Operator – Hello, Good morning from Smart logistics LLC, Cape Town, South Africa. How can I help you?
Prospect – I need to book 2500 sq.mtr of your cold chain, temperature-controlled smart warehouse facility for a week. We need to see the storage space & want to monitor the white wines we export regularly to Europe. If found suitable, we will take on lease, the warehouse space on a long-term basis. We also need to remotely monitor the inventory, track workers, shipments, temperature & possible damages due to poor cargo handling methods.
Our customer in Europe insists on traceability of the shipments and the final invoice payment is adjusted for damages or delays in case of deviation from any of the predefined conditions in supply chain digitisation & visibility.
Helpdesk – Welcome. You can visit our smart warehouse anytime between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm. Monday through Saturday. The storage area can be dedicated for your special purpose and using our customer portal, we will configure with a user name and password so that all warehouse tracking parameters, including arrival, stay, despatch time and environmental parameters can be regularly monitored remotely in a secure manner.
Smart warehouse for the new normal
The customer logs into to the Digital twin logistics platform to select an eCommerce option, The available 2500 sq.mtr zones in the smart warehouse are listed under temperature-controlled, fragile, food and consumable section.
The customer selects a temperature-controlled zone with a constant environment reading, the rental duration of 1 week, add-ons like air quality, humidity, ambient light & temperature monitoring along with the 10-minute frequency of reporting & individual wine carton tracking options into the warehouse eCommerce cart. Makes online payment – Selects drop off time for the cargo and the service level agreements
During the drop off of the premium organic white wine, the truck driver is able to download the order specifications. A docket contains the required tracking tags and the layout map of the booked temperature-controlled zone is made available at the front gate. The tags are attached to the 10 cartons and stacked in the designated zone. The job has been done, thanks to smart warehouse automation solutions for the new normal.
Farm monitoring & eCommerce
