Tranzone FZCO Pharmaceutical deploys Infor WMS in JAFZA warehouse
Tranzone FZCO Pharmaceutical warehouse in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Freezone has installed a new warehouse management system by Infor, through its local partner SNS.
Infor SCE was installed and implemented to help the company handle and monitor more than 10,000 pallets within three different storage areas depending on item categories, as well as the ability to manage the complexity of pharmaceutical fulfilment.
Tranzone is a subsidiary of Banaja Holdings, operates a pharma 3PL warehouse in Jebel Ali Free Zone and works with leading pharmaceutical companies around the world.
Its services include warehousing storage, inventory management, as well as purchasing and re-invoicing to distributors.
In addition to implementing the Infor SCE solution, SNS consultants worked on reengineering the warehouse operational flows with the objective of streamlining the inbound and outbound activities.
With the new upgraded solution Tranzone can run advanced put-away processes, mixing Euro and Standard pallets in fixed width locations across the entire facility.
The Infor Warehouse Management System allows Tranzone to track its stocks at various levels including production dates, expiry dates, countries of origin, and batch numbers, from receiving to shipping.
All transactions and data are captured in the warehouse using wireless handheld devices enabling fast processing and minimum data entry errors.
The 3PL billing module was implemented and configured with complex billing contracts to calculate storage rates based on pallet count, location utilisation, as well as various handling charges.
“Infor SCE has many new features that will help us increase our operations' efficiency, increase our teams' productivity and provide more visibility to our management on the operations,” said Mohammed Malek, head of IT at Tranzone.
“It was a great step forward for us to upgrade our warehouse management system to Infor SCE. This advanced technology will be an advantage for our company in order to maintain its place at the top in providing high quality 3PL services for healthcare in the region,” he added.
