Case study about the Warehouse Management at Fr. Meyer's Sohn

Initial Situation

Late 2019 one of the world’s largest paper producer approached FMS to set up a warehousing solution in Los Angeles | USA for large tissue paper rolls being imported from the Far East. One of the key customer requirements was providing real-time reporting on inventory status of each individual paper roll and on paperwork such as receiving reports and packing lists for trucks shipped from the warehouse.

Solution

The Warehouse module in Cruise Control FMS fitted the customer expectations and in January 2020 first containers started to arrive at our warehouse.

At that time the volume was forecasted at 40 containers per month. But then COVID-19 happened. Quickly the demand for tissue paper exploded and more inventory in the US was needed to support Just-in-Time deliveries demanded by service sensitive US buyers.

Within 6 months FMS set up additional warehousing solutions near the ports of Houston, Norfolk and New York, all covered by Cruise Control. The monthly volume has increased to 250 import containers per month.
