IT Solutions for Logistics & Warehousing Businesses

The team at Highstream has a broad range of experience but many of the team earned their stripes working in the fast paced and challenging environment that is Warehousing and Logistics which means we are well equipped and ready to offer IT solutions to warehousing facilities and transport operations of all sizes.

When it comes to designing the right infrastructure for a warehousing and logistics client, we understand the importance of taking into account both operational resilience and flexibility for your workspace. It is important that your facility is adaptable in order to support and accommodate a change in workforce or product requirements. One thing is certain in Logistics and that is that the operations and Customer requirements continue to evolve and the IT has to support these changes quickly and efficiently.

For us, a key element of fitting out a warehouse environment is the installation of a reliable wireless network in order to provide seamless connectivity to mobile scan and productivity devices. With this in mind, we are able to recommend solutions that both supports handheld, wearable and voice-driven activities, and also provides sufficient wireless coverage for the entire facility to ensure your business can operate as smoothly as possible.

Additionally, given the huge square footage of many warehouses, it is important to ensure your wireless coverage can adapt dynamically to changing stock levels and material type, providing coverage throughout the facility and successfully competing with the potential interference of nearby wireless access points. Network coverage should also be consistently available to handheld devices, operational workstations, label printers and office PCs, ensuring that all sectors of your business can continue to operate.

Integration of new IT systems with existing third-party/customer systems is often a key requirement. We are experienced in implementing warehouse management systems which support real-time stock availability and operational measurement, as well as integrating with building management and security systems. We partner with IMIO software solutions where appropriate to implement enterprise-grade operational systems which provide logistics businesses with stable control and visibility of their warehouse operations.

From smaller storage environments through to a 479,000 sqft fast-moving consumer goods environment, including COSHH (Care of Substances Hazardous to Health) for aerosol storage and a 474,000 sqft motor parts storage facility, we are fully experienced in confidently recommending the most-suitable IT infrastructure to ensure that it’s business as usual for our clients.
