High quality products combined with high quality services and ever shorter delivery times: over the years, the market has increasingly demanded a combination of reliability, fast turnaround, and higher performance and ever more immediate solutions: while on the one hand the number of articles in our catalogue has grown to enable us to satisfy ever more specific requirements, we have also managed to guarantee ever faster turnaround in filling orders.
Supplying lifting systems with quality and fast response
With a view to continuously improving the quality of our lifting system supply services, the ability to manage a high capacity and well organised warehouse is of fundamental importance
To provide this level of service, and even improve it over the years, ten years ago Carcano set up a warehouse which combines high capacity and advanced organisation with completely computerised management, thus enabling us to stock a large number of finished products in response to market demand.
The warehouse, which can hold up to 12,000 pallets of finished product, has been organised in such a way as to fulfil several weeks of demand for each product in our catalogue: the goods are held in the warehouse ready for shipping and need only be picked and packed, so that delivery times are extraordinarily fast.
Automated management of lifting systems supplies
Orders received by our sales department are passed directly to the warehouse, which is fully equipped to supply lifting systems and rope and chain accessories
The warehouse inventory of lifting systems solutions and rope and chain accessories listed in the Carcano catalogue is refreshed every day, ready to be picked and sent off to the client: all controls have already been run, along with all other processing.
The computer system connects the sales offices, which book the orders, to the warehouse: orders are thus forwarded directly via the in-house network, which registers the picking missions. This means that inventory is always under control.
The warehouse thus need only process incoming orders and pick the necessary products, which are held in rigorous order to ensure fast and efficient processing. The order can thus be filled and ready for shipping in a very short time.
Lifting system inventory management
As orders are forwarded to the warehouse and picking missions filled, the computer system sends the data required to refresh the inventory to the production departments
As orders are forwarded to the warehouse by the sales offices, the computerised inventory management system maintains an exhaustive image of the warehouse and a production planning system: this means that all processes are optimised so that products picked from stock are replaced as soon as possible and new orders can be filled promptly and efficiently.
This organisation benefits not only the production of the lifting systems and rope and chain accessories listed in our catalogue, but also the production of custom products, which can thus count on the power of our tried and tested advanced management system.
