Doha: The Gulf Warehousing Company (GWC) has completed the implementation of INFOR WMS, an Enterprise Warehouse Management System geared at automating and optimising its inventory base of over 450 customers under third party and fourth party logistics services, under an umbrella of over 250,000 square metres of built-up facilities.

GWC is the first logistics company in the Middle East to implement the latest version 10.2 of INFOR, including a fully customised billing module that allows for flexible contract arrangements with customers in a wide variety of business verticals. For implementation, GWC partnered with Supply Network Solutions (SNS), a leading supply chain consultant in the Middle East. 

With hundreds of thousands of stored items under GWC warehousing, GWC needed a powerful WMS to seamlessly capture inventory attributes and automate the warehouse processes, benefit from paperless RF wireless handhelds, and retain full traceability of their goods from point of receiving to point of shipping from the warehouse. 

The WMS system is hosted on servers at GWC’s own ISO 27000 certified Data Centre at the Logistics Village Qatar. 

“WMS is the technology backbone of our warehousing operations, and our transition to the most advanced WMS in the world is one that we are proud of,” said Nader Hakim, COO, GWC.
