OFS

Order Fulfillment System

The flexible and successful E-Commerce logistics concept

The retail world is changing - always and within all distribution channels. Enterprises need to keep their front-end logistics on a high level and adapt it to upcoming requirements simultaneously - while customer demands, trends, and fashion change every day. Consequently, the logistics experts are required to take action. However, the search for new solutions is quite difficult as the design basics are hard to define in such a dynamic environment. This is a huge challenge on the supplier's and the operator's side - and it can only be resolved with new concepts - right? The wheel does not always need to be reinvented, and ground-breaking innovations can arise from a solid ground of standard modules that have been proven in practice already. WITRON Logistik + Informatik GmbH, the general contractor from Parkstein, Germany, has proven exactly that through the new E-Commerce solution OFS (Order Fulfillment System).

OPS as the basis

In this compact and clearly structured E-Commerce solution, the worldwide successful WITRON OPS system (Order Picking System) acts as logistical core element that is able to efficiently manage small, middle, and very broad article ranges. Highly dynamic mechanics elements as well as small, light, and high-speed stacker cranes with double parallel loading device units allow shortest possible throughput times with the focus on same-day-delivery or next-day-delivery. Multi-functional workstations ensure maximum flexibility and the fulfillment of individual customer demands. Integrated packaging lines and a warehouse management system equipped with a large number of E-Commerce functionalities optimizes the delivery process in a sustainable manner.
