Packing and shipping solutions for resilience and profitability

Higher order volumes coupled with turnover-prone labour force facilities to use software technology, such as FORTNA OptiSlot DC™ and best-fit solutions designed to maximise system utilisation to meet the higher demand of order fulfilment.
