How TransCrate Logistics has improved their 3PL warehouse management and picking accuracy to 98%?



About

“TransCrate International Logistics”, formerly known as Kuwait International Removals Co. W.L.L, has grown into an outstanding corporation that offers total logistics management and third party logistics services to the customers across UAE. Right from sourcing raw material to delivery of final product to customer, TransCrate caters to the Middle Eastern market with End-to-End Logistics.

Business Situation

Prior to implementing FalconWMS, TransCrate had hard time to keep up with the demand using their paper-based order picking process, no real time inventory visibility and product tracking capabilities that a WMS could provide to meet increased demand for their growing number of operations.

As a result, the company had thought to discard its homegrown, largely paper-based manual approaches and decided the time was right to invest in top-tier Warehouse Management System (WMS) software.


Key Challenges

Prior to implementing FalconWMS, TransCrate has faced with key challenges including

  • Inventory Accuracy
  • Space Optimization
  • Poor Operator Performance
  • Manual Inventory Handling
  • Obsolete Dispatch Mechanisms
  • Unavailability of real time data

The Solution

While TransCrate had been using traditional manual business approaches for long, the company later recognized that it needed a better, best of breed, warehouse management system (WMS) to underpin the levels of performance and accuracy required to deliver a full 3PL offering in a highly competitive environment.

TransCrate therefore selected the Inventrax’s flagship product FalconWMS to help them achieve this.
