Chaotic warehousing

With chaotic warehousing or dynamic warehousing, the item is not assigned a fixed storage location, but moves around the warehouse during storage.

The storage locations are digitally recorded and labeled in the merchandise management system. The storage location in which the item can be stored is analyzed. The merchandise management system then recognizes where the article is located. It is important that the merchandise management system can work automatically.

Advantages of chaotic warehousing:

  • Warehouse is stocked faster
  • Empty spaces are avoided
  • Higher degree of room utilization
  • Items are transported to the storage location to save time
  • Order pickers have more space
  • Customer orders and purchasing processes can be simplified

Disadvantages of chaotic warehousing:

  • Difficult accounting
  • Problems can occur in the event of a system failure
  • Articles can be lost
  • High acquisition costs
