Descartes: E-Commerce Warehouse Logistics as a Competitive Advantage

Workshop Room 2, 21 March



Are you are sending send more than 500 parcels a day, have your own warehouse and want to grow even more successfully in 2018? More than 1,500 established online shops, including SHOEPASSION.com, Maskworld.com and pack-angels.com, had the same goal. But there was no time for strategic marketing campaigns or the development of new markets because of time-consuming manual processes in warehouse logistics.

Online retailers who want to grow successfully require internal processes fit for purpose: from order receipt to shipping and returns management. Intelligent warehouse management software makes this possible, giving traders an increase in delivery speed of up to 42% and enabling the use of Amazon Prime by vendors.

We will show you what you should look out for in e-commerce warehouse management software and what you will be able to do today based on real-life examples.

The following questions will be answered in the workshop: Competitive Advantage E-Commerce Warehouse Logistics

  • When is the time to introduce professional warehouse management software?
  • What advantages does an WMS system offer?
  • What realistic goals can be achieved with a WMS?
  • Which areas should an e-commerce WMS solution support?
  • What should the provider of a WMS solution offer?
