The global warehouse automation market is expected to grow from $29.6 billion in 2020 to almost $70 billion in 2025 (Interact Analysis). Why is automation so important? Today, businesses are tasked with increasing efficiencies, streamlining processes and achieving better visibility to inventory. This is critical to quickly addressing market demand and the growth in e-commerce. Warehouse automation is one area that adds to greater supply chain agility and helps improve customer satisfaction and competitive advantage. The forecasted growth in automation also reflects the need for businesses to address changing market conditions, such as labor shortages. Customers have come to expect delivery in hours rather than days, and online visibility to their in-transit shipments. Moreover, automating warehousing processes is a foolproof way to more effectively manage inventory, track shipments and streamline fulfillment. Speed and service is critical to a business’s success, and the customer experience must be in keeping with market expectations. One area prone to human error is the measurement and weighing of palletized cargo and packages. Accuracy is critical to on-demand inventory data and the efficient movement of stock. Warehouse managers have found that they are able to recoup $40 of lost revenue, on average, for every incoming pallet using digital solutions, such as the Magaya Dimensioner. This automation tool measures and weighs pallets and packages and accurately records the maximum dimensions of each unit. Photos are part of the system and can be shared with customers. Cost and time savings are achieved, each use of the Dimensioner achieves a 3 minute savings.
