A New Scenario In The Logistics Sector Enhances The Value Of Warehouse Management Systems

From 14 to 16 June 2022, the Global Mobility Call took place at IFEMA, an edition marked by a new context set by the new measures stipulated in Royal Decree-Law 3/2022.

The GMC is a global forum that focuses on the integral reflection on all the agents and factors that intervene in the reality of sustainable mobility. It takes into account topics ranging from technology and innovation, economic development and sustainable transport, to others such as urban planning and the society of the future.

One of the main axes of the forum, which has marked its development, has been the Royal Decree-Law 3/2022 and all the measures imposed that affect the transport and logistics sector and in general the entire business network, which will have to rethink its own warehouse management and logistics control systems in order to guarantee its efficiency.

What are the implications of the Royal Decree-Law and how does it relate to Warehouse Management Systems?

The Royal Decree-Law 3/2022 touches on many of the aspects that influence and completely change the reality that has existed until now in the world of work in the transport sector.

The current and future lack of professionals in the sector is largely due to the harsh working conditions in the workplace, especially during loading and unloading of goods. For this reason, one of the imposed regulations stipulates that this task will now be the responsibility of the company sending or receiving the shipment.

The responsibility, which will now fall on the companies, has highlighted the importance of implementing warehouse management systems, and other measures to control the logistics department, in order to make them more efficient and effective.

The Importance Of Streamlining Uploads And Downloads With New Regulations

Another factor to take into account is that after one hour of waiting by the transport company, it will be considered as a stoppage. This concept implies that surcharges will be implemented in the price of the transport corresponding to this, which will make it more expensive and will suppose an additional cost for the companies.

It is for this reason that within the approach of having warehouse management systems, companies are interested in software that specifically focuses on streamlining the loading and unloading processes and avoids wasting time and, consequently, money.

Slot’s Eyes was developed for this purpose and has been very well received in the market, as it allows time slot bookings to be made, with an advance notice stipulated by the user, in order to optimise time and human and material resources. Slot’s Eyes makes it possible to see the warehouse situation in real time, accept or deny slot reservations and control arrivals and departures.
