Exel, part of the supply-chain division of Deutsche Post DHL Group, will replace handheld scanners with Google Glass, fitted with a warehouse management software in two US warehouses later this year, Wall Street Journal reported.

“The technology like Google Glass could prove especially useful during peak periods when Exel hires thousands of temporary workers,” Adrian Kumar, vice-president for solutions design with Exel, was quoted as saying.

“These are people off the street who are not familiar with our warehouses, do not know where anything is, and we see huge potential for that type of situation, especially with training,” Kumar said.

Google Glass will tell warehouse workers the fastest route to find products and can read bar codes.

It will reduce the time needed to pick out an item and pack it for shipping.

“The technology has the most application in e-commerce warehouses where workers might need to find a handful of items out of more than a million individual products,” DHL Group said.
