NSK Europe Ltd selects Kewill Interchain to optimize their Logistic processes for the European market

Kewill Interchain the leading supplier of global supply chain execution software and services, announced that NSK Europe Ltd has selected Chainware to support their European logistic & distribution processes. The globally recognised Japanese producer of bearings and other automotive products has selected Kewill Interchain to implement the Chainware iWarehousing, iTransport and iCustoms solution at their European (factory) Warehouses, EDCs and satellite warehouses.

After a careful selection process we felt Kewill provided the best fit for our specific requirements and company culture. We were impressed with their project approach, thoroughness and presentation of the solution offered, said Klaus Stahlmann, Managing Director for NSK European Bearing Business Unit. Choosing the right product to enable our next generation logistics solution is vital to our business.

The project will focus on delivering a solution that supports NSK internationally in both a multi-site and multi-modal environment. Using multiple modules from the Kewill Interchain Chainware suite including iWarehousing, iTransport and the iCustoms modules, the solution will be implemented in a scalable technology environment by running on multiple database and application servers to deal with the large volumes of transactions and activities that will be managed on a day to day basis.  The solution allows NSK to support their Radio Frequency (RF) enabled distribution centres (DCs) and factory warehouses connected to their Materials Handling System (MHS) and utilising best-of-breed backward scheduling functionality (trip driven release of warehouse orders) while supporting Virtual Warehousing.
Ron Vollebregt, Managing Director - Kewill Interchain stated, We are delighted that NSK has selected Kewill Interchain as its Supply Chain Execution and Logistics solutions partner.  The Chainware solution is our integrated and modular product suite of applications for logistic service providers covering global supply chain order management, execution software for forwarding of air, sea and land cargo, transport and distribution, public warehousing and international trade logistics (Customs handling and duty management). Vollebregt continued, It has always been Interchains vision to develop best-of-breed supply chain execution applications that are always one step ahead of the markets requirements.  When we win a deal like this with NSK we are reassured that the effort we have expended in pursuing this goal has been well invested.
