Innovation is the Key for Warehousing in 2020

Creating a cohesive supply chain requires a level of innovation that will improve work processes and your workforce’s productivity plus their health and safety record.
Here at Tractive Power, we understand the importance of having a team that can adapt to a variety of tasks. The use of one of our many electric tugs frees up other members of your workforce’s to take on other tasks in your factory or warehouse.

For our latest blog, we are going to discuss some of the biggest innovations coming to warehousing throughout 2020.

Four Ways Warehousing is Changing this Year

1. Monitor Workers with Technology – Researchers at the University of Washington have developed a piece of technology which monitors warehouse workers and identifies risks for manual handling tasks (which could be completed instead by battery-powered tugs).
2. Reducing Emissions with New Targets – In accordance with the Paris Agreement, more than 600 multinational companies have already set targets to reduce carbon emissions. This will also extend to their networks of service providers and carriers. This initiative will help tackle the climate crisis, without compromising on productivity.
3. Retail to Warehouse Conversions Has Started – Empty stores and shopping centres are now being eyed by companies and distributors as spaces that can be converted into warehouse spaces.
4. Sustainable Energy Warehouses – In an effort to reduce the cost of energy in warehouses, researchers from Binghamton University (in New York, USA) are developing a new energy storage process which will help to use energy in units all over the world more efficiently.
