Dematic Real Time Logistics was presented with the Wesfarmers Industrial & Safety (WIS) Service Provider of the Year Award at the group’s recent Supplier of the Year Awards in Sydney.
In presenting the award, WIS noted that Dematic was integral to the wireless warehouse rollout providing outstanding service levels, assisting the business with a significant issue, and working with the WIS IT support team to find a resolution.
Dematic’s real time logistics solution for WIS included upgrading more than 100 warehouses and regional distribution centres from paper-based operations to fully integrated paperless systems such as barcoded RF solutions, wireless LANs, RF terminals and associated printing and labelling systems.
The award was accepted by Nathan Taylor, General Manager, Dematic Real Time Logistics, who said that the honour was particularly significant as Dematic was not only compared against other materials handling and logistics IT suppliers but also to all of WIS’ providers from transport and stationery to labour hire.
