Exceed your customers' expectations

Consumers demand speed, accuracy and flexibility throughout the ordering and delivery process. Warehouses face increased pressure to handle rising operational costs linked to a lack of available workforce, intensive training of operators, expanding ranges of SKUs, and variable order sizes with frequent short delivery times. At all times, fulfilling thousands of orders and delivering a positive customer experience are vital. Warehouses must also factor in a combination of both store-friendly and home deliveries.

In matching the growth of your markets, your warehouse can reach its limit sooner than expected. In such a situation, an investment in fast and scalable solutions is critical.

At Vanderlande, we understand the complexities of running a successful warehousing operation. As such, we have defined the next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions. They will support you through an integrated portfolio of innovative systemsintelligent software and life-cycle services.
