Founded in 1910, our customer is an international brand made famous for lifestyle brand luggage. Focusing on design, development and innovation of new products, they are committed to using technology to produce high quality, versatile, safe and ergonomic products.

They provide leading quality products to domestic customers through a wholesale distribution channel, with self-operated retail stores and E-commerce platforms.

What were our customer’s requirements?

With 18 warehouses across China to supply all stores and E-commerce customers, they looked to upgrade their operations to support the growth of the company and to also meet the demands of the distribution from the supply chain to their customers.  This is where Honeywell Warehouse Management System (WMS) & Transport Management System (TMS) solutions came into play to make our customers requirements come true.

How did we meet our customer’s order?

The Honeywell WMS & TMS solution helped our customer warehouses standardise the online and offline operations, along with functional modules, such as park management and platform visualisation. In the warehouse, Honeywell WMS linked with the MINILOAD automation warehouse, conveyor line, high-speed sorting line, PTL and other automation equipment. This automated equipment is used in different stages in the warehouse under the system from Honeywell WMS innovative engines, to enable efficient operation and coordinated operation within the warehouse.

What was the end result?

The Honeywell system enabled our customer’s business to become a fully digitalised supply chain information system, enabling our customer to keep more accurate records of inventory. The system also achieved the fully automated warehouse target, which improved the efficiency greatly as the automation level that Honeywell provides is of leading level within the industry.
