Tran­zone FZCO Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal de­ploys In­for WMS in JAFZA ware­house

Logistics Middle East - - UPDATE -

Tran­zone FZCO Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal ware­house in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free­zone has in­stalled a new ware­house man­age­ment sys­tem by In­for, through its lo­cal part­ner SNS.

In­for SCE was in­stalled and im­ple­mented to help the com­pany han­dle and mon­i­tor more than 10,000 pal­lets within three dif­fer­ent stor­age ar­eas de­pend­ing on item cat­e­gories, as well as the abil­ity to man­age the com­plex­ity of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal ful­fil­ment.

Tran­zone is a sub­sidiary of Banaja Hold­ings, op­er­ates a pharma 3PL ware­house in Jebel Ali Free Zone and works with lead­ing phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies around the world.

Its ser­vices in­clude ware­hous­ing stor­age, in­ven­tory man­age­ment, as well as pur­chas­ing and re-in­voic­ing to dis­trib­u­tors.

In ad­di­tion to im­ple­ment­ing the In­for SCE so­lu­tion, SNS con­sul­tants worked on reengi­neer­ing the ware­house op­er­a­tional flows with the ob­jec­tive of stream­lin­ing the in­bound and out­bound ac­tiv­i­ties.

With the new up­graded so­lu­tion Tran­zone can run ad­vanced put-away pro­cesses, mix­ing Euro and Stan­dard pal­lets in fixed width lo­ca­tions across the en­tire fa­cil­ity.

The In­for Ware­house Man­age­ment Sys­tem al­lows Tran­zone to track its stocks at var­i­ous lev­els in­clud­ing pro­duc­tion dates, ex­piry dates, coun­tries of ori­gin, and batch num­bers, from re­ceiv­ing to ship­ping. All trans­ac­tions and data are cap­tured in the ware­house us­ing wire­less hand­held de­vices en­abling fast pro­cess­ing and min­i­mum data en­try er­rors.

The 3PL billing mod­ule was im­ple­mented and con­fig­ured with com­plex billing con­tracts to cal­cu­late stor­age rates based on pal­let count, lo­ca­tion util­i­sa­tion, as well as var­i­ous han­dling charges.

“In­for SCE has many new fea­tures that will help us in­crease our op­er­a­tions’ ef­fi­ciency, in­crease our teams’ pro­duc­tiv­ity and pro­vide more vis­i­bil­ity to our man­age­ment on the op­er­a­tions,” said Mo­hammed Malek, head of IT at Tran­zone. “It was a great step for­ward for us to up­grade our ware­house man­age­ment sys­tem to In­for SCE. This ad­vanced technology will be an ad­van­tage for our com­pany in or­der to main­tain its place at the top in pro­vid­ing high qual­ity 3PL ser­vices for health­care in the re­gion,” he added.
