Invata Intralogistics Completes Distribution Center Automation Program for Old Dutch Foods
Invata Intralogistics, Inc. today announced it has recently completed a new automated distribution center in Hartland, New Brunswick, Canada, that will serve the Old Dutch Foods Atlantic region.
The expanded facility will utilize a combination of technologies provided by Invata Intralogistics, including conveyors, sortation, RF terminals, and Invata’s FastTrak TM Warehouse Control System (WCS) configured to manage orders and shipments in real time coordination with Old Dutch Foods JD Edwards ERP system. According to Jorn Remmem, Director of Plant Operations and Engineering, “The design of the expanded distribution center will meet four core objectives: A) Doubling our capacity to serve the Atlantic region, B) increasing the throughput to meet our investments in production capacity, C) eliminating errors through the use of new technologies, and D) providing complete product visibility and traceability.”
The completion of this system is another in a series of highly successful and innovative systems that integrate Invata’s FastTrak WM+ software series of products with JD Edwards’ ERP systems, manufacturing operations and distribution. According to Ryan Sheehan, CEO of Invata Intralogistics, “Invata is not only pleased with the successful completion of this system for Old Dutch Foods, we’re also looking forward to working with their team through the service and support phase of our relationship, which is just as important to both companies. While this has added another successful JD Edwards ERP integration to our list of accomplishments, this project is also the beginning of a more rapid expansion of our international presence within a growing list of customers in North America, Central and South America, and an expanded investment in multi-lingual software applications.”
