The future of warehousing 

Companies will continue to face multiple challenges in 2023, with high inflation, uncertain energy prices, pressing sustainability targets, and an economic slowdown. So, what is ahead for the supply chain industry? How will market dynamics affect warehouse management? And how can we turn challenges into opportunities?

  • Is warehouse automation the savior to be ready for the future?
  • How can we go from reactive to proactive warehouse management?  
  • Will distribution networks be centralized or decentralized?  
  • How to boost sustainability in the warehouse?
