PSI receives logistics order from Latin America


Avon subsidiary in Bolivia won over by logistics optimisation software

PSI Logistics GmbH was contracted by the Bolivian subsidiary of US cosmetics group Avon Products Inc. to implement a new logistics optimisation module of the warehouse management system PSIwms. Bolivia is the tenth country in Latin America to use PSI’s optimisation module.

The implementation of the new optimisation module in the national distribution centre in Santa Cruz was completed in August 2013 and considerably reduces process costs by an efficient load distribution in the areas of picking and shipping as well as stock transfer and replenishment. The software controls for example the optimum order-related supply of warehouse channels as well as the best-possible storage location and express-line assignment while considering all relevant factors. This provides the perfect basis, amongst others, for the rapid and flexible completion of orders within the group’s three-week campaign strategy. The continuous guidance of the staff throughout all processes and along optimised routes ensures increased efficiency and a high level of service thanks to reliable order picking.

The optimisation modules of the warehouse management system PSIwms form an integrated software solution for cost reduction and increased efficiency for intra-logistics processes in varying layouts. A total savings potential of up to 25 per cent can be achieved with this PSI software. The current order placed by the Latin American subsidiary marks the first-time use of the optimisation modules of the warehouse management system PSIwms in Bolivia. The Avon Group uses the software of PSI Logistics in a total of 25 subsidiaries for standardising both warehouse processes in distribution centres and its sales model.
