German company DHL Supply Chain has implemented an integrated supply chain solution for Tetra Pak’s warehouse in Singapore, one of its largest globally. This is the first smart warehouse for DHL in Asia Pacific to deploy the digital twin technology . “By jointly implementing a digital solution to support Tetra Pak’s warehousing and transport operations, this collaboration is a great example for smart warehouses of the future to deliver agile, cost-effective, and scalable supply chain operations,” says Jerome Gillet, CEO of DHL Supply Chain Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines.
To create the twin , the warehouse’s forklift trucks, for example, were equipped with IoT technology and all warehouse data was consolidated and evaluated in a virtual representation. In addition, a DHL control tower monitors the flow of inbound and outbound goods to maintain time efficiency, ensuring goods are correctly shelved within 30 minutes of receipt and delivery-bound goods ready for shipment within 95 minutes.
