State-of-the-Art Warehouse Facilities
To address growing industry needs, DEX created several types of facilities including multi-client operations, dedicated stand-alone locations, and DEXPods (self-contained operational units that function in remote locations). DEX’s dedicated warehouse facilities around the world use repeatable, documented processes with technologies that optimize labor scheduling and space usage, resulting in cost savings for clients.
Inventory Management Solutions
After products arrive in the warehouse, DEX optimizes efficiencies through the careful assignment of storage locations. Additionally, we provide clients with the highest levels of flexibility, customization, and customer service using strategic logistics planning to postpone some supply chain activities until client demand is established. Using management and strategic logistics planning within our vast supply chain matrix with suppliers and carriers, we minimize warehousing and storage charges and decrease product turn times.
DEX developed a bar code label integration system for inventory and transaction tracking by location, part, and pallet. As product enters the DEX facility, a small bar code label is affixed to the product. This label and client-specified product data, such as serial number, accessory return, physical damage and product comments (good/bad), is entered into DEX’s database and available to clients through OrderVision, DEX’s 24/7, real-time system. DEX adheres to all retail labeling compliance requirements. DEX’s Warehouse Management System (WMS) automatically optimizes the location of products in the warehouse based on activity level, which reduces order-picking time and associated labor costs. Additionally, DEX has flexible user-defined and configured location-based storage controls for all inventory types.
