Onninen has been evaluating several different WMS for some time - work that has resulted in the choice of Astro WMS. We have been looking for a global warehouse management solution that can support our needs for high quality, efficiency and scalability of DC operations - as well as enable us to both harmonize our way of working but still be responsive towards local needs, says Anne Kariniemi, Senior Vice President Logistics, Onninen group.
We are very proud that Onninen has chosen to build its global logistics solutions on Astro WMS. Logistics is an important competitive factor and together we can develop a strong solution that meets Onninens future requirements for expansion, says Robert Jansson, CEO Consafe Logistics Group.
