SNS Shifts Real KSA’s Warehouse Into High Gear

Mar 15, 2012

Jeddah, March 15, 2012 — The perfumes in Real KSA’s warehouse are going to smell all the sweeter, now that they have implemented a Warehouse Management System (WMS) through SNS. Or, more accurately, the processes by which the Jeddah-based company—which also sorts, stores and handles makeup and deodorant—will perform ever more sweetly. Higher efficiencies in warehouse practices are one of the specialties of SNS, one of the Gulf’s most highly respected supply-chain management firms.

Jeddah, March 15, 2012 — The perfumes in Real KSA’s warehouse are going to smell all the sweeter, now that they have implemented a Warehouse Management System (WMS) through SNS. Or, more accurately, the processes by which the Jeddah-based company—which also sorts, stores and handles makeup and deodorant—will perform ever more sweetly. Higher efficiencies in warehouse practices are one of the specialties of SNS, one of the Gulf’s most highly respected supply-chain management firms.

Real KSA is the distribution company of MCT Group for the KSA local market, and as such, moves a considerable amount of goods through their main warehouse. The warehouse manages full pallet quantities, as well as pieces and boxes, mainly inbound in pallets or cases. They use standard selective racking and shelving, at around 20-25 degrees. Batch numbers are captured for all perfume and makeup items, and the employees use RF-assissted picking to pull goods for shipment.

Real turned to SNS having proved themselves previously in the implementation of their WMS solution at the MCT DC in Jebel Ali. SNS showed broad expertise in assessing and streamlining all processes that deal with the acquisition, storage and movement of goods, particularly for complex operations. SNS implemented a WMS at Real that will secure the optimal efficiencies of all their goods-processing systems, including high inventory accuracy and a maximized order fulfillment rate. The systems integration was done with Baan ERP to ensure both systems are fully synchronized. Cost savings and ease of operation are always a consequence of improved operational structures, and Real KSA can step confidently forward knowing their processes are tightly aligned.

“We are pleased that the WMS from SNS promises to bring new efficiencies to the movement of our company goods and its services in Jeddah as it had done in Dubai,” said Mr. Naim Boughzala Logistics Manager at Real KSA. “It’s always a pleasure working with a responsive, future-thinking organization like SNS who we consider to be our trusted partner in logistics solutions.”
