E-commerce Outpaces Traditional Retail
Because the growth of e-commerce continues to outpace traditional retail, your ability to provide outstanding online order fulfillment is more important than ever. With major online retailers driving consumer expectations for fast and/or free delivery — and traditional brick-and-mortar retailers implementing click and collect fulfillment models — service level agreements (SLAs) are becoming increasingly difficult to fulfill. To protect profits and succeed in this competitive environment, you need to increase throughput, reduce order errors, and achieve maximum efficiencies from manual and automated processes.
Whether you’re upgrading an existing online fulfillment network, making the transition from traditional retail to e-commerce, or meeting click-and-collect SLAs, We create e-commerce and omnichannel solutions that meet your specific fulfillment requirements and drive operational productivity, while building a long-term foundation that enables your operations to integrate increasing levels of automation as needed.
Honeywell provides scalable, automated systems that combine advanced material handling equipment and innovative software, order picking technologies, mobile computing, scanning, printing and more. We also provide a wide portfolio of personal protective equipment from forklift tethers and safety vests to safety eyewear, ear protection, and gloves.
E-commerce Fulfillment Comes with Specific Challenges
E-commerce fulfillment comes with specific challenges, in particular the proliferation of SKUs and high-order volumes, which add complexities to picking requirements that often result in more manual touches to complete orders. With our revolutionary Momentum™ warehouse execution system (WES), order picking technologies and sortation conveyors, we’re focused on helping e-commerce retailers transform these challenges into efficient processes and successfully meet customer SLAs
