For each industry, there are specific warehouse logistics requirements that must be taken into account for successful processing. Especially in the electronics industry, logistics can be very complex due to the high-value and fragile products. There are therefore a large number of special features to consider, particularly when selecting warehouses. But what criteria must a warehouse in the electronics industry fulfill?
The electronics industry has become an innovation leader in our high-tech society, which is characterized by digitalization. As the industry is driven by product innovations, it plays a special role in the technical and economic development of society. With a value-added ratio of over 50%, it is one of the most innovative industries in Germany. The electrical industry includes manufacturers of electrical machinery, as well as producers of computers and smartphones, consumer electronics and medical technology. Suppliers of electronic components or batteries are also counted as part of the electronics industry.
Due to the rapid development of technology and the resulting increase in competitive pressure, the demands on decision-makers in the electrical industry are constantly rising. Ever shorter innovation cycles and exponential technology development mean that new market participants are constantly entering the market as competitors. Furthermore, the requirements are increasing due to political and legal influences. These factors lead to intensive cost and time pressure, which must be taken into account when planning logistics processes. Due to the elementary role played by warehouse logistics in corporate processes, it is first important to understand the functions that a warehouse can fulfill in the electrical industry.
The right warehousing of goods is of particular importance in the electronics industry. Especially safe and trained handling with sometimes cost-intensive products is the basis of every good electronics warehouse. Modern IT solutions can also simplify warehouse logistics in this branch.
The basis for successful warehouse handling for both manufacturers and suppliers is always a good understanding of the function that the warehouse has to fulfill, as well as experience in handling the specific products and the industry-specific peculiarities. This experience is essential even before the electronic products are put into storage, where the containers are inspected for damage and suitability of packaging. Here it is important that the warehouse staff is trained in the peculiarities of the products in order to be able to avoid damage at a later stage. Attention must also be paid to the use of suitable handling equipment.
Apart from the right experience and equipment, the scalability of warehouse space plays a major role due to rapidly changing processes. In addition to the size itself, digitalization and an innovative warehouse management system are becoming increasingly important in order to ensure this scalability. Whereas warehouse management systems a few years ago served exclusively to display item inventory and storage location, today's functionalities are moving more and more in the direction of connecting new technologies.
Transparency and data availability are also of great importance: A modern enterprise resource planning system ensures that decision-makers monitor all processes via a single channel. This means that you can access data and read key figures at any time in order to intervene quickly and efficiently in logistics processes to optimize them.
