About the Project

Jeddah, April 2013 – SNS, the leading provider of supply chain consultancies and solutions in the Gulf and Middle-East, is proud to announce the go-live of the Infor Warehouse Management solution at Al-Talayi warehouse in Jeddah, the largest distribution network of Bridgestone tires in Saudi Arabia and the largest distributor of Bridgestone in the Middle East and North Africa.

Al-Talayi company limited is the exclusive Bridgestone's Tires and batteries in Saudi Arabia with headquarters in Jeddah, operating 20 Tire Service center and 9 wholesale points of sale geographically dispersed in the cities of the Kingdom. Al-Talayi built a state of the art 25,000 SQM warehouse in Mahjar Areaand equipped it with all that is necessary to handle such a demanding operation including the use of specialized equipment for unloading large tires. Al-Talayi contracted SNS to implement a best-of-breed WMS to ensure that the facility operates at its highest capacity.

The Infor WMS solution manages pallets and pieces movements in a warehouse that stores over 1757different products. As is required by this category of items, the Infor WMS allows the tracking of batch numbers, production and expiry dates from time of receiving until shipping. All transactions and data are captured in the warehouse with the aid of wireless handheld devices ensuring fast processing and minimum data entry errors. To cater for high density storage systems, the WMS allows for dynamic inventory allocation ensuring the users confirms their pallet selection in real-time at picking.

The Infor WMS solution was seamlessly integrated with Infor LN ERP by SNS technical consultants to ensure both systems’ data is constantly in sync. Both systems handle the receiving of around 300 lines and the shipping of 250 lines on a daily basis.

“The SNS team was dedicated to the success of our WMS project,” said, Mr. Abdulbaset Moafa, Supply Chain Manager at Al-Talayi. “Their professionalism and experience helped ensure a smooth and swift go-live.”

“We are pleased to go-live with another great name as Al-Talayi in Saudi Arabia,” said Mohammed Obaidah, Director of Services at SNS. “SNS proves itself once more the leader in WMS solutions in the region.”
