Warehouse Operation Systems
Enlinx operates a modern, technology driven warehouse and distribution facility designed with our clients’ needs in mind. Our technology stack ranges from a modern product conveyor system with automated sorting to an iPad based picking and packing system that includes many layers of redundancy and quality control checks that increase speed and reduce error rates. Wireless technology and hand held computers are deployed throughout the operation to provide real-time tracking that gives you insight into your inventory and orders at any time.
All warehouses are not created equal.
Our expertise is order fulfillment and our technology stack is designed to keep Enlinx in an industry leading position . From the moment your products hit our docks to the time they are shipped to your customers, we keep track of every step in between and provide that insight to you.
Our warehouse management system (WMS) manages and tracks all order fulfillment processes, big and small, including:
- Product receipt
- Inventory storage and replenishment
- Customer order receipt, pick, pack and ship functions
- Returned order processing
Although highly streamlined, the system is very flexible and supports a broad array of customized client requirements. Using our client portal you have access to all order fulfillment information through various dashboards and reports that help you manage your business!
Cartonization software automatically identifies the correct box size for each order based on the dimensions of the items in that order. This means you save money because the smallest possible carton is used to ship your products and you don’t pay to “ship air” or get charged for unnecessary box filler.
Our Warehouse Control System (WCS) orchestrates the flow of product through the warehouse and coordinates material handling points. To increase accuracy, we utilize a picking control system and our conveyors are routed and controlled in real-time based on event-based data.
Shipping Automation Software gives you an edge by lowering costs and errors and, increasing visibility. We utilize shipping software that provides multi-carrier shipping solutions for multiple origins, carriers, modes and service types. This means you and your customers benefit from the best combinations of cost and carrier service options!
Automated conveyor systems provide flexibility and unparalleled accuracy. The conveyors used throughout the warehouse are equipped with motor-driven rollers for materials handling and order-transport. Controlled by event-based functions in real-time, our conveyors stay fully integrated with data-driven order fulfillment rules.
Enlinx’ high speed automated sortation systems are designed to handle diverse products while maintaining flow accuracy, giving our clients the best of both.
Paperless, intuitive, and easy to use, iPad picking is another innovation used on the warehouse floor for receiving, put away, picking and packing. Built in quality control checks ensure pick and pack accuracy that exceed industry standards!
Paperless pick to light technology speeds up fulfillment by electronically reading order pick tickets, determining the most efficient processing sequence, and then transmitting signals to special light bars mounted on the storage racks that house the product to be picked. The light bars direct pickers to the product and quantity to be picked. Leveraging this technology boosts pick rates and accuracy which means faster service and less returns for you.
Our batch picking method pulls stock to fill multiple orders simultaneously. The orders are batched together to reduce the number of trips to the same area within the warehouse to pick product. Fewer round trips organized correctly save us time, expedites the process and saves you money!
