The underlying concept of the Fulfillment Factory solution from SSI SCHAEFER is based on overhead conveyor technology with RFID capable carriers. SSI SCHAEFER offers specifically designed load carriers such as bags or containers that are suitable for transporting a broad range of items. This dispatch solution is ideal for diverse products:
Clothing and shoes
The products can be transferred to the Fulfillment Factory from storage or directly upon delivery. The system is suitable for all sales channels and the order scope is completely flexible. When processing the orders, it no longer matters whether you are picking products for a brick-and-mortar business or an e-commerce customer. The articles are not stored separately for each sales channel but rather in a single warehouse.
The Fulfillment Factory compiles the orders with the correct quantities and in the correct sequence, guaranteeing cost-effective and efficient shipping. In addition, this system also makes orders easy to sort and buffer. A Fulfillment Factory system generally includes the flexible dynamic buffering module. As a consequence, fully automatic returns handling and returning or removing individual articles to and from storage are no problem at all.
