Tracking
In today’s world there’s a whole lot more to the business of warehousing than just Receiving, Putaway, Picking and Shipping. Not every item is destined to sit on the shelf until it is picked and shipped. Kitting, manufacturing, repackaging, QC and product customization are all twists, turns and transformations that the product may make before shipping to the customer. Warehouse Link provides tracking and inventory integrity throughout the entire life of the product – no matter what it goes through before shipping.
