Invar Systems, a global provider of Warehouse Management and Logistics Software Solutions, has implemented the Invar Warehouse System (IWS) Warehouse Management and Control Software at the new cold store warehouse facility serving the Public Refrigerated Warehouse(PRW) market for Innovative Cold Storage Enterprises, Inc.
The new PRW facility for Innovative Cold Storage Enterprises, located just outside of San Diego, is truly a state of the art facility, utilizing extensive green construction and operating methods along with high rise and narrow aisle storage and just in time distribution processes. IWS was deployed to provide key management and optimization of this facility.
IWS manages warehouse functions from recognition of incoming products through receiving, putaway, order batching and waving, picking, consolidation, staging, and loading and utilizes real time load tracking and operations management with radio frequency communications and bar coding. IWS also includes special optimization algorithms and processes designed to maximize efficiency in this system with very narrow aisles and high rise storage and to facilitate just in time distribution processes.
According to Tim Justice, Vice President of Invar Systems, “The PRW market requires extreme flexibility with every incoming load potentially different and every customer having its own preferences. We have worked to provide Innovative Cold Storage Enterprises with tools to drive operational efficiency while meeting the unique and varying needs of their customers. The implementation of IWS in this Innovative facility combines traditional WMS processes with newly developed Warehouse Control System processes that increase productivity and reduce order-processing time.”
Invar Systems offers all of the services necessary for a successful implementation including evaluation of current operation, system design and simulation, project management, modification of existing equipment and systems, installation and integration, on-site support, and full after sale 24/7 support.
