What does the warehouse of the future look like?

Posted September 6, 2019

The manufacturing factory and warehouse environment for consumer goods is changing with the development of new technologies, including Internet of Things, wearables, 3D Printing and robotics/automation to meet increasing consumer demands such as same-day delivery requirements.

At present, manufacturers produce and store their consumer goods in bulk on pallets– often moving the goods around the warehouse via forklifts and managing the storage of products through a racking system. This is today, but what does this manufacturing or warehouse environment look like in 10 years’ time and beyond?

The Competitor wants to hear ideas on how consumer goods may be handled, stored and moved around the warehouse of the future – and how changing consumer demands and continued development in technologies will impact the total warehouse environment.

Submission to this Challenge must be received by Oct 2, 2019.
