Del Norte Distribution Selects Datex’s FootPrint® as Their 3PL Warehouse Management System

A top provider of temperature-controlled food distribution services in North America finds improved order accuracy with real-time visibility.

Clearwater, FL, January 28, 2010 --( Del Norte Distribution, a leading third-party refrigerated warehouse located in Oxnard, California, has chosen Datex Corporation as their WMS provider. Core services offered by Del Norte at their 125k sq. ft. “Primus Certified” and “Davis Fresh Certified” warehouse include temperature controlled storage, ozone-purified rooms, custom ripening, repack, and trans-loading, as well as asset based trucking. Because their existing warehouse management system was unable to meet the varying needs of their clientele, Del Norte sought a solution that would enhance their speed and flexibility, allowing them to exceed their customer expectations.

Datex FootPrint® 3PL Warehouse Management is a versatile solution designed specifically for third-party logistics providers. It is designed to significantly improve upon standard warehousing procedures associated with the processing of inbound and outbound shipments, inventory management, user access administration, and 3PL billing – to name a few.

An immediate requirement for Del Norte was the ability to perform ASN receiving and mass inventory imports via excel. FootPrint®, implements both of these processes, as well as automated error reporting that sends an email to a distribution list if an error occurs. Mari Scott, General Manager at Del Norte commented, “We wanted an enterprise 3PL WMS that was flexible, affordable, and user friendly. FootPrint® allows us to quickly import data from our customers’ manifests and scan their bar coded pallets. We’re always looking for ways to save time and resources without sacrificing accuracy. With FootPrint® we can offer complete traceability and improve customer service through automation and real-time reporting. It’s an impressive system.”

The FootPrint® Warehouse Management System is also equipped with advanced features developed specifically for refrigerated warehouses that can track lot and date codes, blast freezing fees, capture temperatures, automate accessorial charges and serial numbers. Mike Armanious, President of Datex remarks, “FootPrint® records transaction activity specific to each combination of client, project and product and automatically calculates billing charges for inbound handling, storage, and renewal storage. With the 3PL billing module, Del Norte will increase billing accuracy, reduce administration time and have the flexibility to meet changing customer needs.”
