Breda, 31 January 2020 – Warehouse management specialist Consafe Logistics announces that Riedel is optimizing their logistics processes in its distribution center, located in Ede, Netherlands, by utilizing Astro WMS®. Riedel, the Dutch market leader in fruity beverages, is currently implementing the system to replace the limited logistical functionality in their company-wide ERP system, and opted for Consafe Logistics because of their pragmatic approach and the flexibility of the solution.

PASSION FOR FRUITY BEVERAGES

With a passion for fruit, Riedel produces and supplies well-known beverages such as Appelsientje, CoolBest and DubbelFriss. As a production partner they also supply to a number of private labels.

“After we became independent, we started to manage all logistics processes with a company-wide ERP system,” says project manager Bas Nas. “However, due to our successful growth, we encountered a number of limitations with our warehouse management system. We needed to find a solution, so we started looking for a WMS with flexibility, good functionality and potential for expansion. Astro WMS® from Consafe Logistics met these criteria, so that was the best option for us. They pro-actively worked alongside us from the first contact, acting pragmatically and quickly. We also spoke to a number of references that confirmed both the knowledge and experience of Consafe Logistics.”

OPTIMIZE LOGISTICS PROCESSES

“Riedel is a well-known Dutch company with a rich history and strong ambitions for growth” says Henk-Jan van Donkelaar, Chief Sales Officer of Consafe Logistics. “We are pleased that they have chosen Consafe Logistics as a partner for optimizing their logistics processes. Both companies fit together well in terms of culture, and we both have a long-term vision focused on possibilities for process improvements and innovations. In addition to the implementation of Astro WMS®, we are also integrating our software with the existing ERP system used by Riedel, and will ensure that all warehouse staff can work efficiently with it.”
