hours to onboard
Over the years Hub Logistics have developed their operations from logistics consultancy to services in outsourcing of internal logistics and warehousing. Today Hub Logistics run 4 warehouses in Finland and Poland, automated and manual, as well as operates in several customer locations. As their warehousing operations grew and new 3PL customers were onboarded Hub Logistics needed a new warehouse management solution that would better support their operations and strengthen their customers’ business. Among their demands for the new WMS was:
- Ability to integrate with their automation solution
- More advanced functionality
- Easy to develop and adapt to their different customers’ needs and systems
- Faster in implementation than current partner
After much consideration, the choice fell on Consafe Logistics, and in 2017 Hub Logistics implemented Astro WMS® across their warehouses, in only 12 weeks. According to Hub Logistics the biggest advantage with the new system is that more customers and product groups can be added using standard features, instead of needing specific development, making customer onboarding as fast as only a few hours. This means faster and more cost-efficient growth and development of their business. Today Hub Logistics processes 7 000 to 11 000 order lines per day using Astro WMS®, and the new system has also brought benefits such as:
More efficient picking and packing
99,96% order delivery accuracy
Works well not only in warehousing, but in internal logistics as well
Easy and flexible integration with warehouse automation
At the moment Hub Logistics is looking into further optimizing their operations with AI-run Astro WMS® modules such as Pick Route Optimization and Smart Box Calculation. They see a need to adapt their business to a higher degree of smaller e-commerce customer and see Astro WMS® as scalable and flexible enough to drive the innovative company Hub Logistics is known to be.
