Warehousing plays a very vital role in promoting agriculture marketing, rural banking and financing and ensuring Food Security in the country. About 80% handling and warehousing facilities are not mechanized and traditional manual methods for loading, unloading and handling of food grains and other commodities are used.
A principal requirement for controlling the warehouse is harnessing the power of technology to maximize a facility’s potential. The emerging new technologies are creating strategic opportunities for the organizations to build competitive advantages in various functional areas of management including logistics and supply chain management. However the degree of success depends on the selection of the right technology for the application, availability of proper organizational infrastructure, culture and management policies.
