The Dutch 3PL and logistics specialist Timmermans have completed the launch of the OrderFlow warehouse management environment in their Etten-Leur distribution centre.
Timmermans will use OrderFlow to provide 3PL services to MedicAnimal, who already use OrderFlow in their UK warehouses.
OrderFlow gives MedicAnimal the same level of visibility into the Timmermans operations as they have into their own warehouses but allows Timmermans to define completely different workflows and processes that suit their own operation.
Realtime Despatch went onsite to discuss the details of the Timmermans configuration a couple of weeks before launch and were onsite again when OrderFlow went live.
Enrico Rijnen of Timmermans worked closely with us and the MedicAnimal team to make sure the migration from their legacy system went smoothly.? Key members of the Timmermans team came over to the UK to use OrderFlow in the MedicAnimal warehouses before launch and MedicAnimal sent two of their team leaders to be onsite for the weekend in which the migration took place.
The implementation included support for four new courier services; Mondial Relay, Colis Prive, DPD Netherlands and Post NL. Sander de Wilt led the end-to-end system testing and data migration. The planning and testing all paid off, the migration went very smoothly with no significant impact to the service provided to MedicAnimal.
Our thanks Enrico, Sander and the team at Timmermans for their hard work and for their hospitality.
