From a distance, all warehouses function in a similar way: the goods are delivered, received, stored, and later retrieved and transported away. In summary, this is true, but in reality, warehouse processes are much more complex - depending on the company's specifics, product characteristics, customer requirements, and storage properties. The receiving process alone can involve many steps from receiving to deconsolidation to putaway at the final storage location. At the same time, other product- and customer-specific requirements must be taken into account, which means that the goods receipt process can vary in the same warehouse. With a higher volume of inbound deliveries, this can become quite a challenge to receive the goods quickly and correctly in order to be able to deliver them again on time and according to customer requirements. With SAP solutions, many processes can be automated, making optimal use of warehouse resources.
