Each of the company’s warehouses is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and is compliant with international quality standards. DPD is also a provider of 3PL-operator services and in order to follow international quality standards, a decision was make to introduce a reliable WMS-system. By visiting a warehouse of one of SOLVO’s clients and getting familiar with the effectiveness of the system in real life, company management made a decision to automate warehouse processes with the help of Solvo.WMS. Once again, implementation was carried out in the shortest time possible – three weeks. The warehouse, where SOLVO’s system is operating, is located in Podolsk and used for secure storage of the company’s clients’ promotional products. What sets this facility apart is the large variety of product items (office supplies, textile products, souvenirs and others) stored in floor and rack storage in 5-6 tiers. The warehouse is serviced by a stacker truck and 10 pickers.
