ST. JACOBS, Ont. – The Home Hardware distribution centre in Debert has launched its Warehouse Management System (WMS).

The new system is part of Merchandise in Motion (MiM), a proprietary logistics management design consisting of the Warehouse Management System and a Transportation Management System.

These new systems will facilitate efficient operations and maximize resources to ensure the supply chain continues to be the best in the industry.

“The supply chain is evolving at a record pace as customers demand more services and value in shorter delivery times at a lesser cost - WMS has the power to meet these demands,” said John Dyksterhuis, vice-president, distribution, Home Hardware Stores Limited. “This comprehensive level of logistics management, from product orders to quick and reliable delivery, can’t be found anywhere else.

WMS moves products smoothly through the entire supply chain and decreases operating costs.

“It’s our goal to ensure we continue to provide the best service to our dealer-owners so they can provide the best service to their customers,” said Terry Davis, CEC, Home Hardware Stores Limited.

“As Home Hardware grows and we add new dealers and customers, we continue to evaluate the capacity, efficiency, accuracy, cost and speed of our logistics system to ensure it best meets the needs of our dealer-owners and we remain the industry leader.
