Verizon and Microsoft Azure: Enabling automation at warehouses
Launched in 2021, Verizon’s private mobile edge computing for enterprises with Microsoft Azure has already made an impact on companies like Ice Mobility, a logistics and supply chain solutions provider.

The company is now exploring additional 5G applications that leverage computer vision and 5G Edge investments to provide automation enhancements along the supply chain, such as near real-time activity-based costing. This solution would allow them to assign overhead and indirect costs to specific customer accounts, pick and pack lines, and warehouse activities to enhance efficiencies and improve competitiveness.
