Analyst Report Analyst Report Methodology Article

Amazingly, warehouses are operating as if it’s still the 1950s. A manager walks around the facility with a clipboard to count boxes. If the manager sees a shortage, they call up a packaging company to place an order. The manager then fills out a form and schedules a time for delivery.

This process can take days to complete. Oh my.

Talk about inefficiency.

Arka, the company I’m introducing to you today, is the first company to create a solution to automate the packaging reorder process for third party logistics (3PL) companies.
