DENSO WAVE offers high quality Auto-ID solutions for logistics that have a long-term and sustainable effect!
The latest edition of the study “Trends and strategies in logistics and supply chain management” functions as a helpful guide for players in logistics and supply chain management regarding present and future decisions and developments.
Around 300 logisticians were interviewed for the study. 16 percent are from the retail sector, the rest equally from industry and logistics services. The study focuses on the sustainable and digital transformation in logistics and supply chain management. Human being, technology and organization are holistically considered as central success factors.
DENSO WAVE EUROPE, part of the Toyota group, helps the logistics industry take the important step towards greater sustainability with innovative handhelds, scanners and digital solutions for mobile data collection. Mobile computers such as handheld terminals, scanners, and IoT solutions like ORiN, the data management platform from DENSO, are important factors in saving time and costs, and thus, operating more sustainably.
Mastering Industry 4.0 and focusing on Sustainability – DENSO offers Solutions
The consulting company Deloitte also surveyed more than 2,000 managers from 19 countries about Industry 4.0. The analysis shows that sustainability is becoming more important for companies: 54 percent of those surveyed state that they consider the topics of climate change and ecological sustainability to be among the most pressing social challenges. More information about the study that sheds light on Industry 4.0 in connection with the topic of sustainability is available here.
As part of the Toyota Group, DENSO WAVE EUROPE knows how important resources in logistics and warehouse management are. Therefore, the company offers solutions to better manage inventory and processes.
Numerous customers from the logistics and warehouse management sectors have been able to optimize their processes through the use of handheld terminals, scanners and other IoT solutions, such as the data management platform ORiN. Not only have they been able to save time and costs, but also significantly increase the work quality of the employees. Sustainability is realized by saving resources – time, costs, goods – and in addition, the data collection devices are durable.
Belinamont in Croatia is an example of successful and sustainable warehouse management: The use of handheld terminals from DENSO has reduced the inventory in the warehouse by almost 40 percent. In addition, the storage of excess material in the warehouse and the associated costs have been reduced as well. This way, resources are conserved and the available goods in the warehouse are sold in a targeted manner. More about this success story about the use of mobile computers in logistics and warehouse management is available here.
Scanners, Handhelds, Data Management – how DENSO’s Auto-ID Solutions score
The innovative mobile computers BHT-1700 and BHT-1800, that DENSO launched, are optimized for the use in logistics and warehouse management. The BHT-1700 combines a touch panel and keyboard. Its 4-inch display can be used with the keyboard in order to scan, use apps and make phone calls. Users can ergonomically use the handheld to register goods or to place an order. While doing so, they can quickly check the stocks.
Thus, they avoid overstocking the warehouse and operate sustainably. Users can also use the BHT-1800 handheld in warehouses and logistics: With its 5-inch display, it has DENSO’s biggest display ever. As it is equipped with Asahi Dragontrail™ Pro Glass, it is also particularly robust. This makes the handheld more sustainable in comparison to smartphones, since it does not have to be immediately replaced when it falls down and the screen shatters.
In addition, the data management platform ORiN is interesting regarding Industry 4.0 and IoT, because it can create a data-networked environment. For the so-called smart factory, it is essential to connect devices within the company and collect data from these data collection devices for analysis purposes. Decision-makers can hence optimize processes, for example, where excess goods are not used. With a better analysis of the stocks through data collection, a contribution to more sustainability can be made.
ORiN acts as a data management platform that provides middleware with which information from various devices can be collected and then shared with manufacturing systems, BI tools, and cloud solutions. The data can be freely forwarded between all connected devices and software systems. The data can also be transformed and corresponding processes can be triggered.
Thus, the data management platform ORiN serves, among other things, as a means for process optimization, condition monitoring, data analysis, monitoring of machines and service performance as well as process definition. Because only those who have an overview of their data and stocks in the warehouse and logistics can also focus on the important topic of sustainability in everyday tasks and processes.
