The e-commerce revolution offers huge growth potential. However, this also means that your warehouse can reach its limits much sooner than expected. E-commerce and omni-channel warehouses face increasing pressure to tackle rising operational costs. These arise from increasing customer requirements, such as the demand for fast order delivery. In addition, increasing storage requirements, expanding SKU ranges (stock keeping units) and dealing with variable order sizes can be serious challenges, as well as a lack of available workforce.
To keep up with an exponentially growing market, scalable solutions are vital. As part of our next generation of scalable solutions – evolutions – Vanderlande offers FASTPICK, which seamlessly integrates innovative systems, intelligent software and life-cycle services.
FASTPICK is a goods-to-person order fulfilment system that uses the advanced ADAPTO shuttles for product storage and retrieval for day-to-day operations. To handle short-term peaks in a cost-efficient way, highly efficient trolley picking is used to complement the goods-to-person system.
With simplicity in mind, Vanderlande’s evolutions streamline the logistics process in an attractive platform that is highly intuitive, requires minimal training and is easy to operate. Alongside optimised ergonomics and sustainable productivity, evolutions provide the best possible user experience.
When fulfilling a diverse order profile, handling varying SKU ranges or changing any logistic process, evolutions offer the optimum flexibility to tackle multiple challenges.
Vanderlande’s innovative approach puts scalability at the core of evolutions. This allows warehouses to easily adapt to seasonal peaks, changing throughput and storage requirements, and growing business demands.
