E-commerce

In an age of high demand and instant access, today’s consumers expect rapid deliveries as and when requested. The trend for next-day and even same-day deliveries is increasing, as is the rapid growth of online sales across many sectors. This means that large quantities of small orders have to be handled on a daily basis.
E-commerce distribution centres are challenged to fulfill thousands of orders with ever-shrinking lead times. 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.
