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  • Revamping outdated systems.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.

Message from CEO Alex Lutskiy on COVID-19
To all Innovecs employees, clients, and partners As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to develop and affect people globally, I want to personally update you on the steps Innovecs is taking to maintain our business operations and ensure the health and safety of our staff. We remain committed to ensuring the superior service our clients have come to expect from us. We monitor the situation closely and remain watchful to the recommendations of government and public health authorities. Our R&D teams, as well as all other employees, continue to work remotely, and we are ready to adjust the measures in response to changing quarantine circumstances. We have established a special COVID-19 team within senior management to respond to the ever-changing impact of the coronavirus and to protect employees’ health and safety. We have also set up regular online meetings to keep up to date and plan activities so that we could advise our customers and coordinate our teams accordingly. And we continue to provide our internal and external audiences with the relevant webinars and online events with regard to the new world order. To combat the spread of the disease in Ukraine, Innovecs has created the “Innovecs COVID-19 Fund” in the amount of 1,500,000 (one million and a half) hryvnias. The fund is directed to support the initiatives that fight coronavirus, as well as to ensure the safety of the company’s employees and their families. As part of this initiative, Innovecs purchases and installs an oxygen pipeline system at one of the Kyiv hospitals. This is a challenging period for everyone, and the situation is changing rapidly, but Innovecs is responding to it with unity, as a company, and as a team. I believe that when we stand together through moments that bring uncertainty and seem dark, we come out even stronger in the end.  Thank you for your patience and attention throughout this stressful time. As an employer and a partner, Innovecs is confident in our business continuity plan and our ability to provide support to our clients and staff. It is my sincere hope that our efforts and those of businesses, communities, and governments will empower the containment of the coronavirus and enable a speedy recovery for people around the world. In the meantime, let’s stay safe and help others keep safe too.   Sincerely, Alex Lutskiy Innovecs CEO & Founder
