WCS (Warehouse Control System)

WaCS is a comprehensive, modular application suitable for all types of equipment that make up the solution. It coordinates and supervises all the scheduling, synchronisation and routing operations involved in intralogistics flows. WaCS is directly interfaced with the WMS and guarantees the optimum use of equipment as well as prioritising urgent orders, depending on the departure constraints of carriers.
