Video: What’s the Connection Between 3PL WMS, Data, Productivity, and Growth?

    Posted by John Arkontaky on Apr 30, 2019 9:00:00 AM

    Contrary to belief, data alone doesn’t make or break your supply chain operations or business. It’s how you utilize data that makes the difference.

    ContainerWorld, a third-party logistics (3PL) provider in British Columbia, Canada, won more than 90% market share in the beverage and alcohol market. Over 25 years, the company grew its presence to span a large portion of Canada and international freight-forwarding operations. When the 3PL decided to expand deeper in non-alcohol markets, it needed to think differently about its warehouse systems to scale. With the help of its 3PL warehouse management system (WMS) and a willingness to innovate, the logistics services provider was able to add an additional 20% of non-alcohol business to its portfolio.

    For this 3PL company, it all comes back to leveraging data as a catalyst for opportunity.

    Video: Keeping Inventory Traceable During Cross Dock with 3PL WMS

    Posted by John Arkontaky on Apr 26, 2019 11:00:00 AM

    If there’s one constant in third-party logistics (3PL) and multi-tenant supply chain operations, it’s change. It’s the nature of 3PL: evolving customer needs such as direct store delivery or drop shopping; adding automation technology or other efficiency-boosting systems; outfitting a warehouse for new customers; and changes to SLAs are just a few examples. On top of this, there’s ongoing pressure to operate more efficiently, offer value-add services, optimize space, reduce costs, and maximize labor hours.

    There is no silver bullet, “set it and forget it” solution for these challenges. They grow, shift, and sometimes surface out of the blue. For Venture Global, a 3PL operating for over 20 years, improving its cross-dock operations and increasing inventory visibility were the key challenges to leaping forward in their 3PL supply chain business.

    Posted by Ian McCue on Dec 19, 2017 9:00:00 AM

    Helm’s business model is different than that of most companies – and the supply chain challenges it faces are equally unique.

    The business provides branded merchandise, third-party fulfillment and technology solutions to a group of high-profile customers. Clients range from Domino’s Pizza to Merrell Shoes to auto giants like Ford and BMW. Products fulfilled from Helm’s two warehouses range from apparel to car owner manuals to refrigerators and everything in between. Every customer has personalized requirements, and that means Helm must have dynamic, flexible processes.

    One of Helm’s central challenges in meeting customer expectations is shipping 90 percent of its orders same-day. Many of the products Helm ships out for its clients are for one- or two-day events – timing is everything.
