Devices and Solutions for Workforce Productivity in Warehouse Logistics

The move away from paper-based warehouse management towards the digitization of warehouse tasks using barcode scanners, Radio Frequency (RF) devices, and communication tools is certainly not a new development in logistics. Nevertheless, these technologies are now being developed further while newer technological developments are offering new opportunities for warehouses to drive efficiency, visibility, and intelligence throughout their operations. The emergence of Augmented Reality (AR), more sophisticated voice solutions, specialized mobile devices, AI-driven optimization platforms, and exoskeletons is transforming workforce productivity. This is allowing warehouses to increase throughput rates, reduce errors, improve inventory accuracy, retain and onboard staff more effectively, and ultimately cut costs within the supply chain. This report explores how productivity technologies are evolving and how they are being adopted in warehouses globally.
