Warehouse automation has evolved significantly in recent years to a level where warehouse execution systems (WES) are now available to streamline material flow and order picking. These systems offer bakeries and snack producers a better way to store and ship goods to market.
WES represents a growing trend in warehouse management. These systems combine the functionality of warehouse management systems (WMS) and warehouse control systems (WCS) to optimize material flow and order picking. WES applications play a key role in reducing costs by facilitating the receipt, storage, tracking and retrieval of products. This allows companies to increase inventory accuracy and overcome order fulfillment challenges.
