New Tricks Learned for 2020’s Ecommerce Boom

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Nov 16, 2020 11:27:19 PM

2020, for all its faults, is the year that almost every company and business “decided” to finally jump into Ecommerce.

While Retailers’ online sites in 2018 totaled sales over $400 billion, they will far exceed that in 2020 and are expected to grow to over $700 billion in 2020, with some of the fastest growth coming in food and beverage (23.4% - 58.5%) and health and beauty increasing from 16.6% to 32.4%. (source: eMarketer.com). That pace along with the expected drop in total brick-and-mortar sales means Ecommerce will make up over 14% of total retail sales in 2020.

Four Ways You Waste Space in the Warehouse

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Feb 19, 2020 12:46:40 AM

Ask a facility manager to list the biggest challenges they face, and they almost unanimously include “space” in their top three, if not number one. This is often a symptom of growth outpacing the ability to expand into more space, but is most often the result of space being used ineffectively. In a perfect world, your facility is full of robots, modular racking that adapts to changes quickly, and A WMS with an AI feature that automatically places everything in its optimal space, ensuring every inch is utilized and every unused inch is known and tracked.

Like much of the warehouse and logistics industries, the cold storage aspect of it is growing rapidly as well in almost every major KPI.

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Mar 19, 2019 7:00:00 AM

While Wi-Fi connectivity is generally ubiquitous throughout the workplace, our homes and even in most public spaces where we dine or travel, wireless technology evolved from warehouse and distribution centers. Given the origins of wireless networking, providing reliable wireless connectivity in this environment is not entirely mastered by many businesses in the same way it is in the front offices.

Large open facilities like warehouses, distribution centers and their adjacent yards pose specific challenges coming from the building materials, the distances (and height), interior equipment and infrastructure and the types of wireless devices in use.
