High-speed delivery and transfer of goods and materials requires fast, effective, and reliable logistics systems both inside warehouses as well as in the transportation system. Getting this right is especially crucial in our highly fragmented globalized supply chains. In the Smart Logistics project, we are developing tools and automation technologies to enhance the capabilities of modern warehouses.
We are building a modeling and simulation testbed of the state-of-the-art warehouse to better analyze current advancements in global logistics. A carefully modeled system can help mitigate delays in production and delivery by helping detect bottlenecks before they happen.
