Panalpina ahead of schedule with WMS roll-out

Panalpina says it is ahead of schedule in rolling out a single WMS system across its logistics network, with 33 sites now operational around the world.

It started the roll-out of the JDA WMS three years ago as part of a strategy to become the first third-party logistics provider to improve inventory management by helping customers increase asset velocity – moving products more quickly and reducing warehoused stock.

“The fast roll-out of the JDA warehouse management system worldwide is another way that Panalpina demonstrates its strategic commitment to growing in the logistics arena,” said Mike Wilson, global head of logistics at Panalpina.

Panalpina developed its own rapid deployment model for JDA WMS to offer customers a standardise approach across the globe.
