Customer demands for faster and more accurate deliveries force decision-makers to find intelligent solutions that optimize order fulfillment. When a delivery process isn’t in line with customer demands, it can lead to higher shipping costs and more unsatisfied customers. Studies estimate that last-mile delivery costs account for 53% of total shipping costs. Additionally, studies show that the growth of e-commerce has led to a 33% increase in B2B delivery and a 67% increase in B2C delivery over the last two years. Higher volumes and costs can cause inventory inaccuracies and slower delivery times. On top of higher costs and increased delivery rates, 80% of customers want same-day shipping. Higher demands, volumes, and costs for delivery force businesses to evaluate their delivery processes. This leads to a surging interest in intelligent automation, which can help solve delivery challenges that drain expenses and time, such as:

●     Cost of last-mile deliveries

●     Delivery allocation and address location

●     Achieving routing efficiency and route optimization

●     Unpredictability in transit

A business that does not address these issues and tries to optimize the delivery process with intelligent solutions can be unprepared when unpredictable shifts from customer demands happen. Intelligent automation can help ensure that your workers focus on the right tasks to improve warehouse efficiency.

Transform your operations into dynamic and highly efficient workflows.

To keep your warehouse efficient and your deliveries running smoothly, your workers need and deserve intelligent automation and mobility solutions. The demand for building more efficient warehouses and smoother deliveries is why Zebra and Quadbridge partner. Our partnership works to help businesses deliver seamless delivery and efficient workflows with:

  1. Embedded connectivity to streamline communication - An improved level of warehouse communication can help employees make more informed decisions and talk to their teams     when workflows get busy. Secure collaboration across the frontline with secured connectivity solutions that improve warehouse workflows. Zebra’s Workforce Connect minimizes hardware, prevents     distractions, enhances customer service, and elevates visibility to simplify warehouse workflows.
  2. Faster, more flexible fulfillment with robotics - Autonomous mobile robotics is one solution for intelligent automation. Robotics can streamline distribution operations by moving any type of payload without taking workers away from essential     tasks. Versatile inventory capabilities help reduce downtime spent on case picking and cross-docking so your workers can focus on reducing delivery times.
  3. Digitized data processing for reduced downtime - Rugged mobile computers and industry-leading, ultra-rugged scanners like the DS3600 help decrease the total cost of ownership and boost real-time communication. Since tough devices     require less maintenance and enable real-time communication, downtime is reduced, and data capture is improved. Furthermore, durable technology helps your workers meet rising e-commerce demands and withstand warehouse     conditions.
  4. Unparalleled productivity in your     warehouse - As order volumes increase and fulfillment times get shorter, you need mobility solutions that support growth. However, implementing mobility needs to be cost-effective and easily integrated, or it could put your current operations at risk. Choosing the right mobile technology can deliver the data capture capabilities and visibility your warehouse needs to streamline delivery.
