Warehouse Space to Support Emerging Technologies and Continuous
Improvement

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kenco
Logistics
, North America’s leading third-party logistics provider,
today announced plans to open a dedicated physical warehouse space, an
expansion of the Supply Chain Innovation
Lab
which was originally announced in 2015. The 10,000 square foot
space will serve as a true test facility for the Kenco team of
innovation specialists to assess value-added technology and provide
advanced visibility into these solutions. Testing potential supply chain
management solutions and technological advances outside of a live
operation will enhance accuracy, sustainability and improve
implementation speeds for Kenco’s customers.

We are dedicated to leading the digital transformation of the supply
chain,” said Denis Reilly, President and CEO, Kenco Logistic Services.
The Innovation Lab is one example of our commitment to providing
well-vetted cutting-edge technologies to our customers, allowing them to
achieve improved performance and enhanced supply chain value.”

A combination of technology experts and supply chain engineers will
deliver full value insight on this wide range of logistics solutions,
with the scale of the warehouse space allowing all these technologies to
be tested simultaneously.

The first technologies that will be brought into the space include
NextShift Robotics, a fundamentally unique autonomous mobile robotics
solution; Stocked Robotics, a provider of a cloud-based AI platform and
software suite that transforms existing manual fleets of material
handling vehicles into autonomous swarms; LogistiVIEW, an AI and
vision-driven picking software for smart glasses; and WMS software like
JDA and HighJump.

In the logistics industry, experience is the new differentiator and the
opening of the Kenco Innovation Lab facility will only heighten our
industry experience and insight,” said Kristi Montgomery, Vice President
of Innovation at Kenco. “Our work in the Innovation Lab has already
brought value to our customers. This lab facility will provide a formal
space to review, research and promote technology to only further assist
in our goal to provide the greatest insight to our customers.”
