E-commerce within your warehouse
On April 15th, the yearly WMS-event was organized in ‘s- Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. Wendel Dijker provided insight in: How to organize e-commerce within your warehouse?
Inventory is increasingly located at several different links in the chain. Therefore, cross-docking and consolidating products from different locations is becoming ever-more important, as is mass customization and assemble-to-order. Furthermore, short response times are required, and a firmer grip on the growing flow of returns.
All these developments are related to e-commerce and will – and must – ultimately have an effect on the logistics within – and hence the design of – your warehouse and/or distribution center. The presentation called “How to organize e-commerce within your warehouse” (Dutch version) explores how the responses to these developments affect how your (e-commerce) warehouse is designed, which parameters there are, and how these influence your decisions about the warehouse concept and storage system.
