NouveauxMarchands.com, an e-commerce business specialising in household goods, has optimised operations at its distribution centre in Gémenos, France, with the implementation of Mecalux’s Easy WMS warehouse management system.
Recently installed, Easy WMS controls, coordinates and streamlines the whole range of warehouse flows and operations, including receipt, storage tasks, and dispatch. NouveauxMarchands.com has also acquired three modules that supplement Easy WMS with the aim of minimising errors in every link of its logistics chain.
Firstly, the WMS for e-commerce module is designed to speed up order delivery. The software sorts items as soon as they arrive at the warehouse based on whether they correspond to orders made up of various stock lines (multi-unit) or one line only (single-unit).
Secondly, Multi Carrier Shipping software is the extension of Easy WMS used to manage order packaging and labelling processes. With this system, the company communicates in real time with GLS and Mondial Relay, the transport agencies charged with delivering the parcels to the customers. This module automatically generates the transport label with a tracking number, which allows customers to locate their order at all times.
Lastly, Supply Chain Analytics Software enables this e-commerce retailer to consult and analyse the large volume of data generated by Easy WMS. This module has indicators, outlined in various panels, that facilitate strategic decision-making.
