"Smart Strategies, Giving Speed to your Growth Trajectory"
Remember the last time you made an internet purchase. For some, this is a daily practice; for others, once a month is fine, and for still others, an internet purchase is a once-a-year pleasure. From buying a pen to smartphones to home groceries, you must have bought something online. People want items to be delivered at their doorsteps as soon as they click “buy” in today’s consumer-driven world. The vendors that sell and the service providers who deliver the items have a tremendous amount of pressure on them and the warehouses that store.
There is a boom in the e-commerce market and a rise in consumer demands for the same delivery. In order to fulfill the demand, online vendors and retailers who want to provide same-day delivery must have their warehouses and logistics operations automated by having the tools to fill orders in less than 24 hours.

McKinsey Global Institute in 2019 estimated that the automation industry for transportation and warehousing industry has the third-highest potential. From trucks, planes, even drones, new innovative logistics, and transportation catches catch our eye sights. For instance, in May 2021, Amazon has announced expanding its business in British Columbia and Metro Vancouver by constructing five new buildings. That includes a fulfillment center, sortation center, and three delivery stations. These new facilities will help them satisfy the growing demand for quality products and fast delivery times and expand the support and service.
Organizations like Amazon.com, FedEx, IKEA, Nike, and Walmarts have automated warehouses across many regions on the globe. For instance, in February 2020, Nike partnered with Geek+ robotics installed 220+ robots to introduce same-day delivery in Japan. These robots will carry Nike products directly to the workers at the warehouse to which will increase efficiency and decrease the cost making regular work easy.
The usage of IoT in the industrial sector and interconnected systems through the network is assisting businesses in various tasks, including material batching, picking, ordering, packaging, warehouse security, and inspection, and assisting in vastly improving operational efficiency.
