Teaneck, New Jersey – Dutch tire maker Magna Tyres has selected US-based Made4net for the supply of warehouse management systems (WMS) & end-to-end supply chain execution software.
In a 6 Oct statement, Made4net said Magna had implemented their WMS at its warehouse in Waalwijk, The Netherlands to gain “real-time control and visibility of inventory throughout its international distribution.”
The new system, it said, will provide “efficiencies, accuracies and visibility” throughout Magna’s extended supply chain which covers 130 countries.
Magna has been on the growth path in recent years, and according to Made4net faced challenges with inventory management.
“With global stock, inventory management is complex, and the company needed tighter control of bonded, non-bonded stock, assembly solutions and serial number registration,” Made4net added.
As part of the project, Magna worked with Made4Logistics, a Dutch-based implementation partner of Made4net, to deploy WarehouseExpert WMS, a supply chain solution claimed to offer ‘a flexible platform that would scale and adapt as business grows.’
"Made4net solutions are quite popular with mid-sized, growing companies like Magna Tyres who need a supply chain solution that is quick to implement,” said David Benkimoun, general manager for EMEA.
The system, said the Made4net official, is “user friendly, scalable and configurable to meet future needs."
