As wholesale distributors recover from the pandemic and reimagine the state of their business, it is essential to ensure warehouse operations are in prime condition to support the supply chain and keep business running.  From production warehouses to service parts warehouses, distributors stand to benefit significantly from optimized planning and automated processes that “transition the supply chain from one that is a ‘cost center’ to one that is an ‘opportunity center’” (Source).

Watch our latest on-demand webinar featuring SAP Extended Warehouse Management (SAP EWM) solution owner Richard Kirker to see how wholesale distributors can take advantage of warehouse management system benefits such as:

  • 48% lower customer order cycle times

  • 6% more orders shipped on time

  • Improved labor allocation

  • Reduced operational expenses
