Whether receipt, cross-dock, putaway, pick, replenishment, packing, dispatch, stock taking or perpetual inventory, the right device is essential for performance of both people and materials handling equipment (MHE).
Real time data capture at the point of transaction using 'multi-modal' devices is critical to warehouse operational excellence. Accurate data entry at receipt is necessary to avoid cascading errors in the logistics chain.
As e-commerce becomes the norm and more "brick and mortar" enterprises adopt multi-channel fulfillment practices, warehouse picking operations require the flexibility to ship pallets to a retail store or individual items directly to a consumer's doorstep.
Inventory replenishment and optimisation is an extremely complex task, yet it is arguably a critical area for your warehouse. In fact, maintaining proper inventory and taking advantage of forward buy opportunities could have a great impact on your company’s profit.
Packing & Shipping
Packing desks and pallet build areas require fast activity to complete and ship orders. Desk space must be optimised and scanning equipment fast, accurate and ergonomic so that operatives see them as an essential tool, not a hindrance to the process.
To ensure accuracy of inventory levels, use mobile and wireless warehouse inventory management technologies to manage physical inventory in real-time and reduce the number of workers required for conducting cycle count. Direct access into your WMS on ruggedised mobile computers,
A warehouse pallet's initial location influences all the processes that follow it. Warehouse Management System (WMS) putaway algorithms only ensure location accuracy if the operator's device allows swift scanning, keying or speaking of the rack or floor location to confirm the transaction.
Delivery & Collections
Honeywell mobile computers provide immediate electronic proof of delivery or collection through consignment scanning and either on-screen signature capture or document image capture. Proof of location and proof of attendance can also be obtained using GPS location geo-codes and image capture if there is no recipient confirmed proof of delivery.
GPS navigation drives down fuel costs by providing optimal routes and the basis for dynamic delivery scheduling. Dynamic scheduling allows carriers to move from fixed routes, offering predictable delivery slots when integrated by Honeywell partners into carriers' delivery planning & scheduling systems.
