Intelligent Warehousing & IoT Drives Retail E-commerce
With the rapid development of e-commerce, the logistics industry is now under the spotlight, attracting the attention of various venture capitalists . By 2020, the market size of China’s automated logistics system is expected to cross 100 billion yuan, and the growth rate is forecasted to remain above 15 percent for the next few years. Amazon acquired Kiva Systems for USD 775 million, while JD.com ploughed money into its own warehouses. It is necessary for logistics companies to have a comprehensive intelligent logistics system, with independent intellectual property rights. A complete hardware system typically consists of conveyor equipment, storage equipment, loading and picking equipment, re-batching equipment, re-binning equipment, packaging equipment and sorting equipment.
Leading intelligent packaging and logistics equipment manufacturers will showcase the latest intelligent packaging equipment, robotics and logistics equipment according to the theme of the exhibition. The theme pavilion will be located in the same area along with “SAVE FOOD”, “FMCG Future Zone”, “Printing Packaging” and “Components Zone”, which are the five major theme pavilions of swop. This year the exhibition area at swop 2019 will expanded to more than 50,000 square meters, covering N1-N5 exhibition halls of the Shanghai New International Expo Center. Nearly 1,000 exhibitors will gather under one umbrella, recognizing swop as a major event of the year, for the packaging industry.
E-commerce Packaging Automation Delivers Low-cost Personalized Packaging
According to e-commerce statics of 2017, the nationwide e-commerce transaction volume reached 2.916 billion yuan; up 11.7 percent from the same period the previous year. With the rapid development of e-commerce logistics, the product packaging industry is flourishing simultaneously. However, as manual packaging operations have been unable to meet the requirements of providing large quantities of product packaging in terms of efficiency and accuracy, automatic packaging lines are emerging at the right time. Integrated with carton forming, automatic boxing and automatic sealing; automatic packaging lines achieve unmanned packaging with front-end automated production lines. According to data released by the Italian Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Association, the annual output of the global packaging technology and packaging industry in terms of value, has reached around USD 40 billion; 60 percent of which comes from the food and beverage industry, followed by pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products. Automated packaging can be customized and manufactured according to customers’ different packaging requirements.
