Warehouse Management

Stay in control of your transit goods and inventory in long-term storage, across numerous virtual warehouses.

ForwardOffice Warehouse Management includes Transit Warehousing to let staff control consignments as they move around, and Stock Control to keep track of inventory in long-term storage which is not related to current freight operations.

Automate stock updates and movements by combining the module with a number of scanning devices – it supports all the main barcoding standards. Reporting and auto-charging are built in, as well as inbound and outbound logistics.

Warehouse Management can also be used together with a range of other ForwardOffice modules – including Operations and Transport – to give you a complete software solution.
