Merchandise is typically stored in various places – in commissioning or replenishment storage, in a central location, in outlets or at suppliers and shipping companies. Arrivals are collected in single- or two-stage processes and can be added to existing article storage or newly distributed chaotically. Special storage of faulty stocks or virtual stocks.
Picking strategies and collective picking
The optimization of commissioning specifically selects orders with route-optimized picking. Dynamic collective documents can be preset in different sizes.
Especially with textiles and clothing, high rates of returns occur. Here, an acquisition that is optimized for speed will help. Two-stage re-storage of the returned articles using the fast mover zone brings the returns back to dispatch as fast as possible.
Mobile devices support inventory control and offer the highest transparency thanks to online bookings at the time of goods transfer.
