SWS treat each client individually. Your warehouse is unique, so there was no problem when Elm Park Storage in Bedford wanted to include bay heights in its put-away algorithm.
Elm Park ‘receive’ pallets to locations which are the same height or taller than the article. Interestingly, because they store product for third parties, they use the location coding and check digits supplied by their client.
SWS is able to cater for location heights of any kind and will accept the location format from other warehouse systems. This is useful if you need a new warehouse management system but you do not want to re-define your locations again. A special report in spreadsheet format was exported to the client to show where stock is placed.
