RedPrairie Corporation’s Warehouse Management (WMS) and Workforce Management solutions provide new features and billing options to support third party logistics (3PL) providers.
The new features incorporate all of the necessary functions required to optimise a multi-client distribution centre.
The new user-defined billing options span across all operations including receipt check in, putaway, picking, loading, storage, and value-added services.
Together, the new features and billing models provide more flexibility and configurable workflows to third party providers.
“RedPrairie is proud of its history of providing specific supply chain solutions for 3PL providers,” said Tom Kozenski, Vice President of Product Strategy for RedPrairie.
“With an increasing percentage of companies outsourcing their logistics to third party providers, we saw a further opportunity to provide additional tools and features that give 3PL providers the flexibility they need to differentiate themselves in the marketplace.”
Included in the offering are features created for 3PL’s that focus on specific vertical industries including Automotive OEM suppliers, food cold chain storage providers, co-packers that operate in the CPG industry and retailer crossdock facilities.
“As one of the largest public refrigerated warehouse companies in North America, Interstate Warehousing has a long history of providing superior customer service,” according to Matt Helbling, Senior Vice President of Tippmann Group / Interstate Warehousing.
“RedPrairie’s ability to provide Interstate with flexible third-party billing solutions and innovative development processes has been instrumental to our ability to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
