D P Logistics (Private) Limited, a member of the David Pieris Group of Companies, recently introduced Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to their warehouse operations, in collaboration with D P Infotech (Private) Limited, the Group’s IT arm.

Introduction of RPA to repetitive processes within the warehouse has increased efficiency and streamlined the release of goods and vehicles while reducing dependency on human intervention. This has proven invaluable, particularly in the current pandemic situation, where there are restrictions on the number of persons who can report to work and the need for physical distancing.

Given the challenging business environment both locally and globally, DPL is extremely cognizant of the need to reform business operation to cater to customers’ evolving needs for greater efficiency and cost management.

The newly introduced process automation at D P Logistics has enabled transactional tasks that took approx. 15 minutes processing time, to be carried out in 5 minutes while eliminating the need for human involvement in low value, tedious, repetitive processes.

With RPA, efficiency has been enhanced, business operations improved, costs reduced, and productivity increased. Additionally, employee time has optimized, and order fulfilment and operational data entry processes sped up. Since the quality of overall warehouse management has increased as result, customers can benefit from increased operational value and efficiency and lower handling fees.

Developing mutually rewarding relationships with stakeholders and a reputation as an organisation for commitment and reliability in service excellence, D P Logistics covers the entire spectrum of logistics solutions. Providing customized logistics solutions in transportation, 3PL including warehouse management and freight forwarding, the company consistently exceeds traditional norms in logistics.
