Leading third party logistics provider will gain competitive advantage with improved distribution and labour management capabilities
RedPrairie Corporation, a global leader in supply chain technology solutions that enable business process transformation, announced today that Wagner Industries, a leading third party logistics provider, has purchased RedPrairies DLx Warehouse for distribution management and DLx Labor for workforce performance management. The solutions will help Kansas City based Wagner meet growing customer demands for sophisticated distribution, visibility and complete systems integration.
For 60 years Wagner Industries has provided asset based supply chain solutions as distribution center, transportation, and packaging services. Wagner plans to implement the RedPrairie solutions at a 500,000-square-foot Kansas City facility in July, and then will roll the solutions out to another nine facilities over the next twelve months. Wagner has customers in a variety of industries, including consumer packaged goods, retail, paper, and food and beverage.
We have made a commitment to our customers to provide the very best supply chain solutions and we see RedPrairie as an essential tool in the delivery of our services. Many of our customers have relationships with major retailers who have constantly increasing retail-specific mandates. Those customers in turn look to us to provide the more sophisticated distribution capabilities to meet those requirements. We needed new technology to meet those needs, said John E. Wagner, Sr., Chairman for Wagner Industries.
Wagner continued, We chose RedPrairie as our supply chain technology partner because of the proven scalability, capacity to deploy in a modular fashion and because of the flexibility to meet constantly changing business requirements.
Comments John Jazwiec, RedPrairie Company Leader, Third party logistics companies tend to be our most demanding customers, due to the number of customers they serve and variety of goods they handle. Technology is a true differentiator for third party logistics providers, as new capabilities become a focal point for new business opportunities. We consider our relationship with Wagner to be a partnership that will continuously evolve to provide new offerings to meet changing customer needs.
