The e-commerce revolution offers huge growth potential. However, this also means that your warehouse can reach its limits much sooner than expected. E-commerce and omni-channel warehouses face increasing pressure to tackle rising operational costs. These arise from increasing customer requirements, such as the demand for fast order delivery. In addition, increasing storage requirements, expanding SKU ranges (stock keeping units) and dealing with variable order sizes can be serious challenges, as well as a lack of available workforce.
To keep up with an exponentially growing market, scalable solutions are vital. As part of our next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions – Vanderlande offers FASTPICK, which seamlessly integrates innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services.
High operator efficiency and easily scalable for unpredictable growth requirements
