Intelligent warehouse – what technology can be used?

When we do not follow innovation, we have to reckon with being left behind, while our competitors can reap the laurels. Companies that are thinking about warehouse logistics according to the Industry 4.0 concept should definitely consider intelligent warehouses. With an automatic storage system that interacts with other elements of the logistics warehouse, Logitower can count on a major market advantage. After all, the complete optimisation of the supply chain can increase the productivity of a company.

Personalised and scaled organisation

The more organised the warehouse is, the more flows of goods it can accommodate, which in turn leads to greater efficiency, which is what the entrepreneur cares about most. In this way, it adapts in real time to changing factors, such as the management of resources or rapid response to unexpected problems. By coordinating individual factors with an automated management system, the logistics warehouse provides continuous, flexible and efficient organisational capacity for productivity. To what extent does this organisation manifest itself, and why is it so important? From receiving goods to picking orders and storing products, because every automated system is integrated into the supply chain. Good organisation goes hand in hand with warehouse automation. This is done out of the need to quickly eliminate repetitive tasks. In this way, we reduce the human factor in the warehouse.

Software as the key to an intelligent warehouse

The objective of the automated warehouse is to improve optimisation and efficiency through an adaptable & scalable organisation. Integration with an ERP or WMS system is essential for the proper functioning of a warehouse. What does this mean in practice? First of all, a system of several modules connected or built on the same platform is created. The WMS programme – warehouse management software, as the name suggests, is used to manage products stored in the halls of the warehouse. The tasks of the intelligent system include, for example, stock removal. The WMS solution optimises order picking and despatch. The system also allows for the quick and efficient handling of goods and packaging code files. With ERP, on the other hand, the most characteristic feature is the logical exchange of data. Often, these names are used interchangeably, which is actually a mistake


Implementing an intelligent warehouse control system (as we have already discovered) can bring a host of advantages that lead to further growth for the entrepreneur and his business. However, we have not mentioned Logitower’s off-the-shelf solutions, which, of course, are state-of-the-art technologies that fit right into the Industry 4.0 trend. In addition to simple single- or double-tower shelving, Logitower offers much more technologically advanced systems with off-the-shelf solutions such as integration with ERP and, more technically, with a cutting centre. At Logitower, we can see with the naked eye how technological advances and a better understanding of customer needs are driving the company forward. What is more, the development of artificial intelligence is also a major reason behind the advances in industrial automation that we can expect to see in the next few years.
