Despite a difficult geopolitical situation worldwide, WITRON succeeded in increasing its record sales of 2022 by a further 8.34 percent to 1.3 billion EUR in 2023. The number of employees across the Group grew from 5,900 to 7,000 staff members.

News from the ideas room

In WITRON’s ideas room, you will find many different topics around logistics. For us, the ideas room is a knowledge platform. It was launched in 2019. There, our guests discuss about technology, processes, digitalization, and management topics with the editorial staff or WITRON managers. Scientists as well as many international customers of WITRON talk about their experiences. Migros, Asko, or Spar report on their logistics strategies.

In addition, suppliers are also always part of the round table discussions. The posts are enriched with podcasts, infographics, videos, and surveys. The ideas room is thus a multimedia platform for retail logistics that does not yet exist in this form. If you would like to be part of the ideas room yourself, please contact our marketing department. We are always looking forward to exciting logistics topics. Important to us: The focus is not on products, but on strategies and technologies.

Expanding a highly dynamic multi-temperature logistics center for roughly 1,200 stores during ongoing operations with an increase in pick performance by more than 30 percent daily, is a tremendous challenge as such. But when, in addition, store and online orders continue to soar due to various lockdowns and the teams are only allowed to work with severe limitations because of Covid 19 restrictions, then a lot more than just technical and organizational knowledge is needed on both sides for the project to succeed. WITRON and the food retailer COOP from Norway have demonstrated this impressively.

Helmut Prieschenk from WITRON and Franziskos Kyriakopoulos, founder of 7LYTIX from Linz (Austria), discuss ChatGPT, machine learning in logistics, and demand forecasting for food retailers. Both agree. AI technology offers a wide range of optimization potential - also for optimizing processes in the distribution center as well as the entire supply chain. But high data quality is not the only crucial factor. Equally important for the data models are the experiences of people and the requirements of consumers.
