Pressure is on the order fulfillment process, as continued growth in e-commerce and business strategies, such as omni-channel, take hold. What does this mean for warehouses and distribution centers?

Namely, it means an increase in SKUs and number of orders with fewer and fewer lines. This means that unless you are a pure e-tailer, your operation wasn’t likely designed to handle a high frequency of smaller orders with only a few items and one to two units per line. This disparity could affect output and productivity, which no shipping operation wants!

There are ways to handle these demands with the consideration of:

  • Order management modifications
  • Process/method changes
  • Advanced product slotting techniques
  • Use of storage and handling automation
  • Upgraded packaging solutions
This webinar will explore the various solutions to consider when faced with these types of order profiles. Whether you were set up from the start to handle this increase or your business is now migrating to more SKUs, more orders, fewer lines per order, and one to two units per line, this interactive webinar will be the roadmap you need to maximize output and productivity in the face of these changes
