Chinese 3PL goes to Manhattan

Chinese third party logistics firm KW Logistics has selected Manhattan’s SCALE (Supply Chain Architected for Logistics Execution) software to support its expansion plans.

The SCALE system will first be installed at its Lianhua distribution centre in Shanghai and will subsequently be implemented across the rest of its distribution network in mainland China.

Zhang Qian, IT director at KW Logistics said: “They offer the scalability and flexibility we require. Our industry is extremely dynamic and we must be able to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers – sometimes at very short notice. During a retail promotion for example, a store that usually produces 1,000 orders per day can generate more than 10,000 orders in the space of a few hours.”

KW Logistics operates four warehouses in Shanghai.  It plans to build more warehouses in Hangzhou in the second half of this year, and subsequently in Beijing and Guangzhan.
