The new products and solutions are targeted at regional manufacturers, distribution centers, logistics providers, delivery firms and retailers and aim to significantly streamline operations and ultimately achieve better bottom-line results by driving efficiency across supply chain operations.
The new technology ranges from a revolutionary 3-D dimensioning system that automatically captures the volume of parcels to connected solutions that boost the productivity of workers in brick-and-mortar retail stores.
“The e-commerce boom and growing consumer expectations have put a spotlight on operational inefficiencies and disconnects. To stay competitive, businesses need to deploy Internet of Things, cloud solutions and automation throughout their supply chains,” according to John Waldron, president and CEO, Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions (SPS).
Edmond Mikhael, general manager for Honeywell SPS in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META), said: “Having access to the latest technology allows those working in supply chain management to plan better, run multiple operations and drive collaborative decision making, therefore improving delivery and response times.”
He added: “Our solutions increase effectiveness through automated and optimized processes that reach every touch point – from the warehouse to retail shops, enabling a seamless end-user experience and allowing our customers to get closer to their goal of a more efficient, next generation supply chain.”
Honeywell is deploying connected solutions for a range of customer challenges. Automation, software and hardware solutions are helping retailers meet growing customer expectations for faster and cheaper delivery.
Cloud technology is helping logistics providers better track and route deliveries. And, connected safety solutions from SPS make workplaces safer by enabling better monitoring of workers in high-risk situations, such as firefighters or utility line workers.
