VARGO, a leading material handling system integrator and supplier of warehouse fulfillment system (WES) software for fulfillment operations, today announced that it has been selected by Old Navy to design a solution Ship From Store (SFS) for its Dallas, Texas store, which will mimic the great functionality of the Gap distribution center.
âIn the Dallas, TX store, we implemented VARGO’s complete warehouse fulfillment software solution with just a few features enabled to enable a micro distribution center in the store. Store employees fill orders using the same user interfaces and functions as high-volume distribution centers, making it a unified distribution engine for our customer, âsaid Art Eldred, System Sales Manager. VARGO customer. “Employees choose products from the ground to ship store inventory from the closest possible geographic area to Old Navy customers.”
Micro-distribution sites pre-position inventory at various sites to meet demand closer to the demand center, reducing order cycle times and transit costs. VARGO’s SFS solution creates a distribution micro-site inside a store, reducing the cost of transporting and transporting inventory from a large distribution center further away from destinations. Creating micro-distribution centers in existing stores also taps available labor markets, helping to alleviate labor issues, VARGO explained.
The solution includes VARGO’s Continuous Order Fulfillment Engine (COFE), a WES solution that works in real time to organize, sequence and synchronize all warehouse resources – equipment, people and processes, VARGO said. COFE is a wave-free WES that enables continuous flow order picking to minimize order cycle times, maximize efficiency, and eliminate waves and buffers.
âVARGO’s solutions are flexible and help retailers adapt to expected and unexpected changes,â said Eldred. âSFS enables rapid fulfillment of e-commerce orders for pickup and delivery. “
