What will warehouse and distribution look like in 2025?

The last twenty years have seen more warehousing and logistics transformations than ever before. In this relatively short period of time, warehouse operators have taken a closer look at how they can get more visibility into their operations by increasing the level of digitization – not only in their own locations but also when collaborating with their supply chain partners. Decades-old technologies such as warehouse management systems (WMS), barcoding and data analytics, have played a key role in making this happen. Today, warehouse modernization starts with focusing on workers and workflow optimization, then adopting new technologies to integrate and synchronize with existing WMS and automation, as well as thinking ahead to future investments.

The evolution of warehousing, distribution, fulfilment and logistics continues rapidly. As we review the top technology trends, it’s important to keep in mind that warehouse operators need to future-proof their investments today to lay a solid foundation to adopt these new tools and place themselves in a strategic position. According to a recent Warehousing Vision Study, 61% of warehouse operators said they will augment people with technologies, and more than three-quarters (77%) of decision makers agree that they need to modernize operations across the warehouse to remain competitive in the on-demand economy.
