Cleaning Tomorrow’s Industry Warehouse:Report: Partner Partner Opinion
Innovative Design and Build Solutions
CopriSystems’ bespoke vision enables businesses to respond quickly to any changes in the
market be it a seasonal spike or global health emergency.
Where once the role of a warehouse may have
been slightly overlooked and neglected, it is
now the strategic hub of any ecommerce
business. The pressure on space and infrastructure is
ever-present, particularly during peaks in customer
behaviour and in accommodating new technology, but
in recent months the coronavirus has taken this to
another level entirely.
CopriSystems are able to adapt quickly to build
temporary or permanent structures that can cope with
increased stock flow, complex logistics and new social
distancing requirements, as well as allow for innovation
and future progression.
Safety is undoubtedly a huge concern for warehouses
right now, but the biggest challenge appears to be
trying to keep up with unprecedented consumer
demand. The retail landscape has changed beyond all
recognition and our customers are reporting sales
increases of up to 120%. Price has been overtaken by
time-to-delivery and fulfilment responsiveness as the
leading competitor advantages. As a result, we are
getting many enquiries from online retailers looking to
increase their distribution capacity so they can continue
to honour their next day delivery promise.
Whatever the challenge and whenever it arises,
there’s no question that warehouses need to be
constantly reviewing their operations process to ensure
it is streamlined, as efficient as possible and has room to
Automation is a key trend that is only going to be
fast-tracked in light of current circumstances with new
robotic and process technology driving higher levels of
productivity, improving accuracy and enhancing safety.
From digitising inventory data collection and wireless
barcode scanners to robotic picker systems and load-carrying
robots, the advances in warehouse automation
can significantly boost efficiency and free up human
resources to focus on more high-value activities that
require direct customer interaction.
While this is all positive, it does put pressure on
existing supply chains and more space could be
required to make navigation an easier process for
robots and machinery. Adaptability and space
optimisation have therefore become a key factor for us
in creating new building designs. After all, technology
can only work if you have the room to bring it in and
deploy it effectively.
It’s our job to move into the future with new trends
and we understand there is no one-size-fits-all model.
This is where our expertise in creating bespoke
solutions really comes into its own. Our structures are
carefully and individually designed to lead a dynamic
