PSI Supplies Warehouse Management System for Logistics Service Provider NOSTA
PSIwms in operations at Stadthagen site since June
After supplying the NOSTA sites Lengerich and Ladbergen with the warehouse management system PSIwms, the PSI subsidiary PSI Logistics GmbH is now also supplying the Stadthagen distribution centre as well. After implementing the software in the first two sites, Stadthagen is now operating a system that the operator NOSTA configures itself.
The aim of the project, to allow new warehouse sites with PSIwms to be configured independently, was successfully realized in a number of steps. The customer information for the warehouse management system from PSI allows NOSTA to set up operations at new sites without PSI’s support.
In addition, the multi-site capability of PSIwms was used for NOSTA. Here, several linked warehouse management systems work together. This approach allows a cross-site view of the data from the other sites for users with the appropriate rights. Selected data is stored centrally with each site remaining independent. The Stadthagen site, where NOSTA operates a major distribution centre for Berentzen, has a storage capacity of about 35,000 palette positions and 6,000 shelf-spaces. The warehouse has a throughput of 2,000 palettes a day with 24-hour operation. Following a smooth data transfer from the old system, operations commenced as scheduled.
