The future of the supply chain

Key innovations launched to market

Honeywell has successfully staged a key industry educational online broadcast event called “The Future of Supply Chain.” The event introduced latest technology breakthroughs and innovative solutions for manufacturers, distribution centres, logistics providers, delivery firms and retailers to help drive efficiency across their supply chain operations.

 

The new technologies launched as part of “The Future of Supply Chain” broadcast range from a revolutionary 3-D dimensioning system that automatically captures the volume of parcels to connected solutions that boost the productivity of workers in brick-and-mortar retail stores.

    “"The e-commerce boom and growing consumer expectations have put a spotlight on operational inefficiencies and disconnects. To stay competitive, businesses need to deploy the Internet of Things, cloud solutions and automation throughout their supply chains," said John Waldron, president and CEO of Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions (SPS). "The technology we launched today demonstrates our commitment to innovation and bringing to market hardware and software solutions that can help organisations boost productivity and safety."”

SPS is deploying connected solutions for a range of customer challenges. Automation, software and hardware solutions are helping retailers meet growing customer expectations for faster and cheaper delivery. Cloud technology is helping logistics providers better track and route deliveries. And connected safety solutions from SPS make workplaces safer by enabling better monitoring of workers in high-risk situations, such as firefighters or utility line workers.

   

Honeywell also showcased how it is advancing cloud-based mobile solutions on its Movilizer platform. Honeywell is leveraging Movilizer’s cloud technology to deliver turnkey mobile apps that partners can customise and a development platform on which companies can build their own apps. The Movilizer technology handles more than 1.5 million transactions each day and is commonly used by mobile workers performing field service, maintenance, sales and distribution activities.
