DHL Supply Chain looks to technology
DHL Supply Chain, a leader in contract, is building on impressive double-digit growth last year and expanding its Thai business, with a reorientation focused around digital disruption and anticipated changes in consumer expectations.
Last year, DHL announced that it would invest Bt2.7 billion by 2020 into its end-to-end operations in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar in an effort to continue strengthening its growing regional footprint.
Innovations include a ring scanner, a lightweight Bluetooth-enabled wearable scanner which allows quick barcode scanning while letting staff keep both hands free and vision picking, which brings augmented reality into warehouse operations using smart glasses that enable a portable, high-quality viewing experience.
There are also collaborative robots which work safely alongside people to support with complex and repetitive tasks.
