Warehousing plays a vital role in the supply chain process. In today’s industry, the demands and expectations of the customers are undergoing a tremendous change. We want everything at our doorstep – that too with an efficient price. We can say that the management of warehousing functions demands a distinct merging of engineering, IT, human resources and supply chain skills.
To neutralise the efficiency of inbound functions, it is ideal to accept materials in an immediately storable conveyance, like a pallet, case or box. For labelling the structure, tool selection and business process demand the types and quantities of orders that are processed. Further, the number of stock-keeping units (SKU’s) in the distribution centres is a crucial consideration.
The Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) leads the products to their storage location where they should be stored. The required functionality for the completion and optimisation of receiving, storing and shipping functions is then supplied.
