Holman Logistics and OneTrack.AI will present a session entitled “Sci-Fi No More: Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Boost Forklift Safety in the Warehouse” at 9:45 am on Monday, May 2, 2022, at the WERC Annual Conference in Louisville, KY. The Conference is an annual four-day, in-person conference that provides education and networking opportunities for distribution logistics professionals and their suppliers and partners.

With safety as a foundational Core Value, Holman Logistics maintains a goal of zero accidents in its warehouses. Intrigued by benefits AI was producing in the industry, Holman initiated a partnership with OneTrack to leverage their expertise in computer vision and deep learning, also known as Artificial Intelligence (AI).

“Our Core Values set the foundation for the work we do, and we have no more important Core Value than safety. We constantly seek technology, training, and other innovative resources to help us maintain our superior safety performance,” commented Brien Downie, president of Holman Logistics.

Holman and OneTrack initially began working together at Holman multi-client warehouses. Utilizing OneTrack technology, Holman quickly achieved results in forklift safety and productivity that outperformed the existing, non-AI-based, legacy telemetry system, and as a result, the company began using the new AI system at customer locations.

I am confident that these innovative AI tools, along with our never-ending Safety Focus, are helping us move steadily closer to our goal of completely accident-free operations,” Downie concluded.

In addition to the presentation at the WERC Annual Conference, this partnership has also resulted in a white paper published in the Journal of Supply Chain Management in November of 2021 and a finalist slot for the 2021 Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) Supply Chain Innovation Award.
