Consmecar required a powerful system that would permit it to make full use of its space and optimise logistics operations. Thus, Easy WMS will be in charge of directing all the logistics workflows of the installation via its radiofrequency (RF) app, from stock inputs, to order picking, even dispatches to the final customer.

The company’s installations in La Felguera (Langreo) comprise three adjoining warehouses where Consmecar stores products according to their characteristics and sizes, mainly large-sized pipes made of stainless steel, alloy steel and carbon steel, valves and other pipe accessories. Additionally, items are picked and prepared orders are sent straight to the docks that function both as a reception and dispatch area.

So that the centre operates properly, the Mecalux WMS will communicate with the industrial distributor’s ERP, Microsoft’s Navision, continuously.
