DHL Danzas achieves success with SNS

May '08
SNS a leading supply chain services provider announced that Danzas part of DHL Group, the largest 3PL in the Middle East region has gone live with the Infor WMS provided by SPAN Group. The go-live was at DHL DANZAS' main distribution center, also known as DLC (Danzas Logistic Center) located in the JAFZA area in Dubai. The DC extends over 15,000 square meters with 18 docks located on 3 sides of the warehouse.

The racking system is mainly a Very Narrow Aisle (VNA), with one pallet position per location, in the main chamber, and standard selective in the other three chambers of the warehouse. This DC provides 3PL services for different stores and SKUs include electronic goods as well as FMCG. The Infor WMS implemented by SNS allows DHL Danzas to have full visibility of their stock at the lowest level.

With the RF functionality, the new system allows real-time update of the database and streamlines the warehouse operations from receiving to picking and shipping. The project also included a 7 touch points' integration with their ERP system. This project was one of the most demanding and challenging in terms of WMS environment readiness, training and management : the WMS went live in less than 3 months, and the warehouse operation was only stopped for 1/2 day for the transition to the new WMS.

"As the largest 3PL in the Middle East region, DHL Danzas needed to deal with the best provider in IT solutions for supply chain," said Mr. Biju Nair, DHL Danzas IT Manager. "SNS' expertise allowed us to go live in record time and with the least impact on our operation. We have started witnessing improvements in visibility and operation flow from the first few days."
