, order picking and shipping.

The exact number of operations depend on type of warehouse (Warehouse, Distribution Center, Cross dock facility), product and type of orders that are received. Automation helps businesses help improve their business performance metrics, which are key for their business success.


The upcoming trends are mostly driven by two major changes in technology: 5G and Artificial Intelligence.

With 5G the latency has reduced drastically which has improved the productivity and performance of many of the autonomous vehicles, Technologies like Fiber, DOCSIS 3.X, LPWAN in the fixed coverage segment can also enable performance but the adoption rate of 5G is much higher.

Improvement in AI has enabled computer vision and Augmented reality which can help in improve productivity in warehouses, AI can enable vision quality which help in online grocery and F&B industry to help optimize the quality control processes, also AI helps in reading texts and recognizing images helping in enabling worker’s performance.

Blockchain is one other technology which still in the nascent stage as the adoption is expected at an industry level rather than at a warehouse level, but this technology can help in improving the inventory verification processes and help in optimizing inventory at a multi echelon level.
