DHL Supply Chain has used Internet of Things technology, data analytics and a digital twin – which bridges the physical and virtual warehouse – to create the Smart Warehouse solution. This digital solution enables 24/7 coordination of operations to resolve issues as they occur, particularly in terms of safety.
There are six key elements of DHL Smart Warehouse initiative:
1. Efficiency gain with reduced congestion
2. Alerts for controlled areas
3. Monitor temperature systems
4. Full traffic visibility
5. Real time operational data
6. Enhanced MHE safety
DHL Supply Chain has successfully implemented an integrated supply chain solution for Tetra Pak’s warehouse in Singapore, the first smart warehouse for DHL in Asia Pacific to deploy the digital twin technology. Read more on the story here.
