Technology Adoption and Integration Have Become a Necessity

Ineffective warehouse management costs your business money and can limit your 3PL’s ability to grow. Isn't it time to integrate a 3PL warehouse management platform to increase operational efficiency?

Third-party logistics is expected to grow at a CAGR rate of 7.1% from 2020 to 2027 to reach an impressive $1,789.94 billion. To stay ahead of the competition, you’ll need to let go of slow manual methods. The astronomical business growth is nudging (even shoving) owners to look for more efficient tracking methods such as a cloud-based warehouse management system.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a warehouse management system (WMS)?

3PL Warehouse Manager is a cloud-based software platform that manages all day-to-day operations within a warehouse and acts as the foundation for any other technology systems a warehouse might implement. It can help warehouse staff manage receipts, locations, picking, packing, shipping, inventory, and so much more. Our WMS also includes customer management, including the customer portal and automated notifications. It also features data analytics and reporting to help you view productivity in real-time.

What is omnichannel fulfillment?

Omnichannel fulfillment is a unified approach to managing inventory and order processing from a variety of channels, including a variety of order sources such as Amazon, eBay, and Shopify, for example, from the same inventory bucket. In this way, 3PLs can streamline fulfillment processes and distribution of orders from multiple selling channels without segmenting or restricting inventory per channel.

How can 3PL Warehouse Manager help me receive product into my warehouse?

In 3PL Warehouse Manager, you can create receipts manually, with a scanner using SmartScan, by uploading an import file, or electronically through an EDI or API connection. You can then search and filter by receipts in the Find Receipts page in the Receipts module and perform simple actions like editing, confirming, canceling, and reopening. In addition, you can view open, complete, closed, and canceled receipts, generate receipt documents, and adjust receipt charges.
