RedPrairie suite of products will enhance its competitive position in the Northern European 3PL market
Stokenchurch, UK – RedPrairie Corporation, a global leader in supply chain technology solutions that enable business process transformation, announced today that DFDS Transport Solutions will implement RedPrairie’s solutions suite as part of its strategic supply chain initiative. DFDS Transport Solutions, a leader in the 3PL northern European market, plans to implement the solution across its distribution network serving over 650 clients beginning in the fourth quarter of this year.
To date DFDS Transport Solutions have been using their own developed legacy system but will now implement RedPrairie DLx® Warehouse to improve logistics performance and customer service; DLx® Labor to achieve greater operating efficiency and planning; and BillingCtl™ for automated and accurate billing of third party logistics (3PL) services to clients; and DutyMaster™ for automated customs management. The new system will be fully implemented in December 2006.
According to Brian Winther Almind, Managing Director, DFDS Transport Solutions “We undertook a six month comprehensive evaluation of all major supply chain solution providers, and right from the first moment it was readily apparent that RedPrairie understood the requirements of the 3PL sector and how they add value.”
The DFDS Transport Solutions multi-national evaluation team unanimously selected RedPrairie to replace their limited and outdated legacy WMS solutions and supplant their manual environments.
Winter Almind continues, “We collectively selected RedPrairie based on a number of factors. We required a supply chain solution with rich functionality to handle all the disparate requirements of our 650 clients, yet at the same time being easy to configure and train people. The RedPrairie integrated suite of solutions will enable DFDS Transport Solutions to achieve our future strategic plans by retaining our existing clients and significantly growing our business.”
Peter Christoffersen, DFDS Transport Solutions Project Leader says, “RedPrairie’s WMS solution is extremely robust and flexible. We will quickly be in a position to configure the system and train our operators for the rollout ourselves. Talking to existing RedPrairie customers, we discovered their implementation track record was second to none.”
Comments RedPrairie EMEA Company Leader, Martin Hiscox, “We are very pleased that DFDS Transport Solutions recognized the competitive edge that RedPrairie products and services will bring them. We are looking forward to the first sites going live and for DFDS Transport Solutions to be enjoying the benefits of cost savings, improved productivity, and better customer service.”
