Warehouse
„In the past, warehouse management could focus
solely on controlling the movement and storage of
materials within an warehouse operation
and processing the associated transactions of
picking, packing, shipping and receiving.
However, today’s systems must integrate
warehouse operations, so that visibility extends
beyond the four walls of the warehouse and to the
rest of the value chain.”
