A workplace of 60,000 square meters
momox’ large media library with around seven million stored items is located near the exhibition hall Neue Messe in Leipzig. More than 700 employees handle the logistics processes involved in the purchasing and selling of different types of media items (books, films, CDs and games). Each day, we receive up to 100,000 media items here that we have purchased via our platform momox.de. True to our motto “We give used products a new home”, we resell these items via our own online shop medimops.de, after having performed a thorough quality control.
Are you interested in books, films and CDs, and would you like to work in our giant media library? You will find our current job offers here.
momox is always on the move! In the world of internet trade the situation can change rapidly as orders wax and wane. Marketing measures or even the weather can have a great impact on the selling and buying behavior of customers. On the one hand, this requires a high degree of flexibility; on the other hand, it frequently makes the processes – and everyday work – exciting.
The work processes connected to purchase and sales can be divided into two large divisions: the inbound division is responsible for handling incoming items, whereas the outbound division deals with the processing of used products that have been sold.
The receiving division is where the goods are received. The packages that we receive every day are carefully opened here, excess packing material is removed and the delivery note scanned. In this way the customer at home can track in real time the processing of his products.
In the checking division it is all about having an eye for detail, since this is where our quality control takes place. Our employees check every single item, scanning them and evaluating their quality and how they look, before entering the details into our computer system. In this way, the customer can be informed about the condition of the item for sale at www.medimops.de.
In the stacking & stocking division the purchased products are entered into our stocking system. The exact position of each stocked item is recorded by scanner – and can therefore be quickly located at all times.
Our outbound division is subdivided into the picking and the packing divisions.
In the picking division a good sense of orientation is an absolute must. Here the products ordered by the customer are gathered from the shelf system. For this purpose, we use a so-called picking list, which the employees receive at a computer terminal. The picking list states the exact location of the relevant item, including shelf, shelf compartment and position. The located items are first transported on the picking cart and then transferred to the packing division via our conveyor system.
This is where our employees pack, frank and ship the ordered items.
