MANUFACTURING & DISTRIBUTION
Manufacturing and wholesale distribution companies continue to face many operational and logistical challenges as they compete in a competitive global marketplace. Costs, such as energy and transportation, impact efficiency and profitability. They must maintain large distribution networks across state and international borders, driving companies to remain adept in ever-changing and complex regulations. Manufacturing entities must upgrade their operational platforms to remain competitive and reduce costs. The use of automation provides a method for promoting productivity and efficiency.
