What You Will Learn
Do you have what it takes to excel in the e-commerce era? Accommodating e-commerce in your operation will depend on many factors, including your available space, automation, labor pool, technology, material handling equipment and the number and types of items you will be storing, picking and shipping.
In this session, you will learn from the experience of third party logistics providers who have successfully made the switch to accommodate e-commerce and direct-to-consumer fulfillment into their operations. You will learn how to manage higher order volumes, new types of order fulfillment, numerous picking methods, new equipment, warehouse mapping, diversified inventory tracking, cartonization and shipping processes that often accompany a shift in operations.
Learn how key technology solutions will make the transition smoother and will provide the framework for new processes and to incorporate robotics and automation, as well as the end-to-end visibility to provide a clear view of data from the dock door to the customers door, including the ability to track real-time inventory and keep customers updated on order status.
