Asian food importer and supplier SOP International has selected Sanderson’s Proteus WMS to run their new 60,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Harlow, UK.
Originally established in 1971 as a packer and processor of edible oils, SOP have enjoyed a period of sustained success and growth in the last decade. As a result, in 2003 the business opted to move their head office from Runcorn to Hertford, UK, where it began to import and distribute a wide range of Oriental and Asian foods. SOP’s specialist knowledge enables them to source the highest quality products from approved suppliers throughout the Far East.
In 2017, SOP decided they needed a powerful, innovative, on-premise warehouse management system (WMS) to operate their new, purpose-built warehouse. Sanderson’s Proteus WMS was among those systems which prompted SOP to begin an exploratory phase with the Sanderson team. Having supported SOP International throughout their selection process, Sanderson’s Proteus WMS was chosen.
SOP International Operations Director Raf Chowdry said, “We are looking forward to working with the Proteus WMS team from Sanderson. We really feel they are going to bring a lot to the table, with the ability to advise and guide us in future IT investments. Their system will help keep us both operational and competitive.”
Neil Olsson, Proteus WMS Account Manager said, “We are delighted that SOP International have selected us as their WMS supplier. This will give us the opportunity to work in true partnership with the company to provide them with a state-of-the-art system to match their new warehouse.”
