Descartes Systems Group (Nasdaq:DSGX) (TSX:DSG), the global leader in uniting logistics-intensive businesses in commerce, announced that B+S Logistik (B+S GmbH Logistik und Dienstleistungen), a leading German logistics service provider (LSP), has expanded its contract logistics business with new business-to-consumer (B2C) ecommerce operations using the Descartes pixi* warehouse management solution (WMS) to support order fulfilment in fashion, food distribution and other segments.
“After only one year, approximately 15% of our business is now B2C ecommerce and a combination of B2B/B2C commerce (omnichannel),” said Manuel Unkel, CEO at B+S Logistik. “Using the Descartes pixi* WMS and its multi-order picking capabilities, we’re able to efficiently process anywhere from 2,000 to 10,000 parcel shipments per day.”
B+S Logistik requires flexibility and scale to support seasonal demands and other types of peaks in consumer buying behaviours inherent in the industries they serve. With Descartes, the company can onboard new customers quickly and cost effectively. B+S Logistik’s implementation took only eight weeks and provides robust capabilities to manage the entire ecommerce fulfilment lifecycle including order receipt; pick, pack and ship; item availability; and visibility tracking.
