How do you use the LFS warehouse management system? How do I get a feel for the processes in the warehouse?

How are these processes controlled in LFS? The "LFS for Beginners" course introduces the LFS user interface and looks at all the logistics processes in the warehouse. From goods incoming and putaway through picking individual quantities, removing full pallets from storage, to packing and loading, the course runs through all the key stations in the lifecycle of a delivery with the LFS warehouse management system.

This gives you a basic understanding of the operational processes in LFS. The course is designed for anyone who uses LFS - whether in the warehouse, the control center or IT.

The course focuses on practical exercises in our fully equipped training center, so that you can follow and practice the processes in a real warehouse, not just on the computer. We have the latest generation of mobile data recording equipment too, so that the course is also useful for operating staff who work with the LFS warehouse management system on the warehouse floor.

As all further training courses require a basic understanding of LFS, completing this course is also an important requirement for more advanced courses.
