Smart Logistics Technologies main visual

In cooperation with various companies and research institutions, including the ones in the Hitachi Group, we have been conducting joint studies on how to visualize and improve warehouse operations efficiency, how to pick an optimal location of your logistics base or design its floor plan, and so on.

We at the HTS Group will challenge ourselves for further logistics innovation, as we continue collaborating with our customers and partners for additional value creation, leveraging our smart logistics technologies.

Three Things to Know about Our Smart Logistics Technologies

Automation

Automation

To counter labor shortage and improve work quality, we are accelerating our automation strategically. We are actively not only deploying automated storage systems, auto-sort machines, and such new automation devices as AGVs and other robots, but also participating in joint development with manufacturers of such equipment.

Sophisticating WMS

Sophisticating WMS

We are aiming to create an universal environment where anyone can work efficiently. By applying artificial intelligence and mathematical optimization techniques to our WMS (warehouse management system), we can automatically produce optimal work instructions. In addition, smart glass, glove scanner work navigation, and hands-free systems lead to the improvement of work efficiency and its quality.
