MOL Logistics Launches Total Logistics Information Support System
TOKYO - MOL Logistics (Japan) Co., Ltd. (President: Kazuki Mori) today
announced the introduction of a Total Logistics Information Support System
that meets a wide range of customer needs.
>Easy access to status reports
The Total Logistics Information Support System offers much more than
warehouse control and tracking functions. By combining both functions, it
allows customers to get an overall view of their global supply chain by
stock numbers or invoice numbers, including inventory control, cargo in
transit around the world, and the shipping status of every order, including
partial shipments. Customers can also view the system's interface their
production and sales control systems. The Total Logistics Information
Support System also provides a range of data transmission options, including
wired or wireless direct interface or password-protected online access.
The system architecture was created in collaboration with Manhattan
Associates, Inc. and Toyo Business Engineering Corporation. Manhattan
Associates has earned an excellent reputation for its reliability in global
supply chain systems, while Toyo Engineering provides integrated services
from consulting, architecture, and operations to maintenance of the system.
The Total Logistics Information Support System brings together Manhattan's
warehouse control system, Toyo Business Engineering's trade logistics
management system, and MOL Logistics' wide-ranging know-how in distribution
and logistics. In addition to enhancing MOL Logistics' transport and
logistics services, the new system allows the company to provide
information-related services at various stages on a global scale, such as
support and restructuring of customers' logistics information.
>New system already in operation
The system is in place with a range of services starting this summer. For
example, MOL Logistics offers a combination of logistics and agency services
for a customer restructuring its logistics related to procurement of goods
from China. The company is also providing a total interface linking
production, sales control, and warehouse control systems for a customer
moving operations into Central Europe.
MOL Logistics' Total Logistics Information Support System offers a complete
"logistics infrastructure." This allows customers to concentrate on their
main business, such as manufacturing and sales, and focus management
resources on their core competencies. Along with the launch of this system,
MOL Logistics will step up its sales capabilities to deliver customer
support that helps improve operations, starting with logistics.
