Logistics BusinessParty Time for German ECommerce Vendor with Descartes WMS

Maskworld, described as Germany’s leading ecommerce vendor for costumes and disguises, has deployed the Descartes pixi* warehouse management system (WMS) to keep pace with peak season spikes in shipping volumes. The software accelerates and streamlines the company’s warehouse and fulfilment processes, driving operational efficiencies while scaling in parallel with order volume fluctuations and expansion strategies.

“Every year prior to Carnival and Halloween, we experience up to a 450% surge in order volumes,” said Roman Matthesius, CEO at Maskworld. “The Descartes pixi* WMS easily scales to support these seasonal demands, increasing operational productivity by 200% and generating efficiency savings of nearly £600K per year. With the flexibility and advanced functionality of the Descartes solution, we’ve been able to easily launch additional webstores and transform our business into a multi-brand model that extends our sales season all year round.”

Descartes pixi* WMS enables ecommerce vendors and omnichannel distributors to automate warehouse management and fulfilment processes from order receipt to shipment processing and returns. The cloud-based solution exchanges information seamlessly with enterprise resource planning (ERP), financial systems and carrier platforms to help control the entire supply chain with minimal manual intervention.
