Zebra modernizes warehouse processes in both Europe and the US
An interview with Lester Arts, operations manager of Zebra Technologies in Heerenveen (NL), and Gary Meekma, warehouse operations manager of Zebra Technologies in Vernon Hills (USA) by Marcel te Lindert.
Zebra made the strategic decision to switch to an Oracle ERP system in all of its facilities, including its two central distribution centres (DCs) in Europe and the US.
As part of the project, the company, which manufactures barcode printers and labels, enlisted Groenewout’s support in critically assessing the existing working methods in its DCs. The result: higher productivity and better control of the processes.
