Warehouse Management

WHIZeCargo Warehouse Management System (WMS) is an industrial-strength warehouse management software that empowers companies to gain control over customer's service levels, warehousing costs, order turnaround time, throughput volumes, and most importantly, profit.

Businesses are often needlessly weighed down by poorly managed inventory, causing frustration and leading to lost time and revenue. WHIZeCargo WMS is a powerful execution system that manages warehouse activities for order-of-magnitude improvements in warehouse and inventory management.

WHIZeCargo WMS solution offers advanced warehouse management functionality to manage even the most complex distribution environments. This powerful WMS helps to ensure fast, accurate fulfillment through directed, optimized workflow, utilizing the most advanced wireless and bar code technologies, including RFID. Containerization, wave planning and slotting drive further efficiencies.


  • State-of-the-art barcode or RFID data collection system runs on many popular portable data terminals (PDTs) and PDAs, suitable for use in warehouses. These devices support bar code and RFID reading, mobile computing and wireless networking (WiFi)
  • Location Master - Location is the place items are stored. WHIZeCargo WMS provides flexibility to cope with any type of warehouse and any type of stock. This system ensures that WMS is able to work with practically any warehouse configuration and can be tailored further to accommodate an unusual situation.
  • Cycle Counting - Cycle Counting is a necessary action in inventory management. A cycle count is an inventory management procedure where a small subset of inventory is counted on any given day. Cycle counts contrast with traditional physical inventory in that physical inventory stops operation at a facility and all items are counted, audited, and recounted at one time. Cycle counts are less disruptive to daily operations, provide an ongoing measure of inventory accuracy and procedure execution, and can be tailored to focus on items with higher value or higher movement.
  • Inventory Moves & Transfers - With WHIZeCargo WMS, you have the freedom of transferring items from one location to another with an easy to use transaction interface. For example, Receipt of Goods moves inventory from the receiving dock ( the vendor) to stores. Invoicing (issuing) moves inventory from your stores (the warehouse) to your customer. These are the most common transactions. However, if your company has intermediate locations (e.g., inspection and/or quarantine, employee locations, vehicle locations, or alternate locations, such as Warehouse #2), then Inventory Transfer is used to move inventory to those locations. It up-counts the transfer's To location and down-counts inventory in the transfer's From location.
  • Multiple Units of Measure - Defines one or many valid units of measure for an item. Allowing you to track inventory in any one of the defined units.
  • Paperless Picking & Receiving - Receive new orders into inventory or pick existing orders electronically, without the use of a printed document.
  • Staging - As a pick list is completed, the system directs the picker to place the completed outbound containers in the designated staging locations. The picker scans the outbound container packaging-identifier and station bar code label to confirm put away. Packing list per container can be automatically printed at this time. The packing list are in form of labels or paper.
  • Cross Docking - In fast-moving industries such as consumer goods, food, retail, drug and grocery, and others, cross-docking is increasingly recognized as an indispensable way to increase inventory speed and throughput.
  • WHIZTEC WMS cross-docking capabilities make it possible for warehousing operations of all sorts to mobilize their inventory by making sure that incoming loads are quickly turned around as outbound ones, thus improving customer service and effecting freight economies. Cross docking avoids unnecessary holding costs, improves product availability, helps consolidate freight and increase customer satisfaction. Flow-thru can be utilized to deconsolidate receipts based on retail store allocations or consolidate them with previously picked product in the staging lane, so each store gets the inventory and quantities it needs in the same shipment. Trans-shipment capabilities allow companies with pre-packaged, pre-wrapped pallets to unload pallets and packages and get them to outbound staging lanes for fast loading on outbound trucks. Opportunistic capabilities allow companies to review outbound orders, see where outstanding ones are, and move product directly to the outbound staging lane to fill the gap. As a result, freight can be commingled and consolidated quickly ensuring each outbound delivery meets customer and service level requirements.
  • Cubing (Space Management) - The dimensional weight of an item is a standard formula ( DWH = length (L) x width (W) x height (H) divided by a dimensional weight conversion factor, usually 166 ). These calculations are used to consider the amount of space a package will take up in relation to the weight of the package, and is used by most shipping carriers when billing. When these calculations are inaccurate due to poor dimensional measuring techniques everyone suffers. There are several ways to acquire dimensional measurements, the most typical being ultrasound, infrared, or some sort of laser technology. The right dimensioning systems makes it easier to select storage location, facilitates order picking, repackaging, and shipment planning. A cubing system helps you to do it right the first time by applying the correct dimension or weight-based shipping charge. For carriers, you can easily and reliably audit the freight you receive from customers. An integrated digital display and control panel allows for finger tip control. Innovative software gives you numerical dimensions and weight and an instantaneous, three-dimensional graphical representation of the parcel being measured.
  • Slotting and Optimization - Directed Pick & Put away helps you maximize productivity and minimize travel time from location to location by determining the most advantageous arrangement of SKUs within a range of pick faces or slots. It minimizes disruptions that result from demand variability by enabling adjustment of product placement according to seasonality, special promotions, changes in customer order patterns, and the like reduce pick times for faster order fulfillment, improve picker productivity, reduce pick errors, improve ergonomics and safety, and reduce capital and operating costs. Slotting and Optimization ensures the placement of items across pick faces based on a wide selection of user-definable criteria, including product pick velocity, product family groups, and product attributes. It helps you minimize travel distances for selection and put-away, reduce replenishments, balance workloads among operators, and increase pick rates while constraining product weight and size, location size, store-level productivity, location capacity, and family groupings. Warehouse operational and safety standards, as well as capital and operating costs, are also considered. Match slots to demand, weight and other product characteristics for faster, more accurate picking resulting in improved productivity. The physical location of inventory in a warehouse is critical to your workforce's ability to fill orders quickly, accurately and safely. Slotting Optimization scientifically determines the best picking profile for your warehouse, and enables you to make timely, intelligent decisions as ordering trends change. Slotting Optimization uses data on each product's physical characteristics and order frequency to calculate a relative value for each position its slot might inhabit within your facility. Then it aggregates these values for all products, and compares millions of move combinations against your user-configured strategies to determine the single optimal layout for your warehouse. As input data changes, such as seasonal ordering trends or new or discontinued products, Slotting Optimization can revise its recommendations incrementally, to keep your warehouse at maximum efficiency without costly overhauls.
  • Kitting
  • Pallet Tracking
  • Replenishment
  • Wave Picking (Batched Orders) - Based on system parameters, orders are grouped into waves (batches). There are numerous options, user can set grouping by customer, delivery route, zip code etc. The pick priority is based on customer type and delivery methods.
  • Shipment Planning - Once stock is allocated, outbound containers are assigned per line item based on the pick zone of items. Per zone, you can specify different shippable containers that should be used and their restrictions such as dimension and weight. WHIZeCargo WMS boxing algorithm fits items into the designated type of container based on dimension of the item or its unit package and weight of item. System selects the best container for the order line items with regards to fit. The system also assigns a packaging-identifier for tracking and "Record of Shipment" purposes for each container. Depending on the quantity allocated, weight and size of the item, the system assigns one or more containers per order line item.
