In 2003, the textile retailer’s online shop went live which processes now up to 3.3 million orders; all related logistics processes will continue to be uniformly planned and controlled via SAP in the course of expansion.
The new warehouse has five levels with, among other things, a bag sorter including a dynamic buffer for efficient pre-picking and a goods issue sorter in shipping. To expand its logistics capacities, Ernsting’s family is relying on SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) to implement efficient planning and control for all goods movements using a central system basis. In addition, inconso supports the development of native Android apps in order to optimize process handling when using mobile terminals via an intuitive user interface.
This project has remarkable key performance indicators: Up to 100 pickers will be working at the same time in the new warehouse’s manual picking area in the future. The expansion of e-commerce logistics is integrated into the development of a holistically synchronized logistics IT system that creates a uniform SAP system landscape for smooth omnichannel logistics.
