    SAFETY

    Why does it matter?

    With e-commerce booming, shipping and logistics companies are operating at max capacity. This means that every truck, pallet, and box must be packed quickly and efficiently for maximum utilization. In addition, the driver workforce is not trained and experienced staff. Every year, the industry is lacking 400 or 500 people, and so automation will be a key driver in improving the productivity in our industry as well as maintaining growth in the industry.

     

    Huge opportunities to interface between these conventional systems with wearable technologies that can enable the operator to be faster, error-free, and more efficient.

    10:30 - 12:00 pm Meeting 2 (Silicon Valley)

    TRANSPARENCY

    Why does it matter?

    Freight visibility provides fine details of the cargo, at any given moment. This helps companies to better identify bottlenecks or prepare for unexpected delays. Real-time visibility also offers a transparent experience for the customers. To know where things are, whether they are ready to be loaded, ready to be released from customs; you’ll enable the process to be much smoother, and it would impact not only your quality but also safety. We have around 175,000 containers and pallets moving around the globe. A lot of we are doing is about repositioning units where the airline wants them to be, so knowing where they are is very important.”

    Working Lunch @ Plug & Play in Sunnyvale.

    2:30 pm - 4:00pm @AeroVect Expert Talk & Demo

    SPEED

    Why does it matter?

    Within airport logistics, there are numerous challenges these days: First is the labor shortage — you have crews turning over up to 160% at some hubs: workers come in, do their six months, and leave afterward to entirely different industries.

    4:00 - 5:30 pm Meeting 5 Silicon Valley

    SAFETY

    Why does it matter?
    Given the current growth rate for e-commerce during Covid, many more shipments will be taking a journey by aircraft and therefore, in ULDs, in the years ahead. This combination will yield a growing market for any solution that is successful.

    As warehouses become bigger, they also hold massive amounts of inventory. This requires workers to cover long distances and carry large weights throughout a workday. Collaborative robots or cobots are semi-autonomous machines that assist workers in carrying out their tasks, reduce physical labor, and improve worker safety. These robots are flexible and easily reprogrammable to undertake a diverse range of functions such as following workers as mobile storage bins or picking up items.
    Warehouse automation enables improvements in productivity and accuracy in intralogistics operations. Moreover, it also helps reduce labor costs and improve worker safety.
