Warehouse Control System (WCS)

Our Warehouse Control System is an integral component of our Warehouse Execution System. The Warehouse Control System directs real-time activities within the warehouse and distribution centers rather than individually controlling automation devices. It provides management with a comprehensive view of the warehouse. This includes everything from basic conveyors to more complex systems like sorters, automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS), goods-to-person, palletizing/depalletizing, print and apply labeling, and other technologies. This is accomplished by interacting with programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and managing inventory flow throughout the facility.

International Intimates

“We wanted to ensure a smooth transition to the new system, so we began by focusing on outgoing orders first. Once that was up and running, we tackled inventory tracking and control. System implementation took 10 months from start to finish. We had absolutely no disruption in operations.”

Tire’s Warehouse

“We needed an automated WMS system to help us solve problems with our inventory control, performance levels within our warehouses, and space utilization issues in multiple locations. Royal 4 worked with our IT team to ensure a smooth integration with our Navision ERP system.”

Cherry Republic

“Being a food manufacturer operating on lean principles with complex distribution we required a tightly integrated system that would be able to scale out to all of our locations. We are happy with our decision I am pleased to endorse this fine organization to any company looking for supply chain services.”

Our Warehouse Control System is responsible for:

  • Increase warehouse throughput and capacity.
  • Locating and correcting malfunctions as soon as possible.
  • Choosing the most efficient product routing and sending instructions to the equipment controllers.
  • Increasing visibility in daily tasks.
  • Ensure material visibility throughout the automation chain.
Warehouse Control System Uses


Warehouse control systems are critical for those who run a highly automated facility to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that orders are tracked as they move through the facility using automation systems. Our WCS connect warehouse management software and material handling equipment. To improve your warehouse completely, it is often not enough to simply change applications; you must also improve systems and processes.
