“It all starts in the DC, where anything that is being done on paper is slower and wrought with errors. When you work off the paper, you are working more slowly than you would be if you were using directed system input, mobility devices, scanners, and/or voice,” said Lynn Huang, head of marketing and strategy for Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. According to Huang, by making improvements to tackle last-mile transportation challenges, companies will reap benefits such as cost savings, fewer product returns, better visibility, happier customers, and more streamlined supply chains.
