An elegant SCM IT solution: WMF products in “transparent” containers from Asia
Logistics giant Panalpina organizes the transport chains of Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF) from Asia to Europe. The focus is on WMF’s core objective of synchronizing and permanently streamlining its enterprise-wide production and logistics processes. This means integrating many suppliers and other logistics service providers with diverse system requirements.
To meet this objective across the global supply chain, both companies turn to the SCM solution of AX4, a cloud-based logistics IT platform from AXIT.
„Both we as the logistics provider and WMF as our customer benefit in equal measure from the use of PAN AX4. Using tools for control and transparency makes it easier to manage the supply chain.“
Günther Denk, Head of IT Worldwide, Panalpina
Panalpina uses PAN AX4 to provide WMF with a customized, single-source transport IT solution that benefits both sides. The centralized data platform provides a high level of transparency, smart control tools simplify supply chain management, and the new transport management system yields consolidation benefits. Costly “firefighting” is a thing of the past: Better forecasting of incoming goods and fewer special transports reduce inventory levels and transport costs.
Both parties are very happy and have already integrated additional WMF subsidiaries.
