LFS ModulesLFS Modules

LFS - our comprehensive solution for your specific tasks and requirements.

In its standard version, LFS comes as a pre-configured starter package. This standard package can be used right out of the box and across multiple sites, and fulfills the basic needs placed on active warehouse management by means of largely standardized, basic logistics requirements. All additional modules are already pre-installed and can be activated at any time, as needed. The warehouse management system generates excellent economic benefits thanks to its use of starter modules, even for small warehouses.  And, thanks to being highly customizable, the LFS system can also and easily be adapted to future, customer-specific process workflows. LFS grows alongside your needs and requirements.

Efficient warehouse logistics are counted amongst the deciding factors for success in all areas, such as trade and production, and for logistics service providers as well. For Just-in-Sequence strategies, the supply chain must be perfectly organized and function smoothly. In this respect, the LFS is a central building block in your supply chain. This powerful system ensures optimized processes, maximum transparency and efficiency in the warehouse - and consequently in the entire supply chain. The result is a noticeable reduction in your logistics costs.
