Made4net WMS to Drive New Distribution Center for Automotive Maintenance Products
Hackensack, N.J. September 18, 2019. Made4net, a global provider of supply chain execution solutions, announced today that BG Products Inc., a market leader for top quality automotive maintenance products, has selected its warehouse management system to drive its new distribution center in El Dorado, KS.
As part of the overall strategic plan for continued growth, BG partnered with LeanCor, a leading supply chain consulting provider, to provide a full warehouse design, lead a WMS selection, and ensure their new distribution center adopts and leverages best practices to support growth and supply chain needs.
BG plans to utilize the Made4net WMS to gain end-to-end supply chain transparency and satisfy increasing vendor compliance requirements. The basic capabilities of the existing systems, were no longer a good fit to support the new distribution center and BG’s vision to have visibility of inventory, not only when the product enters the warehouse, but way before when it exists the production line at the manufacturing plant.
Critical functionality requirements included the ability to manage multiple facilities, pick large orders with multiple pickers simultaneously, and drive replenishment in real time, which was a constraint in achieving timely fulfilment, to name a few.
“At BG Products, we’re committed to providing best of class services to our customers,” said Jeremy Henry, Director of Operations at BG Products Inc. “The Made4net WMS provides the flexibility for us to properly manage our flow of inventory from production all the way into our new DC, and leverage our fulfillment capabilities in the various sales and distribution channels.” Said Henry.
“In addition to the robust functionality offered by the Made4net WMS, BG chose us due to our tight and seamless integration to Sage Enterprise Management ERP”, said Dan Waters, Vice President of Sales at Made4net. “We are excited to partner with BG and LeanCor to automate the new DC using the made4net WMS” said Waters.
