Intralogistics: what is it and why is it important?
When we hear about logistics, we think of transport, product delivery, among others, but behind these processes there is intralogistics, capable of optimizing the entire supply chain management. This is an activity that is still little known, but it is a strategy that all companies must adopt, in order not to commitment the development of other processes.
Intralogistics is also known as in-house logistics, it covers the movement of materials within the domains of the same corporation, that is, it includes the movement of products in warehouses, manufacturing units and distribution centers involved in the company’s logistics.
It aims to ensure the synchronous operation of the distribution of all inputs necessary for the operation to function, becoming a process that aims to control the entire flow of storage of materials and products that the company has. Thus, it is possible to meet the needs of employees and offer them the best working conditions, ensuring better quality of the final product.
With the use of automation, intralogistics manages and integrates all the steps involved in material handling, thus, your company’s productivity guarantees better results. The integration between data processing and product handling makes the service system more efficient and uses a more correct way of allocating equipment and labor.
This activity goes beyond the use of technological tools to better improve the flow of materials. It also guides the organization’s employees in relation to the stages of receiving, collecting and sending products, storage, packaging, and classification of goods.
Good management software guarantees the analysis of any activity carried out in a shed, thus regulating the performance of procedures and obtaining efficiency in the development of activities.
In addition to the ability to streamline processes and promote the best use of time, intralogistics offers more benefits.
