Here it comes the multi-approach! Innovation and optimization in the Logistic area.
Here at ECS, we place the utmost importance on the full satisfaction of our customers.
In addition to the quality of the products we offer and a specialized sales staff at your disposal to help you identify the component that perfectly fits your application, we owe our success to another area of our company: the Logistics Area.
Logistics is a world in constant and fast evolution. To best meet the needs of this sector and be at the forefront in the service offered to our customers, our logistics area managers have worked on the reorganization of the area, transforming it into a strength of our company.
Thanks to years of experience and teamwork aimed at optimizing processes, the result obtained has led to a truly effective and efficient structuring of logistics. We like to talk about this new model as a great innovation that has brought ECS logistics to an effective and efficient organization of the logistics in a multi-approach.
ECS is growing as a company and the logistics department is improving to meet our customers’ requests in an efficient and quality way.
In the handling of goods, each operation must be carried out with precision and must be organized so that delivery is correct, punctual and rapid. This is why we have concentrated our commitment and our energies in the reorganization of the company logistics, coming to create the multi-approach.
Why are we talking about multi-approach?
In reference to the new organization methodology of our logistics area, our expert managers have introduced process optimizations that have allowed us to significantly improve the organization of our logistics on several fronts.
- Multi Place: Double warehouses, one 100% functional from the Receiving to the Packing process and one full dedicated to the Shipment Forwarders Pick up (divided by different shipping method sea, air, truck)
- Multi Customer: simultaneous preparation of several customers orders
- Multi Picking & Stock: organization of goods in different store locations to facilitate the logistic activities
With the aim of speeding up warehouse operations and offering our customers a more effective and efficient service, we have doubled the warehouses
- Receiving, Store Inn and Packing Area: where incoming products are promptly delivered, unloaded and stored, without waiting times (multi supplier receipt at the same time)
- Shipping Area: Stock area where parts ready for shipment are waiting to the specific transport needs (sea, air, truck)
This reorganization has allowed us to optimize our Customers and Suppliers Drivers waiting time, minimizing the stops.
Thanks to the years of experience gained in the sector, our experts have managed to design a truly functional warehouse management system.
The redesign of the warehouse’s storage system, resulted from an in-depth study of the logic requirements and from the complete knowledge of the specific needs of your Company.
This efficient internal reorganization allows us to guarantee the simultaneous preparation of several orders. Orders destined to several customers are handled simultaneously without the risk of errors.
The multi-approach allows to guarantee the same quality and precision that have always distinguished us while speeding up the full order management timing process
We have reduced the 50% Inbound process time, the 38% for the picking time and 27% of orders goods packing.
Multi Picking & Stock
The new storage system provides the organization of goods in different types of store locations to facilitate the Parts identification and the orders picking activities according to the specific packaging process for the customer’s needs.
An important innovation involved the introduction of a new storage system for smaller items. They are now cataloged, categorized and stored in specific multi-level locations.
All this has produced concrete and measurable results in improving order preparation times. It has also greatly simplified warehouse management for operators and allows us to ensure even greater efficiency for our customers.
The precision with which even the smallest pieces have been organized allows the optimization of order preparation processes.
