Solar energy requires massive first installation charges that would crush any kind of economic funding. However solar energy is cheap and reliable and would really work out pretty well in the grand scheme of things to come (smart cities).

For Warehouse lighting, LED's can be used, because they produce an excess of 300 lumens which is adequate for warehouses although many such LED's would have to be installed, and LED's are costlier than fluorescent lights but cut down energy wastes considerably.

"Apart from use of solar energy , LED lighting is also another power saving measure one can take for warehouses. "

Prabhakar, you are right. There are many methods for energy saving. Spot light suing the LED is best among them.

Apart from use of solar energy , LED lighting is also another power saving measure one can take for warehouses. 

For optimizing on distance to travel for final deliveries can be optimized by  using software to optimally cobin the delivery of multiple items to multiple parties enroute to minimise the transport costs.

 

One more measure which I think of is whereever possible if deliveries can be made directly from the manufacturing base to the customer without having to bring the goods to the warehouse is another way of saving on transport and handling.

 

Good HVAC systems can save a lot in climate control in the warehouses.

In years to come, going green will be the necessary option.Solar energy has to be utilized in full form. One can see enormous direct savings if you switch over to solar. Now these solar devices are availabel in so attractive finish and quite economical too. I am planning to make an alternative arrangement for my house lighting using solar.

For all the doom and gloom surrounding the supply chain talent shortage, there has hardly been a better time to be a college graduate or self-motivated professional in this industry.
Consumer demand and corporate commitment have spurred a flood of new innovations in sustainable packaging, taking what was once a novel concept into the mainstream.
Only 7% of companies use on-demand packaging, but the search for more cost-efficient solutions in the face of multi-channel distribution should fuel the rapid rise of this new technology.
Multi-channel distribution has resulted in increased levels of automation, but issues like implementation costs and the challenge of combining new and old technologies will need to be overcome.
