E-commerce and omni-channel fulfillment require highly flexible distribution operations that can adapt swiftly to changing demand patterns, including seasonal and daily volume peaks.

Pull-driven order fulfillment, enabled by advanced Warehouse Execution Systems, can improve responsiveness, lower order cycle times, increase worker productivity, and require less capital investment.

  • Learn about the role of warehouse execution systems in pull-driven fulfillment
