The Future of E-commerce Fulfillment at UPS

07.09.20

Most of us know UPS from the brown trucks that deliver packages to our homes. One of the world’s largest parcel delivery services, UPS generated a total of $74 billion in revenue in 2019 and delivered more than 5.5 billion packages and documents. Perhaps less well-known is UPS’s Supply Chain Services, or SCS, a $13 billion division that handles everything from freight forwarding to e-commerce fulfillment services targeted at the small- to mid-sized (SMB) business community.

Now, UPS is moving inside the four walls of its fulfillment centers, designing the warehouse of the future with a focus on the right mix of automation and people. That mix includes autonomous mobile robots from Locus Robotics, a warehouse execution system (WES) from Softeon, goods-to-person picking solutions from AutoStore, and robotic stretch wrapping from Robopac. And, other automation technologies are under consideration in UPS’s innovation centers.

WES: It’s for Warehouse Automation and More

07.08.20

Warehouse execution systems grew out of the need to manage the way orders are processed in highly automated DCs to get more efficiency out of high-end fixed automation—but now the focus is expanding. Here’s how suppliers are addressing the need to manage automated and manual workflows, and apply machine learning and predictive models. 

Understanding the Complex Landscape of WMS, WCS and WES Warehouse Solutions

06.22.2020

From CSCMP's "HOT Topics" -   One challenge logistics managers face is that there are actually three main types of software solutions that can be deployed in a distribution center, individually or in combination. There is a lot of confusion regarding the functionality provided by each type of solution and the boundaries between them – boundaries that can vary depending on the specific software vendors involved and the application scenario.

UPS Launches Smart Warehouse Technology

04.23.2020

Atlanta, GA:  UPS Supply Chain Solutions today announced warehouse network technology designed to make distribution centers smarter and more efficient. The new Warehouse Execution System (WES) will enable faster order intake and fulfillment to ensure that customers, especially those with fluctuating order patterns, receive their products on time.

UPS and supply chain solutions provider Softeon created the WES which allows UPS to define specific customer requirements to ensure highest priority orders are worked first without manual intervention, resulting in more than 50% productivity gains for some customers.

AI and IoT are Ready For Your Warehouse

04.01.2020

Artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things are making their initial forays into warehouse operations. The expected outcome: DCs able to respond dynamically to current supply chain conditions instead of pre-set rules. Look for newfound flexibility and an ability to respond to specific customer demands.

Podcast: Softeon Discusses WMS and WES and Introduces Integrated Solution

247 PodcastSofteon introduced a new integrated warehouse management system (WMS) and warehouse execution system (WES) 

03.17.2020

The combined solution provides visibility, orchestration and optimization of order picking and related processes, including maximizing materials handling system utilization. Uniquely, the solution also greatly benefits more manual DCs.

Softeon’s WMS and WES solutions are available as stand-alone platforms, but are now also being deployed together as a powerful Warehouse Management and Execution System.

Robotic Software Takes Control

Just like WES, robot operating systems are undergoing a transformation that may change the way we manage distribution centers.

Labor Management: Stuff that works

There’s been more than enough whining about the availability and stability of labor in DCs and warehouses. Ignoring that path, about a third of facilities have put in place tools and practices that motivate and engage people. Everyone else has no choice but to follow or fall behind.

03.10.2020

Talk to people about the current state of labor in warehouses and DCs, and you might be surprised by what they have to say. The conversation has changed lately, but not in the way you’re hoping.
