A data-driven approach to supply chain management

On my journey within the manufacturing sector, I've learned that the challenges and trends remain constant, but the approaches to addressing them are continuously evolving. This dynamic presents new opportunities, particularly in fiercely competitive markets.

The Warehouse Automation Industry Structure is Changing: Are You Ready for Disruption?

The industry value chain is changing. We're seeing a shift away from highly customized fixed automation solutions to more modular, configurable, and standardized systems, like AutoStore and OPEX. This will have far reaching implications on the industry's value chain.
