Enter Honeywell Intelligrated’s Connected Distribution Center —
a new initiative that blends the strength of our portfolios to deliver integrated solutions for
modern order fulfillment operations. To succeed in today’s challenging retail market, higher
degrees of connectivity are needed within the four walls of distribution centers and across
the enterprise. DC operations must be optimized to seamlessly orchestrate workers and
workflows with machine automation.
Combining mobile-enabled workflow solutions for DC workers and material handling
equipment expertise, the Connected Distribution Center ensures predictable performance
by minimizing system downtime and maximizing throughput and accuracy. Here’s how:
• Seamless material handling system integration automates the movement of goods,
including: conveyors, sortation and fork lifts — regardless of which WCS/ WES/ WMS
system is used.
• Robust, mobile-enabled workflow solutions for DC workers — for processes such as
receiving, stocking, picking and packing — drive order fulfillment productivity and
• Internet-of-Things (IOT) connectivity, advanced sensing capabilities and productivity
soft ware generate predictive analytics and deliver valuable insights.
• Ergonomic- and safety-based solutions ensure worker well-being, increase morale and
improve retention — because we know that 43% of DC execs state that employee turnover
is one of their biggest challenges, and that low morale is a contributing factor.
Honeywell Intelligrated believes that a connected distribution center is a more productive,
efficient and cost-effective one. Given the opportunity, we’ll help you connect workers to
purpose-driven workflows, connect transactional data to information systems, and connect
your DC to inbound and outbound links to the supply chain. To learn more about our new

The e-commerce train has showed no signs of slowing down in 2017. On the contrary, retailers
saw the growth of online order volumes triple compared to wider industry growth rates. With this
escalation in order volumes comes the ongoing proliferation of SKUs and increasingly demanding
service level agreements. To deal with this complexity, distribution centers need to enhance process
rigor, maximize worker productivity and achieve true visibility of in-process order fulfillment.
