Logistics solutions for e-commerce in the food trade
E-commerce in the food trade
The right logistics software is also the factor that brings success in the food trade.
This is because, especially for goods that are perishable or have a sell-by date, it is important to carry out storage, picking and handling in a professional and error-free manner.
Our logistics software supports you in this:
- Article management
- Job processing
It masters carton and pallet goods
Our logistics software takes into account both individual packages and packaging units. During picking, the employee can be instructed to break open VPEs and remove individual items.
It knows different pledge management
Our software is able to process different types of pledge.
It is thus possible to generate deposit items and assign several deposit types to an item, such as deposit for single packs or deposit for container packs.
Shipping with the help of our logistics software
Especially for the food trade, the intelligent shipping processing of our logistics software offers numerous advantages. When customers order large, heavy or refrigerated items together, they can be separated into special shipping packages and still be correctly labeled and tracked in the delivery process.
Same-day delivery, which is increasingly in demand, is also an integral part of the software. Thanks to the integrated route planning, the vehicle fleet is managed. It automatically distributes the upcoming delivery orders to optimal routes in order to achieve the shortest possible driving distances. It is also possible to make changes to tours that are already in progress, for example, to enable a pickup at short notice.
It goes without saying that all status data and delivery information, including the final recipient signature, are recorded in the logistics software with order accuracy.
Item properties and stock
No more problems with best before dates and expiration dates: Our software is able to handle this information professionally. Picking strategies such as FEFO (First Expire – First Out) or FIFO (First In – First Out) in all their variants also play an important role here. The characteristics of the articles also determine the storage areas: Refrigerated items are naturally assigned to the corresponding temperature-controlled storage locations. Sophisticated deposit management is also an integral part of our software.
