According to Luca Urciuoli, adjunct professor of Supply Chain Management at the MIT-Zaragoza Program, companies with supply chain risk management strategies can gain a competitive advantage in the market. Outsourcing and globalisation can increase the vulnerability of supply chains to unexpected risks or disruptions.
Mecalux sat down with professor Yossi Sheffi, Director of the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics, to talk about how Covid-19 is reshaping businesses and supply chains – and what’s coming next.
The Marketplaces & Ecommerce Platforms Integration module is an extension of the Easy WMS warehouse management system from Mecalux tasked with integrating a company’s facility with the main marketplaces and e-commerce platforms in the market (Amazon, eBay and PrestaShop, among others). This software connects Easy WMS to the main digital sales platforms and marketplaces to sync the firm's online catalogue with the stock in its physical warehouse.
Order dispatch and delivery are two vital operations for e-commerce logistics, as they directly impact customer satisfaction. How is it possible to provide more efficient service without errors? The answer is Multi Carrier Shipping Software from Mecalux, a software application that includes the necessary functionalities for packaging, labelling and shipping orders.
The software for Ecommerce is a software application designed to manage all aspects involved in preparing orders for online shops. This new program stands out for its user-friendliness and ability to boost order prep. WMS for Ecommerce can reduce picking times by 50% and increase productivity by 80%.
In this article, we will respond to the most common questions about this system — increasingly used in all types of warehouses and presently implemented in 500 installations around the globe — with the aim of showing their full potential and their contribution to more efficient logistics.
A warehouse management system (WMS) is responsible for optimising all operations that take place in an installation. The supply chain is subject to constant transformation, the purpose of which is to cope with market changes. In this vein, the functionalities of a WMS must also be enhanced with a view to tackling increasingly complex processes and scenarios.
Compact storage systems feature a higher storage density by optimising available warehouse space. Of all these, the Pallet Shuttle system is the one that best enhances an installation’s productivity because an electric shuttle moves goods through the channel automatically.
Mecalux Software Solutions offers companies efficient omnichannel management solutions. Easy WMS, as well as the WMS for e-commerce and Multi Carrier Shipping Software functionalities, aim to satisfy the end consumer with on-time deliveries and quality customer service.
Gartner, the world's leading IT research and advisory company, predicts that digital twins will be one of 2018s industry-shaping trends and that, by 2021, 50% of large-scale companies will use them. A ‘digital twin’ is a simulation, a digital replica of a process, product or service through information gathered by built-in sensors on equipment inside manufacturing centres. How does simulation work and why use it? How can simulation be applied to a supply chain or in my warehouse?
