The Ekol R&D team is preparing its infrastructure for Industry 4.0, taking concrete steps to update associated processes and applications. Ekol has never ceased investing in R&D and innovation, and places Logistics 4.0 at the heart of its approach.
Industry 4.0 is a vision that involves manufacturing technologies, and the transformation it is due to bring will result in significant changes to production centers and processes. The production transformation will focus on facilitating instant interaction in all steps along the supply chain, allowing the communication-driven management of suppliers, warehouses, market shelves, vehicles on the road, and processes at smart facilities. Intelligent devices will constantly feed information on stock levels, supply chain disruptions, damaged goods, and order and supply level changes. As a consequence, processes will be reshaped to ensure efficiency and productivity.
