The solution we were looking for – according to B FASHION - had to comply with the high complexity arising from a great variety of customers, industries, volume, distribution channels and specific technologies such as automation, RFID and pick-to-light.
The WMS seamlessly integrates with sorters by combining each cell of the on-shelf-sorter and each pipe of the on-hanger-sorter with their destination point and further - prior to any packaging operation - it requires the confirmation that what has been prepared matches what was supposed to.
Thanks to the integration between the WMS and the courier’s ERPs (20 national couriers) packages are marked directly with the courier’s label: this is a significant improvement for us because - as a consequence of our considerable outbound volume – packages ready for dispatch are directly taken to the central hub without transiting through local hubs anymore.
This provides much more precision - as errors are strongly reduced - and faster deliveries.
In this plant we manage also the reverse-logistics: returns coming from the shops are refurbished and processed to restore the same quality they had in the production-line and be once again available via both the retail and wholesale distribution channels.
