E-commerce DCs are challenged to fulfill thousands of orders with ever-shrinking lead times. The trend for next-day and even same-day deliveries is increasing, and the rapid growth of online sales across many sectors means that large quantities of small orders must be handled daily. In addition, customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance, which means error-free picking is vital. A high proportion of customer returns must also be processed.
As a result, today’s warehouses are facing in-creased pressure to handle rising operational costs, linked to a lack of available workforce, intensive training of operators, expanding ranges of SKUs (stock keeping units), and later cut-off times. Fulfilling thousands of orders, handling returns and delivering a positive cus-tomer experience are vital.
