The Challenge

ARD had a requirement to deliver parts to a Major Luxury Auto manufacturer. This had to be done Just-In-Time (JIT) and Just-in-Sequence (JIS) with Very Narrow Aisle Storage (VNA) and utilizing an Automated Storage Retrieval System (ASRS). ARD needed a fully integrated warehouse management system that could meet all these specific requirements and optimize the loading of Specialized Delivery/Transportation by our fleet of box trucks.

WISE manages Inbound, Value Added Services, Outbound, ASRS integration and the Sequencing for JIT deliveries. This included load planning, delivery scheduling and EDI ASN confirmations.
