Ensuring end-to-end visibility

AN end-to-end bespoke IT management system at Walkerpack means the logistics company has the versatility and skills to meet clients’ high standards.

The Brackmills-based company has its own in-house system that provides industry standard functionality from start to finish to receive, pick, pack, ship and manage stocks for customers, who also have visibility of their stock and transactions via an online portal, said Walkerpack’s Sales Director Steve Tiley.

“This solution, developed principally in Microsoft .NET and SQL Server systems, allows us to provide a flexible solution to warehouse management for our customers, as part of our warehouse management and added service offerings,” he added. “This allows our customers to have the Walkerpack warehouse management process as a single offering.

“The system utilises handheld devices running Windows software to provide barcode scanning and common functionality to our operators in the warehouse area. The system also contains a desktop component and an automation program to enable supervision and EDI respectively.

“Really, without an end-to-end system the integrity of customers’ own stock cannot be guaranteed and then you have also to consider the importance of fast and accurate transactions such as picking, packing and put away. Finally, to be effective the reporting and KPI has to be system-based.”

Walkerpack has been consolidating, packing, exporting and shipping customer products to all parts of the world for many years and continues to build on this expertise. The company has an impressive reputation for providing these specialist services to a wide range of customers and can provide an efficient solution to ensure that your products reach your customer safely and on time.

Steve said: “The benefit for our customers is that they have the opportunity to work with an experienced company that offer the very best IT solutions. It’s one of the reasons that we have had the opportunity to work with so many leading brands.”
