Capitalise on the retail expertise and capabilities of Noatum Logistics, including our robust warehouse management technologies and local capacity. The benefits of greater inventory visibility and control would cascade into other supply chain functions including transportation, warehousing, distribution and customer service
Implementation of the solution started in December 2008. GANT moved its warehouse operations into the Noatum Logistics warehouse facility in Hemel Hempsted, which runs the PKMS® warehouse management system for integrating warehouse, labour, transportation and inventory logistics.
The Noatum Logistics transportation services were based on a “cost-plus” structure, making transportation expenses transparent to GANT while reducing their actual cost-per-shipment charges.
This solution also enabled Noatum Logistics to provide on-site, real-time customer service for GANT, answering their customers’ questions and resolving their issues on the spot.
Since the initial implementation, Noatum Logistics identified and implemented additional efficiencies throughout the GANT distribution process. Building on our success with continuous year-over-year cost savings, GANT now turns to Noatum Logistics for packaging product for its Swedish and German operations and implementing a retail-specific e-commerce process.
