e-fulfilment Centre Design and Build

The demands of e-commerce are very different to more traditional sales channels and the standard or more traditional warehouse and distribution operations (however sophisticated) are not always set up to deal with e-fulfilment operations.

The new video interview below from one of the leading global e-tailers demonstrates the benefits of  a purpose built e-fulfilment distribution centre, the specific operational requirements for e-commerce and the speed and volume at which orders can be processed with relatively low staff levels.

It is all about the design and process flows to optimise layouts, workflows, resource and systems in a 24/7 picking operation. The Logistics and Distribution Centre Design Specialists at Gideon Hillman Consulting have developed with the market requirements and we now have a number of e-fulfilment projects successfully completed.
