USD 300 million for North American facilities
DHL Supply Chain wants to deploy emerging technologies in 350 of its 430 facilities in North America as part of a USD 300 million investment.
The technologies to be installed will vary according to customer needs, based on the outcome of research and pilot programmes completed by DHL’s internal innovation teams and collaboration with external innovators.
The availability of these technologies is expected to help the diverse customer base including those addressing e-commerce and omni-channel challenges to minimise complexity, remove capacity constraints, and maximise service to their customers.
Accelerating the implementation of selected technologies such as robotics, augmented reality, robotics process automation, IoT and DHL’s proprietary end-to-end visibility solution – My Supply Chain – is the objective of DHL Supply Chain’s global digitalisation strategy. (mw)
