Cartonization

Optimized packaging decisions based on dimensions, weight, position, fragility and more Get a Demo

One of the newest additions to the Datex warehouse management software solution (WMS) is cartonization software.

This warehouse management feature makes enhanced packaging decisions based upon business rules, order data and SKU information. The WMS cartonization software solution selects optimized packaging based upon the dimensions, weight, position, fragility and other factors of the products being shipped in order to determine the optimal packaging for shipping.

The addition of the cartonization software module to Datex FootPrint WMS is another enhancement designed to maximize profitability by reducing waste and inefficiency. The cartonization feature of the Datex warehouse management solution (WMS) enables businesses to decrease order returns and damages, lower labor, material and freight costs and improve productivity. Using the Cartonization software module can provide faster packaging turnaround and result in higher customer satisfaction rates.

For businesses working towards being “green”, cartonization is a critical tool in any supply chain logistics green initiative. The Datex Cartonization software module of Datex FootPrint WMS includes the ability to meet carrier rules and can coordinate multiple carton orders. Using Cartonization, businesses can be better prepared for both peak and nonpeak operation periods. Because the Cartonization module can determine the best packaging option, less labor is required, often resulting in dramatic savings.
