Asia Pacific: Logistics warehouse staff work hands-free

Silk Contract Logistics has deployed Zebra Technologies’ voice-directed warehouse picking solution to enhance its worker productivity and competitive advantage.

Silk Contract Logistics operates across a range of sectors, including retail and fast-moving consumer goods, light industrial and food and dairy, providing a tailored approach to wharf cartage, warehousing and distribution.

It has 21 warehouses in Australia and deploys Zebra’s warehousing solutions with support from PartnerConnect Premier Solution partner Skywire.

The Enterprise Asset Intelligence solutions that the third-party logistics company deploys include Zebra’s mobile printers, and wearable computers equipped with voice-directed picking software TekSpeech Pro, a multi-modal voice solution.

These solutions are aimed at helping the logistics firm increase offerings to its customers, provide better safety to staff, improve functionality and efficiency, and enhance its service profile for its clients’ future use.

“With Zebra’s wearable technology and voice-directed TekSpeech Pro software, our staff are now able to adopt a ‘hands-free’ approach on the warehouse floor – increasing accuracy and improving safety during the picking process,” Says Matt Hannah, chief information officer, Silk Contract Logistics.
