Dematic Warehouse Control Software (WCS) interfaces with the Warehouse Management System (WMS) to manage loading and manifesting of all shipments.
With no paperwork, tasks including reading and writing are eliminated, significantly improving the accuracy of dispatch shipping applications to +99.9%, and reducing delivery vehicle/shipping container loading times by up to 300%.
Dematic’s WCS directs the loading and reverse-drop sequencing of orders, and then ‘closes’ and certifies loads on the delivery vehicle/shipping container, improving order assembly flexibility, and automatically generates shipping manifests, order documentation and man and machine-readable labels, meeting all ASN (Advanced Shipping Notice) requirements.
Dematic also supplies an extensive range of materials handling equipment including package and pallet transport conveyor systems that deliver orders direct to despatch docks, plus a range of roller and belt conveyors, which can be extended into the delivery vehicle/shipping container, enabling fast, accurate, safe loading.
For high volume case-shipping applications, Dematic conveyor sortation systems automatically sort orders to their required shipping lane, where they can then be manually or automatically palletised and staged for dispatch, or hand-stacked direct into the delivery vehicle/shipping container.
