Third-party logistics, automotive, and food & beverages industries drive the growth of warehouse management system market

Third-Party Logistics:
With the rise in demand for 3PL services, companies are handling huge inventory on a daily basis. Further, the complexity of operating a 3PL facility, particularly one that serves multiple clients, has accelerated. The implementation of WMS in the 3PL industry is vital to efficiently handle inventory and orders. WMS can seamlessly handle overlapping of inventory. These systems can also effortlessly handle any overlapping of sales orders or purchase orders, thereby saving hours required for manual data entry.

The after-sales service market for the automotive industry is witnessing tremendous growth opportunities owing to the high number of vehicles sold worldwide and the increasing need for periodic maintenance. In recent times, provision of efficient after-sales services adds value to the final products as it influences customers to buy products of certain brands. Provision of an efficient after-sales service requires uninterrupted supply of essential spare parts and components, such as engine parts, suspensions, tires, electronic components, and brake pads. These spare parts are not necessarily being manufactured at same locations and are required to be transported both at assembly facilities and service outlets for customers to buy replacements. WMS plays a major role in making the inventory available at warehouses and transporting it to distribution centers as per customer requirements.

Food & Beverages:
With the increasing concern about food safety and quality among customers, it becomes necessary for food & beverages companies to keep a track of the sources of food products and to ensure food quality while these are being transported. Several governments worldwide have come-up with regulations to ensure superior quality of packaged food & beverages. Regulations such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) by the US federal government, Safe Food for Canadians by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), and General Food Law of the European Union have been adopted by food & beverages companies to ensure freshness and integrity of food items.
