Manufacturing, Supply Chain, Distribution, Master Planning
Format: Member Showcase
Attend this session to hear from two AXUG/D365UG Members, Carte Blanche Greetings (British creator & distributor of greeting cards & gifts) and Snack Food Poco Loco (Belgian manufacturer and distributor of tortilla wraps and chips). This session will include them showing the spectrum of warehouse implementations: from simple & standard to complex & automated
Carte Blanche Greetings – initially advised that the Dynamics AX WHS module was too complex to implement. Nearing the end of their implementation, we will hear an unfiltered perspective on implementing standard AX WHS module. Was it really too complex?
Snack Food Poco Loco – one of the largest manufacturer of tortilla wraps and tortilla chips, shipping their products all over the world. Poco Loco recently opened a new fully automated high bay warehouse and distribution centre, with the ability to store 40.000 pallets and ship 300 pallets per hour. This facility is fully integrated with the Dynamics WHS module and Egemin materials handling equipment. How did Dynamics work with this highly automated warehouse?
