The supply chain has undergone dramatic change in the past decade, with cost
reductions, productivity improvements and delivery performance no longer the only
drivers for logistics system design.
Today, labor availability, OH&S and flexibility are equally important considerations,
with the growing awareness of these issues driving a distribution logistics revolution
across all markets from retailers to wholesalers, and manufacturers to 3PL (thirdparty
logistics) providers. Working on thousands of projects with many of the
world’s most successful and enterprising businesses gives Dematic a unique global
insight into what it takes to deliver distribution logistics success.
While different industries, markets, countries, cultures and companies of different
sizes all require their own solutions, our experience shows there are many different
technologies and techniques helpful in improving performance. It is often difficult to
sort out which is the most appropriate and why, and that’s why we have developed
a system for grouping concepts.
