Berger Transfer Introduces New Storage & Warehouse Management System to their 16 Nationwide Locations
Saint Paul, Minnesota November 06, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Minneapolis, MN – The US warehousing and storage industry includes about 7,000 companies with combined annual revenues of about $26 billion. Total US manufacturers' shipments, an indicator of demand for warehousing and storage facilities and services, rose 5.3 percent year-to-date in July 2012 compared to the same period in 2011. With the current economic trend in the demand of warehousing and storage, Berger Transfer has implemented a new real-time storage and warehouse management system each of its 16 locations nationwide to enhance their comprehensive warehousing, supply chain management and supply chain execution solutions.
The warehouse management system (WMS), Windfall Warehouse & Inventory Systems, provides an optimized warehouse management system that will quickly guide goods and products through Berger's warehouses which leads to shorter storage periods that will increase quicker procurement of inventory in each warehouse. It will also provide bin and pick management for Berger's customers. This allows Berger to deliver orders to their customers more efficiently by organizing every warehouse to track the exact location of items in storage. Berger will be able to pick and fulfill orders faster for every item that needs to be shipped. Best of all, Berger is now able to provide every customer detailed, online real-time reporting of the exact location of their inventory that is currently in storage or out for delivery.
Because Berger is a full-service transportation, storage and warehouse provider, with large climate-controlled warehouse facilities located across the country. Berger provides record data management, pickup and delivery of products along with inventory management and many other third-party logistics capabilities that are standard in each of its 16 locations.
