Innovative technology honored in SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – September 13, 2023 – Kenco, a leading third-party logistics (3PL) provider, today announced its Slot DC solution was recognized as the Warehousing Automated Picking Solution of the Year by the SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards.
The SupplyTech Breakthrough Awards recognize the world’s best companies, products and services in the supply chain technology and logistics industry in 22 categories, including Transportation & Fleet Management, eCommerce Logistics and Digital Freight Shipping. The competition is put on by market intelligence organization SupplyTech Breakthrough.
Kenco’s Slot DC solution simplifies and improves the way warehouses perform slotting and zoning. Specifically, Slot DC uses machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to predict in advance which product needs to be slotted or rezoned, while considering tough-to-see patterns, profile changes and seasonality. It is 100% automated and requires little, if any, manual manipulation.
Other Slot DC benefits include:
- Putaway compliance and zone recommendations for reserve and forward pick areas;
- Move reports that detail SKU moves between non-optimal and optimal zones, along with a cost/benefit analysis, part of which helps operations see the impact of changes in volume.
- Proactive alerts and reports to ensure dynamic slotting.
