The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly accelerated already explosive growth in the e-commerce retail market share. A large ecosystem of warehouse refurbishment management software providers, new as a service companies, and logistics providers are expanding rapidly to meet this demand. However, attention to decarbonization has not kept pace with sector growth, especially in warehousing-a major source of carbon emissions in e-commerce. New and more efficient technologies are available to reduce energy intensity in this area, leading to operational and energy savings opportunities, and ultimately more sustainable e-commerce growth. Although automation has been developing in e-commerce for some time, its application specifically as decarbonization intervention is still nascent.
The following technologies affect the current and future energy intensity of e-commerce operations. These technologies are included in decarbonizing solutions in e-commerce warehousing (DSEW): next-generation warehouse management systems (WMSs) with on-cloud capabilities, improved autonomous fixed and mobile robots, Internet of Things (IoT) technology, and high bandwidth Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity. Together, these technologies facilitate a new level of warehouse operation efficiency and energy load control and help retailers effectively repurpose existing space.
This ‘Guidehouse Insights report’ provides participants in industrial verticals with an overview of WMS technology applied to e-commerce and its newest hardware, software, and related services applications. The report aims to provide an understanding of important market and technology developments and how they affect decarbonization and market participants. All major global regions are included, and market forecasts for the technologies covered extend through 2030.
