NEW YORK - Oct 18, 2016
Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud, today announced it has deployed WMS from the Infor SCE suite at PDC Logistics, one of the largest automotive logistics operators owning several warehouses in the Moscow region.
PDC Logistics offers a wide range of logistics services all over Russia including international inbound transportation, warehousing and value added logistics to such automotive giants as Mitsubishi, Mazda, MAN Truck and Busses, Geely, Hino and Haval. Every day PDC Logistics stores, sorts, ships and packs several thousand different item numbers from truck cabins and engines to small oil rings. The company needed a reliable solution to manage its growing business, centralize stock and optimize warehousing operations.
PDC logistics chose to implement Infor WMS for its flexibility and enhanced functionality. The integration was carried out by Infor partner LT Management, and enabled the company to automate most warehousing operations including picking and sorting. Thus, average picking time has decreased from 4 minutes to 45 seconds. WMS provides the ability to do real-time stock checking, combine orders and split them over lines which leads to increased stock reliability and speed. Thus PDC Logistics has managed to halve the claim rate which is now one of the lowest in the industry - 0.02% on line level. Infor WMS also enables the company to make special reports adjusted to the needs of their customers and provides seamless integration with 1C CRM system.
"You can imagine what it is like to handle four warehouses with a lot of paper-work on non-integrated IT-systems," said Karel Schnock, Executive Director at PDC Logistics. "When we implemented Infor SCE suite, productivity increased, stock reliability went up, efficiency got higher, and our business was growing. And due to Infor WMS we could manage that growth."
"Today logistics operators in the automotive industry face quite a number of challenges, they are forced to cut costs without lowering service-level. Infor solutions help to optimize warehouse performance and improve efficiency, providing flexible adjustment to customer demands," said Dmitry Martynov, official Infor representative in Russia and the CIS.
PDC Logistics plans to continue cooperation with Infor and LT Management, regularly update the WMS system and introduce some new options including picking by voice.
