Schneider Electric, a supplier of electrical distribution and automation control products and services, has rapidly expanded its logistics operations over the past 10 years. It has consolidated two of its warehouse sites, while at the same time expanding capacity to 50 tons of throughput per day, covering 14,000 product lines. To help manage all of this the company has turned to cWMS Release 10, a warehouse management system that is part of the CDC Software's Supply Chain suite of supply chain solutions.
"We needed to upgrade our warehouse functionality and systems to support our growing business volume and new distribution service in a multi-brand environment. We already have achieved many important benefits using CDC Software's cWMS solution including a delivery fulfillment rate of 99.7%, improved stock accuracy, audit trails, workload monitoring, visibility and increased information," said Andrew Holdroyd, logistics projects manager, Schneider Electric.
Schneider Electric notes that this latest upgrade will allow the company to implement additional capabilities such as cartonization, which will help improve item scanning, picking accuracy and overall quality control.
Schneider Electric is one of the world's leading suppliers of electrical distribution and automation control products and services.Interested in information related to this topic? Subscribe to our Information Technology eNewsletter.
