Production, provision, distribution. Goods will be moved automatically in the future. The logistical processes are ideally suited to this, and our customers appreciate the speed and reliability of digitized purchasing or the automated provision of parts in industrial processes.
Logistics has become an essential branch of industry in which enormous productivity gains can be achieved through automation, process quality can be significantly increased, and the flow of goods can be perfectly monitored via IT. Logistics is not only faster and cheaper but also environmentally friendly. Unnecessary overpacking is eliminated, routes are optimized, energy is saved, and damage is prevented.
The "Goods to Person" concept is at the heart of this. The idea is to bring goods to people safely, quickly, and well-protected. Robots can do this better than humans. Logistics processes are not creative; the same thing happens repeatedly once defined. The logistics of the future are controlled automatic cycles.
This is our world at Utz because it requires suitable containers - reusable containers.
In "goods to person" logistics centers, the provision of goods, known as picking, will soon take place fully automatically. Tedious manual sorting, storage, and retrieval will soon be history. In the grocery trade, "goods to person" takes place either as home delivery of online orders or as the provision of orders to micro-fulfillment centers. The trip to the grocery store and searching for groceries is no longer necessary. We have long used "goods to person" in parcel logistics. Here, it's all about standardization and automation. Cardboard packaging is not environmentally friendly, and the parcel carrier's job must become ergonomic and digital.
We at Utz have recognized this change. We are working on many exciting projects with providers of such "goods to person" systems. The logistics load carrier is often at the center of the solution. Precise containers, trays, or pallets are created to increase the efficiency of logistics processes. Utz load carriers are individually adapted to the requirements of the automated processes and think for themselves - smart technologies.
It goes without saying that all these new Utz products are manufactured in CO2-neutral Utz plants and produced from recycled plastics long-term.
