Home Delivery World 2019 (HDW19) is over and we are happy to share our representative’s insights on the event.

This year, Gary González, Executive Vice President of Innovecs USA, attended HDW19 and met with other attendees to share his vision across logistics software development.

Gary’s insights. At the event, Gary González discussed the following types of challenges that Innovecs can address:

  • Pallet loading automation. This also includes topics such as multi-pallets loading and palletizing of non-homogeneous items.
  • Warehousing automation. Image recognition can deal with outliers detected during warehouse loading, such as catching missing barcodes, automating alerts, and much more.
  • Monitor and manage inventory and delivery in real-time, with complex software that is able to see to the needs of retailers, carriers, and end customers. For instance, consumers may want to change the delivery location and time during any delivery stage. Carriers, in turn, need to improve the efficiency of their drivers to reduce costs.
  • Integration of the various services and parties into one ecosystem. Since there are usually many parties engaged in the delivery process, with different hands-on solutions, software development companies can help with their transformation and integration.
  • Revamping outdated systems. When companies increase in their size, would like to integrate new technologies or update their solutions, third-party developers like Innovecs can help with the overhaul.

Trends learned from the event. Since 2013, when the event first happened, the number of visitors, as well as the event format, have both grown. This year, 2,785 attendees visited the event, and the narrative has evolved from last-mile delivery and e-commerce to the goods segment. For instance, parcel, heavy goods, and grocery have been allocated in separate streams.

Why is this getting so much attention? Heavy goods are a new type of parcel. The youth of today expects to receive heavy goods as quickly as small goods. Attempts to meet these demands lead to an enormous increase in logistics costs. Another challenge discussed at the conference is the shipping of non-durables. Manufacturers are unlikely to transport such goods across the country and choose short-hauls from the department store to the nearby residence instead. This may cause a discrepancy between capacities and demand.

If you didn’t attend HDW19 but feel you need help with your logistics and supply chain software, don’t hesitate to contact Gary.

Innovecs is a global company, we have two large offices in Ukraine located in Kyiv and Mykolayiv.

Someone hospitably opens the door to migrants, makes dumplings for soldiers in the defense, someone donates to the army, and seeks options to buy bulletproof vests and medical kits for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Someone performs DDoS attacks on Russian sites and is waging an active war on the information front. Some advise and provide psychological assistance, some treat and organize humanitarian convoys free of charge. Innovecs, like hundreds of others, has joined the financial support of the army. We also organized additional fundraising for each team member who wanted to donate money to support the army. Of course, Innovecsers help not only with funding, but also volunteer. Today we will share some stories of our team members who chose their “battlefront” during the war with Russia.
