Customer orders for bakeries vary day by day, not all customers order their products every day and no customer orders the same varieties and amounts every day. Managing the variences in required floor space every day seems an impossible task and warehouse managers see themselves running out of available space too often.
When your sales department wants to add more customers you ask yourself: Will I be able to fit this additional volume in the current building.
Having an inefficient warehouse layout will impact your resources and is just not helping your business. Location manager will help you to optimize the use of floor space you have and can reduce walking distances and floor usage.
Distrib location manager is an additional module for Distrib that optimizes the warehouse layout dynamically based on actual volumes to be dispatched. Many of our customer saved costs for warehouse extensions or even new Distribution centers when they implemented this software in their current environment.
Location manager can automatically adjust storage size (width and depth) per customer location in such a way that space utilization is over 95%. On delivery days with less volume or less customers to be served this space optimization feature will reduce walking distances or floor usage and labour costs accordingly. Location manager Distrib also features the ability to deploy dynamic routeplanning systems as integrated solution with the Distrib WMS.
