Engagement Summary

Warehouse optimization is the process in which the use of space, time, and resources in a warehouse is made more efficient by way of automation and planning, while simultaneously reducing errors and improving flexibility, internal management, and customer satisfaction.

Pharma companies often have no or little visibility into their warehouses if they lack automated warehouse optimization solutions. This pharma company approached Quantzig to leverage its expertise in warehouse optimization solutions to deploy automation to optimize their warehouse and supply chain process.
