Supply chains with stronger connections.

Panasonic Connect combines our global reputation for technology with a century of expertise, focusing it on supply chain solutions such as SMT machine, cold chain, sensors, software and robotics. All to deliver turnkey solutions within your existing infrastructure.

An integrated approach.

When a technology company offers you ‘innovative solutions’ that can mean having to re-invent your own systems. Panasonic Connect is different. We’ll analyse your current technology and processes, then shape and structure our solutions in a flexible way to suit. Always ensuring they fit with, say, your existing software, or the physical structure of your site. Working with you, we’ll integrate our technology, products and solutions and consult with your personnel, to deliver connected, end-to-end supply chains. 

Services that speak your language.

Panasonic Connect is a network of local experts who not only talk your language, they understand your industry, pain points and want to help you achieve your goals. That’s why we’re much more than software or hardware providers, we bring you complete, bespoke solutions for your territory, your market and your business.

Linking back over 100 years.

How do we know so much about supply chains? Because we’ve been making products, creating technology and solving problems for over 100 years. Today, you’ll find our solutions across more than 500 manufacturing sites – which means we not only understand supply chains, we’ve created much of the technology that makes them work more efficiently and more cost-effectively. 

Right now, your own supply chain is probably facing the same issues as those of your competitors. Too few personnel. Too much pressure to increase efficiency while reducing cost. Customers and stakeholders who expect you to be environmentally responsible. 

To keep ahead of them, Panasonic Connect allows you combine what you have now, with what you need to go forward. We’re here to help you balance technology with people, to create effective, resilient supply chains.

Where our expertise connects with yours.

Better production quality, uninterrupted delivery, enhanced customer experience – whatever result you’re looking for from improvements to your supply chain, Panasonic has the experience, expertise and people to help you achieve it, in three main areas. 

Manufacturing supply chains.

Maximising productivity while minimising operating expenses and waste – it’s every company’s dream. By helping you make Industry 4.0 a reality, Panasonic Connect makes that possible. 

Logistics supply chains.

With your customers demanding higher delivery volumes at a lower price, we make it our job to help you deliver with speed, accuracy and right-first-time performance. 

Retail supply chains.

From increasing your standards of customer service to reducing human error, our retail technology solutions are designed to allow you to manage your supply chain more effectively. 

Consult with us.

We don’t try to solve your issues, remotely, from some far-off corporate business centre. We visit your site in person. Talk to your people. Look into where time may be being lost. We have the visual systems expertise and technology to be able to monitor your people’s movements and see where efficiencies can be gained, costs reduced – and your carbon footprint made lighter. 

End to End Supply Chain Visibility and Management.

Connecting you to the supply chain experts.

A supply chain is only as good as each individual link. That’s why we integrated two of the world-leaders in supply chain solutions – Blue Yonder and Zetes – into our own business. By harmoniously working together as one team, you’re always assured of a robust and intelligent supply chain platform and ultra-strong links between products, processes and people.

Blue Yonder.

As the global authority in end-to-end, digital supply chain management, our Blue Yonder team allows you to capture critical, valuable data at almost every stage of every process, and translate it into platforms that give you end-to-end visibility of your whole supply chain.


Goods identification and people identification are two sides of the same coin. In both cases, our team at Zetes’ are on a mission to connect the physical world with the digital world – and unlock greater business performance by increasing agility, visibility and traceability in your connected supply chain.

Businesses who have already benefitted.

Continental is one of the world’s biggest automotive suppliers. The company is focused on creating a fully automated supply chain ­– combining people and technology – by 2030. As a major stage in making this a reality, the task for Panasonic was delivering a process upgrade that would streamline operations and improve efficiency. Our solution was a redesign of the unloading area, automation of previously physical processes, and the installation of Panasonic’s Visual Sort Assist. The result was the complete elimination of time-consuming searches by Continental’s goods-receiving personnel.

Gemba Process Innovation.

The Japanese word, Gemba translates, literally, to ‘the actual place.’ For your business, that means the site where value is created or where issues must be resolved. The Panasonic Gemba Process Innovation teams’ expertise is in recognising and understanding your challenges, then working with you and your people to re-evaluate each area where core operations occur. They will then connect the ‘physical’ with the ‘digital’, helping people and technology to come together, to continuously improve your processes and outputs. Vital when you’re being asked to deliver more, with fewer resources.

Helping you reach your sustainability targets.

From fewer truck journeys for logistics companies, to energy saving solutions on factory floors. There are many obvious ways Panasonic Supply Chain Solutions can lower your environmental impact. But there are some surprising methods too. Innovations such as our Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs) not only eliminate pricing errors by retail staff, they also dramatically lower retailers’ dependency on paper labels. Find out more about the different ways Panasonic can help you take sustainability seriously and improve your green credentials.
