Management

Descartes Systems Group, the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that B+S Logistik (B+S GmbH Logistik und Dienstleistungen), a leading German logistics service provider (LSP), has expanded its contract logistics business with new business-to-consumer (B2C) ecommerce operations using the Descartes pixi* warehouse management solution (WMS) to support order fulfillment in fashion, food distribution and other segments.

"After only one year, approximately 15% of our business is now B2C ecommerce and a combination of B2B/B2C commerce (omnichannel)," said Manuel Unkel, CEO at B+S Logistik. "Using the Descartes pixi* WMS and its multi-order picking capabilities, we're able to efficiently process anywhere from 2,000 to 10,000 parcel shipments per day."

B+S Logistik requires flexibility and scale to support seasonal demands and other types of peaks in consumer buying behaviors inherent in the industries they serve. With Descartes, the company can onboard new customers quickly and cost effectively. B+S Logistik's implementation took only eight weeks and provides robust capabilities to manage the entire ecommerce fulfillment lifecycle including order receipt; pick, pack and ship; item availability; and visibility tracking.

Descartes pixi* WMS is a cloud-based, flexible solution for efficient ecommerce fulfilment and warehouse management. Diverse organizations including online pure-players, traditional retailers and manufacturers, B2B wholesale distributors and LSPs, such as B+S Logistik, can use the solution to automate warehouse management processes for ecommerce order fulfillment and to exchange information seamlessly with enterprise resource planning (ERP) and financial systems. Descartes pixi* WMS helps companies improve productivity and reduce costs by automating shipping processes, nearly eliminating order processing errors, sending more packages per employee, and streamlining returns handling.

"We're pleased that our solution is playing an important part in the rapid ecommerce business growth at B+S Logistik," said Dirk Haschke, VP, Sales & Ecommerce Operations at Descartes. "Ecommerce continues to drive significant growth in business and consumer markets. The Descartes pixi* WMS solution and team of ecommerce domain experts can help customers rapidly meet operational and technological requirements to capitalize on their ecommerce opportunities domestically and internationally."
