WAREHOUSE MANAGEMENT FOR YOUR HUB
When a logistics network includes a hub it means that the end points of the network are not directly connected to each other but rather that all routes lead to a central point or hub. Received goods – usually in the form of large bulks such as pallets, packages or lengths – are sorted at the hub into destination points or regions and in some cases, repackaged as smaller units, relabeled, temporarily stored in the central warehouse or directly loaded for onward transport. This is precisely what the BOWE Hub Warehouse Management System (WMS) & Warehouse Control System (WCS) manages. Customized and perfectly configured for the requirements of such central hubs, the Warehouse Management System BOWE Hub delivers maximum transparency and traceability for all internal logistics processes and also reveals the hidden potential for improvements.
UNCOVER THE POTENTIAL FOR SAVINGS WITH THE BOWE HUB WMS
Whereas courier express and parcel services (CEP) gather packages from all parts of the country together in their parcel sorting centers, sort them precisely using the zip codes of their recipients, and then forward them directly to their local distribution centers; many (online) retailers adopt the hub concept before items are forwarded from a central node to regional distribution centers. This has several advantages. The use of the hub as a central interchange and routing center helps to minimize transport costs as well as guaranteeing reliable distribution logistics. Besides risk transfer, this means that all material or package movements can be tracked centrally and it ensures transparency in complex distribution networks. The BOWE Hub Warehouse Management System (WMS) & Warehouse Control System (WCS) offers everything you need to be able to model, track and optimize these processes in the hub.
As a tailormade software solution for such hubs, BOWE Hub offers everything that a Warehouse Management System (WMS) & Warehouse Control System (WCS) should for this business. It automates a broad spread of functions, simplifies and improves everyday workflows in all areas of the logistics chain, significantly increasing its efficiency. From received goods and quality control, through storage or repackaging into smaller units including relabeling, to dispatch and returns management. Naturally, the standard BOWE Hub package also offers stock management and cross-docking functions to mention just some of its capabilities.
