Ways In Which Logistics Technology Is Impacting Warehousing
  • 13th June 2020

The drive to create competitive advantage at Siggol Logistics and increase delivery speed has led to numerous breakthroughs in our logistics technology. Warehouses, being important hubs in the Kenya logistics supply chain, are under pressure to keep up with technology trends to keep pace with demand.

Today, we will examine various leading logistics technologies at Siggol logistics that are driving warehouse operations trends and capability improvements:


These have been essential in adding last-minute delivery capabilities. Retailers and e-commerce companies continue to compete for market share with two-day, next-day and same-day delivery offerings. Demand for rapid delivery has led to an increased interest in the use of drones for last-mile delivery. In turn, logistics warehouses face even more pressure to fulfill orders faster and with greater accuracy in order to keep up with demand.


These are expanding inventory visibility. With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), the idea that “everything is connected” is becoming a reality. The IoT is a boon for the warehouse and logistics industry. At Siggol Logistics we have utilized IoT thus having real-time, accurate visibility into inventory situations, location and the supply chain as a whole.

Recently, our use of active and passive RFID tags has increased the amount of product data that can be accessed remotely for any individual item. With this technology, Siggol Logistics warehouse operators know where their inventory is and where it’s going in real-time. This advanced location tracking has greatly improved the speed of order processing as it provides a new level of reliability in planning.


This enables real-time shipment tracking (Feel free to check out our Siggol Logistics Sea freight services). By coupling RFID tags with GPS, it is possible to track shipments in real-time (and with greater precision) during transportation.

These advancements in GPS-based fleet management provide a consistent, end-to-end view of the logistics delivery channel. Better visibility facilitates improved communication between retailers, distribution centers and end consumers by allowing any and all parts of the distribution chain to access the current location of orders at any given time.


This technology at Siggol Logistics has boosted our pick efficiency and accuracy. The use of collaborative mobile robots brings artificial intelligence to the warehouse, boosting picking efficiency and accuracy.

These mobile warehouse robotics systems at Siggol Logistics leverage artificial intelligence to choose the best picking routes while eliminating long or unnecessary walks in the warehouse.


This allows Siggol Logistics operations to scale as demand shifts. Balancing supply and demand is as important as ever, but doing so requires flexibility.

The adoption of Automation-as-a-Service technologies is on the rise, allowing warehouses to readily scale resources up or down to accommodate shifts in demand. These systems provide more flexibility when it comes to managing costs, priority deliveries and distribution channels.

Beyond the traditional use of third-party logistics providers (3PLs) is the emergence of on-demand warehousing. This allows companies to access additional warehouse space when and only when they might need it. Like Automation-as-a-Service, on-demand warehousing eliminates the need to invest in permanent warehouse space that isn’t consistently needed. At this same time, it also enables warehouses built for peak capacity to leverage extra space during slower periods.

At Siggol logistics we understand that innovations in logistics technology will continue to have a noticeable impact on the entire supply chain landscape well into the future. Warehouse operators who are able and willing to continually adopt new and effective warehouse capabilities will give themselves an edge in a challenging environment.
