Strategic Challenges for Distribution Centers

Ecommerce GrowthRes2
E-Commerce Growth
Worldwide e-commerce sales are projected to reach $3.7 trillion by 2020, growing at five times the rate of conventional retail. The traditional model supporting brick-and-mortar stores is being rapidly re-engineered to address the supply chain complexities and demands of the growing e-commerce market.
Whether your strategy is fulfilling from a distribution center or using your existing infrastructure to deliver goods the “last mile”
Dane’s solutions bridge the gap between manual processes and full automation, to create flexible infrastructure, efficient pick and pack, and a mobilized workforce in order fulfillment and distribution centers.

Flexiinfra
New Models for Existing Infrastructure
On average, the U.S. has added 178 million square feet of distribution center space every year for the past 40 years. Yet, this existing warehouse infrastructure is not optimized for rapidly evolving e-commerce. With 92% of U.S. retailers selling products online, both brick-and-mortar stores and distribution centers must be capable of efficient pick and pack order fulfillment and direct to consumer shipping. Fully robotic systems have a high initial and continued operating cost, in addition to a high implementation risk. Success or failure in this rapidly changing e-marketplace will be determined by a company’s ability to implement a hybrid alternative to the fully robotic model. Market leaders will require a low-cost system that leverages existing infrastructure by immediately integrating into their current operating model, optimizing it for efficient and flexible order fulfillment.
pickpackRes
Efficient Pick & Pack
For businesses utilizing e-commerce, speed and accuracy of order fulfillment are a standard for consumer loyalty. As online shopping continues to grow, fast order fulfillment will be difficult to achieve within traditional warehousing models. Distribution centers that are able to implement a flexible, robust pick-and-pack system that is responsive to both the needs of individual consumers and overall market demand will gain competitive advantage and increased market share. This will require adopting solutions that can deliver efficiency returns for a single item order as well as bulk and multi-product shipments. For businesses ranging from brick-and-mortar retailers incorporating in-store pickup of online purchases, to distribution centers coordinating large-scale e-commerce fulfillment, the answer is the same: a simple, flexible, and easily integrated smart solution.
DistCenMobWorkRes
Mobilized Workforce
Typical e-commerce distribution models require 3-5 times as many employees as traditional warehouses. Managing a workforce in e-commerce fulfillment requires solutions that optimize coordination, efficiency, and safety. Click and collect, as well as pick and pack methods of order placement demand individualized sorting, packing, and shipping of items. Prompt and accurate order fulfillment can only be accomplished when employees are working independently, but operating as fully integrated elements of smart order fulfillment systems. Efficiency will demand multi-purpose sorting and collection technology, which can simultaneously increase the capacity and rate of collection for individual employees. Finally, the rapid rate of order fulfillment will present safety challenges to an aging workforce, which is at an increased risk of repetitive-motion injury and musculoskeletal disorder. For distribution center leaders, the ability to coordinate, optimize, and protect their workforce will be critical for maintaining a competitive advantage as the e-commerce market continues to expand.
