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.

    How to Optimize Your Supply Chain With Continuous Process Improvement

    Posted by John Arkontaky on Apr 22, 2019 9:00:00 AM

     

    Implementing Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) will position you for success in a hypercompetitive market.

    The most critical challenges facing modern businesses today are twofold: how to adapt to rapidly changing market conditions and evolving consumer expectations. The strategy that worked last year — or even last month — may require an overhaul to meet current demands.

    Weathering these changes requires flexibility—not only from systems such as your warehouse management system (WMS), but also from the people and processes supporting your supply chain. The issue is that achieving operational potential is a moving target. There’s no mountain top to summit. Rather, it’s an ongoing pursuit of lowering costs and moving inventory more efficiently to meet your customers’ rising expectations. The organizations that do this best don’t just buy new technology; they look for efficiencies in the day-to-day details.
