What You Will Learn

Wholesale distribution fulfillment has unique business requirements. The SKU distribution is not as random as with e-commerce, yet does not have the visibility of P.O.S data as retail. Historically, wholesalers batch work in order to minimize touches and create efficiency. This can lead to extended order cycle times, pockets of congestion and — ironically — additional touches. During this session we will discuss alternative concepts enabled by waveless, continuous flow processes: 2 Pass Pull, Put-to-Order, Reserve-to-Residual Picking and Near-Demand Loop.
