Inbound Handling:


The First Step in Improving Efficiency

Whether bringing raw materials into a production facility or finished goods into a distribution centre, efficient management of your supply chain starts at receiving.

All incoming materials are verified and checked for quality and quantity before being sent to high-density storage. Dematic iQ software ensures inventory accuracy, provides real-time inventory visibility, and intelligently routes the inventory for efficient retrieval. Dematic Receiving solutions support a range of manual to fully automated receiving and putaway of your inbound goods.

How Receiving Works

  1. Incoming pallets (unit loads) and cases are unloaded and verified against manifests and purchase orders.
  2. Items are inspected for quality, quantity, and damage.
  3. If necessary, items are removed from original packaging (detrash) and placed in totes for storage in high-density buffers.
  4. Items are directed to the most optimal storage location or dispatch area (cross-dock).
