Warehouse Management System (WMS)

Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a vital part of intralogistics.


Warehouse Management System

In modern warehouses, the WMS is not just inventory management, but it has an active role in managing goods and material flow in warehouses and manufacturing processes. 

The competence of existing WMS systems varies a lot. Some actively participate in material flow management while others may lack such capabilities. Nevertheless, the vital point for customers is that in all solutions the material flow is efficient. 

Our FleetController software controlling the AGV system can easily be integrated into both types of WMS systems and can provide active material flow optimisation at needed levels. FleetController software utilises computing intelligence to navigate the complex layouts of large warehouses and fleet operations to ensure that WMS processes are fully optimised, running seamlessly, and operating as efficiently as possible.

WMS talks to our FleetController software through a REST (Representational State Transfer) API, which makes integration between the two easy, even if the WMS did not come from us. Additionally, we can integrate with any WMS on the market. This easy WMS software integration minimises IT spending, saving you costs while increasing the efficiency of your material handling.


MLE also provides WMS solutions where needed. Originating back in 2008, we have delivered WMS systems in various industries from paper to warehousing. MetRo is an active influencer on the material flow having various alternative interface methods to existing ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and MES (Manufacturing Execution) systems.
