There were different advantages for Fisheries Supply. The company's WMS system was integrated with a manifesting module that brought considerable enhancement to post- picking operations. For example, by prioritizing Will-Calls for customers needing urgent pick- ups, the WMS can expedite picking and packaging, allowing the item(s) to be ready in as little as 15 minutes.
