Smart warehousing continues to advance - particularly for larger strorage supply-demand chain facilities. Such embedded digital, real-time AI engagement storage solutions often involve intelligent autonomous place, track, pack resource orchestration solutions targeting towards direct multi-consumer and marketplace rapid distributions, and into the future further linking towards retailing. This literature researched paper frames a research agenda to determine the relative smart warehousing pathway effects of supply side input competencies and of demand side actioned interactive capabilities in determining the sustainability of intelligent, lower-cost warehousing into the immediate future.
