New System Delivers Major Enhancements For Partner Logistics

A new Warehouse Management System (WMS) has been successfully introduced at the Partner Logistics cold store in Wisbech following a four month implementation project.

The new WMS, which is part of a group-wide ICT platform upgrade, aims to standardise the software used across all six Partner Logistics warehouses in order to improve flexibility, increase potential synergy between warehousing and transport and create opportunities to broaden the service portfolio.

Based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the WMS has been developed alongside Windows and Microsoft products and incorporates the latest technology. Extended logistics modules are developed and maintained by Boltrics, who are specialists in developing software for cold stores.

Peter Bryssinck, Implementation Manager at Partner Logistics, says: “We’re very pleased with the successful outcome of our WMS implementation at Wisbech. The new system is highly-advanced and will play a vital role in ensuring Partner Logistics is equipped to deal with the ever-changing demands of the frozen food market well into the future.”

The Wisbech warehouse is the second site to implement the new system, following a successful ‘Go Live’ at Partner Logistics Gloucester earlier in the year. The next sites to convert to the new system will be Leper in Belgium and Bergen op Zoom in the Netherlands this Autumn, followed by Bodegraven and Waalwijk in 2017.

Partner Logistics is a market leader in Europe for the provision of state-of-the-art, highly automated warehousing primarily for frozen foods. It operates six facilities – two in the UK, three in the Netherlands and one in Belgium. Established in 1998, Partner Logistics also works innovatively with transport partners to provide an integrated supply chain solution for clients that include Lamb Weston, Birds Eye, Pinguin and many other leading names in the frozen food industry.
