Today’s global supply chain complexity creates many blind spots - whether you're managing environmental and political uncertainty, multi-enterprise business networks, the pressures of e-commerce, or multi-modal shipping. Proper visibility has become crucial to mitigating the impacts of disruption and optimally choosing between multiple sources, delivery points, and logistical processes to consistently ensure profitability and customer satisfaction - no matter the situation.
Supermercados Covirán, the second-largest food distributor in Spain, has been a cooperative of food retailers servicing Spain, Portugal and surrounding areas since 1961. The cooperative needed a solution to help them make the successful transition from primarily a cash-and-carry operating model to distribution. With a logistics partner, the co-op explored more efficient picking support technologies and chose Honeywell Voice and its rugged and ergonomic headsets, microphones and intelligent voice synthesizers. The move enabled its DC workers to enjoy hands-free, eyes-free picking while providing the technology infrastructure to support the company’s new business model.
