We know that people are the main cost in the warehouse and that tech is often considered an alternative to people. Gary Twynholm, from Link Logistics Services, is a former Global Logistics Manager with Mountain Warehouse and will bring the experience has has gained in many warehouse installations to bear on the issue of how technology can help redefine the role of people in the warehouse. After all, happy people boosts retention and slashes recruitment costs.
