One of the most important goals of logistic companies worldwide, in addition to increasing performance and attracting new customers, is to reduce warehousing expenses. And how could this be achieved without the automation and computerization of all existing processes in the warehouse?
With the help of a warehouse management solution, logistic companies can pursue several objectives:
- Reduction reception / delivery time and related services
- Reducing the number of errors
- Making the most of the available storage space
- Route optimization
- Optimizing the activity of the personnel in the warehouse
To optimize the reception process, there are bar codes, handheld devices and the WMS system which will automatically retrieve the information contained in the bar codes about the received goods. In this way, the reception time is reduced and so are the possible human errors that can occur during the manual receptions. All these generate savings.
Once arrived in the warehouse, the merchandise must be arranged so that the employees can find it anything they need when preparing the orders. WMS (Warehouse Management System) creates and controls the workflows within the warehouse. In this way, storage costs are reduced because the WMS offers solutions for efficient use of space, suggesting available cells or rows and calculating the best storage ways based on user input data.
