Have you ever ordered a large package and found that it would be shipped to you the very next day? Ever wonder how it was possible that the minute you buy something online, it’s already found, registered, and in the process of getting to you?
Machine learning is revolutionary in almost every field, but the warehouse industry in particular has seen huge gains thanks to some of the advancements this technology has provided. It’s completely changed the way warehouses can track, manage, and ship items by streamlining and automating many common tasks to the point where the process is almost completely autonomous.
Beforehand, these warehouses would have had to do everything by hand, one at a time, but now that has all changed. Once a customer makes a purchase on an online store, their purchase information and shipping label can be created automatically and applied to the correct product.
Now, this can all be accomplished easily thanks to machine learning warehouse optimization that constantly receives data and can automatically forecast demand for an item and shipping time based on an address, create the appropriate labels and guides, and manage inventory all in the blink of an eye.
