If you ...

– work with groceries and similar items in the FMCG segment (Fast Moving Consumer Goods), you know that companies in this segment are characterized, among other things, by basing their goods handling on the FEFO principle (first expired, first out).

Apport WMS supports the need for a very high degree of control over goods based on expiration dates and the industry’s focus on delivery reliability and traceability, which are necessities when delivering groceries to customers. Grouping goods for dispatch is also a natural element in the structure of Apport WMS.
