Order Fulfillment Systems for Business-to-Business Distribution Centers

Dematic recognizes the wide variations in business-to-business (B2B) commerce. A distribution centre that supplies components to electronics manufacturers differs greatly from a university research library implementing a document management system.

But whatever the application, Dematic works with you to deliver the right solution for your specific area of the Wholesales/B2B industry.

Wholesales/B2B Trends

  • E-Commerce companies becoming competitors by entering traditional B2B markets such as maintenance, safety, and operational supply
  • Fluctuations in demand creating issues with maintaining optimal inventory levels throughout the supply chain
  • Evolving logistics with distributors and manufacturers
  • Difficulty finding educated labour resources with technical knowledge of the market
  • Expansion raising transportation costs
  • Increasing diversity in product offerings

How Dematic Can Help

Dematic solutions address the specific business and technology challenges for the Wholesales/B2B industry such as support for large numbers of stock keeping units, seasonal/promotional peaks in volume, extensive inventory storage capacity, large percentage of single line orders, same day/next day shipping, and efficient returns processing.

Dematic Wholesales/B2B industry solutions include:

  • Advanced software to optimise order fulfilment and provide insights into the operation
  • Flexibility for seasonal & promotional peaks and changing order profiles
  • Faster and more efficient processing of returns — even with growing numbers of SKUs
  • Efficient processing of smaller and more complex orders
  • Automation that reduces dependency on warehouse labor
  • Software and controls to maintain optimal inventory levels throughout supply chain
