Christian Salvesen, a major European third-party logistgics services provider, is buying RedPrairie's warehouse management solution for new site implementations and for a planned replacement program as existing systems become obsolete.
Christian Salvesen operates in seven countries across the industrial, consumer and food sectors. Customers reportedly include Asda, Danone, Carrefour, Ford, GM, Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Tesco and Unilever.
A single, centrally controlled installation will be web-deployed across all of Christian Salvesen's U.K. distribution centers, replacing legacy systems at each location. The system will support all clients and all distribution center activities, such as receiving, putaway, picking, inventory management and stock control, with all functionality available through a browser. User-specific permissions will give clients, end customers and suppliers online access to their account and order information.
"We aim to be recognized as Europe's leading provider of supply chain solutions," says Jan Huizeling, chief information officer at Christian Salvesen. "RedPrairie's Warehouse Management solution will help us achieve this by standardizing a major element of our new implementations and providing us with a single scalable solution going forward. Our RedPrairie implementation will help us improve warehouse efficiency and reduce technology costs; it will support our growth and help us deliver an ever better service to our clients."
