How does a WMS for e-commerce work?

  • Reception. Operators identify products as they arrive at the warehouse. The system sorts and bundles them into groups from the list of open customer orders:
    - Single-unit orders.
    - Multi-unit orders.
    - Items to store.
  • Storage. Items that must be stored are assigned a location in the racks.
  • Picking. The system manages order fulfilment as per the assigned group.
    Single-unit orders (cross-docking): items that comprise single-unit orders are moved directly to the packing and dispatch area.
    Multi-unit orders: products are sent to a just-in-time order prep area. The system triggers the tasks required to complete the order.
  • Packaging. The order is packed and the Multi Carrier Shipping module identifies it with a carrier-specific label.
  • Dispatch. The system reports that the order is finalised and ready for distribution and delivery. Simultaneously, it provides the customer with an online tracking number.
