Event Details

Automation, Robotics, Big Data, Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, the Alibaba Effect - no matter what your business is up against, it’s probably safe to say your warehousing and distribution operations in the Philippines do not look like they did five years ago.

Today’s modern warehouse incorporates a mix of highly evolved technologies and optimised business processes, while maximising human interaction. The need for efficiency and application of lean principles are critical to minimise costs and improve customer service.

Organisations are facing a growing number of market pressures - faster order fulfillment, error costs, lack of space, and increasing labor costs have brought a lot of complexity to logistics and warehouse management in the Philippines.

Join us on March 20 in Manila to discuss the role of warehousing in a digital world. During this event, we will take a closer look at what elements make a modern warehouse successful. We will discuss software, hardware and other warehouse stuff along with practical case studies in the Philippines.
