OCS Logistics provides climate controlled and dry product handling services with12.8 million cubic feet of storage area. The company plans to open a 100,000-square-foot expansion of their Allentown, Pennsylvania distribution center by the end of the year. The company needed more advanced warehouse management capabilities to meet customer demands, provide visibility into inventory and control costs.

"Last year we put together a strategic growth plan that included a powerful warehouse management and labor management system to meet our growth requirements. Customers have a lot of demands on 3PL suppliers, and we needed to add technological capabilities to remain competitive. RedPrairie gives us those capabilities to optimize our productivity and inventory accuracy, and our customers will have real-time visibility into inventory, receipts and shipments," said Carlos Navarro, Executive VP Operations for OCS Logistics.

Navarro continued, "It is important to us that we have a one-stop supplier for software, hardware and support. RedPrairie is our supply chain partner for the long run. The system is flexible and will evolve with us as our business continues to grow; plus the people are easy to work with and very committed."

Commented RedPrairie Company Leader, John Jazwiec, "RedPrairie solutions have long been considered the leader in the food and beverage marketplace. Add to that our multi-client management functionality and real-time visibility capabilities and the solution is a true match for third party logistics providers."
