Warehouse keeps evolving in order to keep up with the heavy management tasks. Warehouse management complexity consists of multitude of inventory and wide range of temperature in set environment. It is a tough industrial application because it requires a lot of careful planning for logistics in order to satisfy requirements of high safety standards, low errors, quality assurance and high efficiency.
Effective warehouse management is challenging because the environment is difficult to work with as tasks from receiving inventory, asset management/tracking, order selection to shipping and delivering require high safety standard, low errors, quality assurance and high efficiency. There are many factors and requirements to consider before implementing smart automation solution into the warehouse management system.
Vehicles are one of the important elements in warehousing logistics. In order to successfully manage the vehicles, the management system requires:
- high stability, reliability, and efficiency
- easy maintenance - excellent connectivity
- adaptable to outdoor environment
- durable to collision
APLEX introduces in-vehicle industrial panel PC solution. APLEX presents the aluminum front bezel design panel PC APC-3072/3073 and rugged plastic housing APC-3082/3083.
