What You Will Learn

In this seminar, we'll provide a brief history of the fulfillment center technology stack and the evolution of the warehouse execution system (WES). We'll also examine the latest trends in fulfillment requirements, their challenges, and gaps in conventional approaches. We will look at how WES has evolved from a manufacturing to solve the production woes of e-commerce fulfillment. Lastly, we'll look at how the WES is solving the challenges of tomorrow, namely the need for more automation and less labor in an environment that simplifies the roles and responsibilities of the warehouse management system.
