—————— Interview with: Samuele Mistrello
Business unit E-logistic Sitma
nowadays, we hear people talking more and more about e-Logistics: let us see exactly what it means. It is two different, but very closely connected things: logistics, an administrative technique for moving properties, and everything to do with on-line sales, which we refer to as e-commerce.
—————— Our business unit at Sitma
Our business unit at Sitma deals with e-Logistics for a new market, broad, diversified, and expanding very strongly. The methods used by modern consumers to purchase goods is causing great impact on the consolidated balance of markets. On-line sales, whether electronics or books, via wide consumption items such as clothes and cosmetics, provide great opportunities for the supply sector.
Goods deliveries are growing at somewhere between 15 and 20% per year at a global level, trend that involves mainly small sizes packages with shapes difficult to manage. There are many different players on this stage, from postal services to couriers, from holding warehouses to on-line stores (e-tailers). Everything requires increasingly innovative and interconnected solutions for the proper management (e-fulfilment) of orders, from purchase to final delivery. Identifying, tracking, packaging, and delivering goods in an automatic and controlled way requires avant-garde technology, and these developments are becoming faster and faster and need to integrate properly with automation and data transfer systems.
