What You Will Learn

Helm, a leading provider of third-party fulfillment for widely-recognized brands, needed to increase the efficiency of its supply chain to satisfy the rising needs of clients who each have unique order profiles and requirements. The company created several new processes to conquer one of its biggest challenges: shipping 90 percent of its orders the same day they are received. Helm started using dynamic waves, where orders are pushed to the warehouse floor as they come in and re-prioritized based on promised delivery date, daily carrier cut-off time and more. It also started using a pick-to-carton process for certain orders that generated a 50 percent increase in productivity.

Key Takeaways

• How a multi-channel operation can move from traditional waving to dynamic waves and the benefits of the latter system
• Strategies for fulfilling orders faster and driving efficiency gains while meeting rising customer expectations
