12 Jul Foreway automates logistics with RedPrairie software
WAUKESHA, Wis. – Foreway, a manager of integrated logistics, is implementing a suite of integrated supply chain execution solutions from RedPrairie, a Waukesha-based provider of supply chain execution solutions.
Foreway will apply numerous applications from RedPrairie’s DigitaLogistix suite of supply chain execution solutions, including RedPrairie’s entire transportation suite. The move is hoped to improve the company’s operational control and efficiency, and transition Foreway from a manual to an automated environment.
Several aspects of the solution are believed to benefit Foreway, including RedPrairie’s real-time streaming optimization engine, COPLEX; LENS, the suite’s visibility tool and RedPrairie’s DLx Scorecard solution.
“We need a technology provider that offers more than just standard transportation management capabilities. We really want a full-scale supply chain execution solution that can provide us detailed analysis for real-time decision-making. The solution also has to be compatible with multiple types of customer technology. RedPrairie’s solutions exceeded our expectations,” said Lee Bulson, Foreway marketing and customer development manager.
As a Michigan-based logistics company, Foreway ships to more than 500 destinations in North America.
