DHL launches IoT cockpits at three smart warehouses

DHL launches IoT cockpits at three smart warehouses

According to DHL, the pilot system allows the company to monitor operational activities in real-time through a “responsive graphical visualization of operational data aggregated from sensors on scanners and material handling equipment, and DHL’s warehouse management system”.

DHL is working with technology companies Cisco and Conduce to run the pilots.

“By monitoring operational activities in real-time rather than retrospectively, we can interpret data more meaningfully, and immediately re-engineer processes or warehouse layouts to boost operational efficiency and address potential safety blind spots in a warehouse,” said Markus Voss, Chief Information Officer & Chief Operating Officer, DHL Supply Chain.
