"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.
