The goods receipt and dispatch processes are central to any manufacturing, warehouse or distribution centre. Without a strong goods in process, all downstream activities are in peril. Without an efficient dispatch set-up, time to market and therefore profit will suffer. Lödige Industries receipt and dispatch workflows solutions, whether on a stand-alone basis or as part of a comprehensive warehouse system, will improve warehouse efficiency and the flow of stock.
Our WMS supports a range of manual to fully automated receiving, conveying and dispatch methods. This helps ensure maximum continuous inventory accuracy and smart storage routing for efficient storage and retrieval.
Trucks arriving at the gate are directed to numbered parking lots or to our receiving truck docks, designed to speed up loading and unloading processes. Our solutions range from simple flexible scissor lifting tables with a lifting capacity of 1,000 kg to complex truck lifts with a maximum height of 12.5 m and lifting up to 100 tons.
"The majority of inventory errors occur at receiving and putaway. Without a rigorous goods in process, it’s difficult to establish and maintain inventory accuracy."
(Guy Walker, Managing Director Middle East, Lödige Industries)
Goods receipt processes that still rely on the “circle, sign and date” method are not only prone to errors but may find out too late that they have less than the expected inventory in stock. Manual goods in processes are not only error prone and intransparent but also labour intensive, inefficient and slow. For e-commerce and fulfilment centres this is costly. The longer it takes for items to register as available, the larger the missed sales opportunities. Goods receiving may seem a small step in the supply chain, but if done well, sets the stage for success throughout the distribution center.
