Day of the drones dawns for DSV

[ November 17, 2020   //   ]

DSV is implementing an autonomous drone system in several of its warehouses to help manage inventory. It replaces manual barcode scans which, besides being an unsafe and arduous task, often result in inventory data not being up to date due to discrepancies.

DSV and tech specialist  Verity have tested the system at DSV’s Moerdijk warehouse in the Netherlands.

The pilot showed that manual counts can be avoided to a large extent and that inventory data becomes virtually error-free and DSV is now planning to  roll out the system into more of its warehouses.
