Case study:
80% cost reduction in stocktaking operations

Background

This regional logistics provider provides warehousing, distribution, and sea transport services, and more.

Challenge

Stocktaking is a manual, labour intensive, costly operation. This customer also holds stock for customers, with regular audits. A significant number of precious resources are dedicated to manual stocktaking across all regional warehouses. These repetitive, routine laborious manual tasks can be a drain on human resources.

Solution

By mounting video cameras on forklifts, this customer has replaced manual barcode scanning with an AI based solution which outputs data on shelf and slot contents, by scanning barcodes on shelves and pallets.

The Sentispec Access allows for 50-80% cost reduction in the stock taking operations, whilst reducing labour spent searching for misplaced pallets.

Automated Stock Taking and Stock Audits

With our cameras mounted on trucks and other mobile devices we can drive automated stock taking at a faster pace and with greater consistency and accuracy. This can reduce manual labour costs by as much as 95% by increasing pallet scanning rates from 100 to 3000 per hour.
