The new system, which is part of a group-wide platform upgrade to standardise the software used at six Partner Logistics warehouses, will improve flexibility, increase potential synergy between warehousing and transport and create opportunities to broaden the service portfolio, the company says.

Based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, the warehouse management system has been developed alongside Windows and Microsoft products. Extended logistics modules are developed and maintained by Boltrics, which specialists in developing software for cold stores.

Peter Bryssinck, implementation manager, Partner Logistics said: “We’re very pleased with the successful outcome of our WMS implementation at Wisbech. The new system is highly-advanced and will play a vital role in ensuring Partner Logistics is equipped to deal with the ever-changing demands of the frozen food market well into the future.”

The Wisbech warehouse is the second site to implement the new system, following a successful ‘Go Live’ at Partner Logistics Gloucester earlier in the year. The next sites to convert to the new system will be Ieper in Belgium and Bergen op Zoom in the Netherlands this Autumn, followed by Bodegraven and Waalwijk in 2017.
